22 I've tried etc-update and dispatch-conf and I can't figure out either
23 one of them when it comes to merging.  I'd like a GUI tool where I can
24 click the one I want to keep with my rodent and then save.  Like you, I
25 get confused trying to select things and then have no idea if I'm about
26 to royally screw something up.  I end up doing a ctrl c, restarting
27 update tool and zapping the new file and praying that didn't break
28 anything either. 
30 I have the default settings so there may be a better way but I just
31 don't know what.  I sometimes wish there was a video showing different
32 methods of managing config files and me picking what makes sense to me. 
34 I might add, a good while back I started doing updates in a chroot and
35 then using -k on my main system.  Since then, I don't see config updates
36 hardly at all.  I wonder if building in a chroot affects that.
