Hi, give me some tips please, first of all, first screen:
*** The directory specified for the temporary root environment,
/var/tmp/temproot, exists. This can be a security risk if untrusted
users have access to the system.
Use 'd' to delete the old /var/tmp/temproot and continue
Use 't' to select a new temporary root directory
Use 'e' to exit mergemaster
Default is to use /var/tmp/temproot as is
How should I deal with this? [Use the existing /var/tmp/temproot]
Should I "d" the old temproot or should I just hit "Enter"?
Second thing, when I actually merging files, what I do is I hit "v" -
variously include common lines and then I hit "m" to merge, primarily
using "r" right side.
By "verbosely include common lines" I only "Guess" that the mergemaster
will include everything common from both files and then by using "r"
switch I'm adding everything "fresh" from the new files (the files I
just cvsuped), then I hit "q" to get out and then I hit "i" to install
I do not need to edit any of my files during update, I just need to save
what I have and add enw stuff.
If you see my logic, please let me know if it's correct.
Big Thanks ;-)
Best Regards, Anton
