Subject: [gentoo-user] prevent package from creating dir?
Date: Mon, 20 Oct 2014 12:40:59
1 I've noticed that newer releases of systemd unconditionally create
2 /var/log/journal if it doesn't exist. I'm getting tired of nuking this
3 directory after every upgrade of systemd. I know how to configure
4 Portage to not overwrite config files, but is there an option to _not_
5 create a directory if it exists? Yes, I could edit the "Storage" line
6 journald.conf but thinking bigger picture (for when some other package
7 starts doing this) I'm curious if Portage can be told not to do this.
8 Thanks.
