NAME

etc-update - handle configuration file updates  

SYNOPSIS

etc-update [options] [--automode <mode>] [paths to scan]  

DESCRIPTION

etc-update is supposed to be run after merging a new package to see if there are updates to the configuration files. If a new configuration file will override an old one, etc-update will prompt the user for a decision.

etc-update will check all directories specified on the command line. If no paths are given, then the CONFIG_PROTECT variable will be used. All config files found in CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK will automatically be updated for you by etc-update. See make.conf(5) for more information.

etc-update respects the normal PORTAGE_CONFIGROOT and EROOT variables for finding the aforementioned config protect variables.  

OPTIONS

-d, --debug
Run with shell tracing enabled.
-h, --help
Surprisingly, show the help output.
-p, --preen
Automerge trivial changes only and quit.
-v, --verbose
Show settings and important decision info while running.
--automode <mode>
Select one of the automatic merge modes. Valid modes are: -3 -5 -7 -9. See the --help text for more details.
