After downloading updates: Shorewall

Postby eastcoastdrifter » Sat Aug 27, 2005 9:58 am

Hi All,
Just a small query. I've downloaded all the relevant updates and I'm left with Shorewall saying things that I'm not too sure about.

A window is here, showing all sorts of details, but in the main saying:

Inspecting/etc/shorewall/interfaces

There are three parts to this window:
/etc/shorewall/interfaces:
/etc/shorewall/interfaces.rpmnew:
changes


After these windows, at the bottom it says:
Remove.rpmnew Use.rpmnew as main file Do nothing


I've reloaded before and just chose the Do nothing option, as I knew I'd be reloading the system a few times. however, with everyone's excellent help on this forum, I now feel comfortable to actually start using Mandriva for a while. Although I'm using the Gnome desktop, it seems a bit friendlier.

Any advice is as usual, very welcome.

Sorry to break into the Bank Holiday!

kind regards to all, Pete.

Basically it is asking whether you want to use your existing configuration file or the one from the new RPM you installed. As a general rule, if you have not changed any of the program's settings fro the defaults, use the updated file, otherwise stick with your customised settings.
