Elyssa bash Update - modify etc/skel/.bashrc

Post by bernado »

Hy,

MintUpdate wants to update bash 3.2ubuntu16 to bash3.2ubuntu18, okay but then the system wants to modify etc/skel/.bashrc . I can keep the package or install the new one - So what shall I do ? ext/skel/.bashrc doesn't exist btw.

Not all that important which you do, but the recommendation is not to modify
And yes .bashrc does not exist but .bashrc-something exists

Tack Husse,
yes I will follow your advise, but It would be good to have more information in such a case. The "extra info" section in MintUpdate would be a good place for that 8)

Choose "Keep existing file". Although when checking the difference between the files nothing shows up, there is a difference.

Is there any difference in keeping or replacing the file? I replaced the file when it prompted me, and i havent seen any adverse effects as of yet.
