there was a message or a thread on a gentoo list for which I am
searching. I already tried some keywords on google and on
http://www.mail-archive.com, bu had no luck. Maybe some here can remember.
It was about updating software and figuring out whether a certain daemon
has to be restarted because libs could have changed or even binary of
the daemon itself was overwritten etc. IIRC it was a combination of
commands. lsof could be one of them but I am not sure. If nobody
remembers such a message, maybe you can help me writing a script for
that? I would start with something like "for every process do check if
every shared library still exists" or so.
I think this is an issue which should be taken care of by ebuild
maintainers. Not that emerge should do a restart but maybe a einfo
message? I mean it may not always be obvious because which and how many
rc-scripts are to be fired up with "restart". I don't have a good
example right now. Maybe clamav? It has two parts ...
Thanks in advance
