Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] Managing etc/* in an embbeded system
Date: Wed, 22 Jul 2015 09:27:50
1 We got an embedded gentoo system where we need to manage many conf files under /etc that we have
2 modified and should be under our control when an SW upgrade is performed.
4 Cloning every ebuild where we have modified its conf file(s) under /etc feels awkward so
5 I am looking for some other way to do this automatically during SW upgrade and I figured
6 this can not be an unique problem for us, so I wonder how other people have solved this problem?
7 Our customers will not use emerge directly and we will provide binary pkgs.
9 Any ideas welcome :)
