Thanks for this package. Comming from gentoo it makes updates really comfortable.
Could you make it find /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc.pacnew, too?

Malvineous commented on 2013-09-07 23:05

Updated to find *.pacnew under /usr/lib also

@luolimao: Done, thanks.

Can you change arch=('i686' 'x86_64') to arch=('any') so that users of other architectures can use it? Especially since it's just a bash script anyway.

@jpkotta: Thanks, updated.

No longer applies the patch. patch does not modify symlinks by default, and in src/, everything is a symlink to a file in parent dir. Adding --follow-symlinks in the patch command fixes it.

Thanks, this is the best tool for update settings!

Thanks, it works great :)

Meh, let's just do away with getting the copy direct from Gentoo. Code is now included in the package.

@Barthalion: Thanks for letting me know it broke.
