Etc portage package use 39 needs updating advice dating man younger

Having that changed over to the defaults can cause a lot of interesting problems...since that caused a lot of etc updates for me here.I always check if there are important new lines in it, (show differences) after this I decide to complete get rid of the new update or i merge the new lines in the config file.after that I check the rest, when I never touched the config file that needs to be updated i quickly look at the new lines and just use the new one. (cached) yes checking whether the x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc linker (/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld -m elf_x86_64) supports shared libraries...

I use the following strategy for cleaning out the need-to-be-updated-files, I first check for important files I don't want to overwrite: fstab, groups, etc.

Is there a log where such messages might appear (tried dmesg, they are not there, where else might they be?

Try touching a file named eg: keywords and see if that becomes the file for updates.

(I don't use auto-updates, so I can't give a complete answer.) Will Thanks, I tried it. It writes to the last -in alphabetical order- file. Before that all my keywords were automatically written to /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords.
