• Tips for managing files: pacsave and pacnew.


    Hi, I’m newbie in Antergos ( Archlinux). I would like to give me some tips to manage these files. I do not know whether to keep or delete.

    Example:

    [b:1kje1is2]My system:[/b:1kje1is2]

    find / -regextype posix-extended -regex ".+\\.pac(new|save|orig)" 2\> /dev/null
    

    /etc/passwd.pacnew
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf.pacnew
    /etc/group.pacnew
    /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew
    /var/lib/PackageKit/transactions.db.pacsave

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    I don’t recommend changing /etc/passwd or /etc/group but the others should be okay. Yaourt can walk you through making these types of changes:

    yaourt -C
    

    Cheers!

  • Thank you for your advice very grateful…
