Hello,

Two days ago, I installed Gentoo on my new machine. I have X and fluxbox installed (don't want kde!).

Now I wanted to get sound, so I emerged alsa and at the end it says I need to update 26 files!

Hmm, ok if I try one of them "diff /etc/._cfg0000_fstab /etc/fstab" I get this:


15,17c11,13
< /dev/BOOT /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 1
< /dev/ROOT / xfs noatime 0 0
< /dev/SWAP none swap sw 0 0
---
> /dev/hda1 /boot ext3 noauto,noatime 1 1
> /dev/hda3 / ext3 noatime 0 0
> /dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0


If I accept this, I don't think my machine is going to be functional!?

Correct -- it won't boot. That's why diff'ing each and every /etc file is so important after you update world/system.

Just remove the newer file and stick with your existing /etc/fstab and you should be fine.

Is it a bug or what? Is there a fix for that?

Thanks.

It is completely normal. In some packages there are files that need to be put in the /etc directory. However if that file already exists, then it will rename it to ._cfg????_*, as in your initial post. Do emerge --help config for more info.
