Configuration file updates? [Solved]

Postby dirigible » Thu Dec 13, 2012 13:50

Rigo is giving me the following message.
It is extremely important to update these configuration files before rebooting the system.

I have no idea what this is about. Should I just accept the changes?

it means that the system want to change this files but the files have been updated since last update.
you do equo conf update from terminal or maybe do let me see on rigo (I dont use it personnaly) and check the output.

As a general rule it is always a good idea to accept the changes that entropy (rigo) suggests, The only time not to is if you have personally edited a configuration file for a specific purpose, The three mentioned there should be accepted.

I don't think Rigo actually updates these files for you (stand to be corrected here).

As manifesto says above, I always issue as root in a terminal equo conf update

In fact it does, and it asks for the root password first.
