Hi.

I am installing gentoo on an AMD64 system with a stage3 tarball that I have downloaded. I have reached stage 6b in the online documentation, and have just updated portage with 'emerge --sync'.

When the process finished, I was given a message telling me that there are 3 config files in /etc which need updating with emerge.

I have tried reading through the options in 'emerge --help --verbose', but there doesn't appear to be any information there, and I don't have the man package, or indeed any man pages installed at this point.

What is the syntax to get emerge to update the config files,please?

Mike.

Edit: Found it. If anybody else comes across this, the tool to use is:

etc-update

Mike.
