    Default updating config files in Gentoo

    After an "emerge" is completed I get this message:

    * IMPORTANT: 47 config files in /etc need updating.
    * IMPORTANT: 7 config files in /usr/lib/X11/xkb need updating.
    * Type emerge --help config to learn how to update config files.

    So, I have used --help config and I have :

    # find /etc -iname '._cfg????_*'

    to get a list of files that need configuring, and I have also done:

    #etc update to auto-merge trivial updates (that must be some of the way there).

    What would be the opinion if I was to:

    CONFIG_PROTECT="-*" in /etc/make.conf

    Is this a bit extreme? and leave my installation open to goodness only knows what

    Default Re: updating config files in Gentoo

    Well, I took the bull by the horns and did it ;

    CONFIG_PROTECT="-*" in /etc/make.conf

    So, next time I update the Portage tree and emerge --update world, I'll know.

    I'm actually having a lot of fun with this Gentoo and it works so well.
    I wonder how it would go on my laptop? It has a 2.4ghz celeron chip and 256 mbs of ram.
