Subject: [gentoo-user] dispatch-conf, the big pic?
Date: Sat, 30 Dec 2017 18:10:50
1 I realized I don't really understand it - I just repeat by rote some
2 keystrokes. In particular:
4 What do the 'z' and 'n' commands do exactly, and what's the difference
5 between them?
7 After I do a 'm', how do I actually use the result of the merge? Is the
8 merged file now the same as the 'new' one, or the same as the 'old' one?
9 IOW, if I do 'm' and then 'z', will the merged version be the active
10 one?
12 Neither manpage nor wiki is of any help answering these.
