incorrect overwrite behviour with -U

this is merely a sneaking suspicion of a problem:

today i installed bogomipz' patched initscripts with pacman -U and it overwrote my rc.conf, local.conf etc - it backed them up ok but i had to move the pacsaves back.

Why?  When i upgrade initscripts it works fine - is this because i have used -S?

what's more i have this in pacman.conf:

NoUpgrade   = etc/rc.conf etc/rc.local

so i am fairly certain no package should touch them AT ALL!

Am I wrong?

Re: incorrect overwrite behviour with -U

ah - is it because the -U removes initscripts in it's entirety before installing the new one?  this is behaviour still seems a bit dnagerous!

Re: incorrect overwrite behviour with -U

it's pacman's default behaviour to replace files that you have xplicitily stated should not be replaced?

Re: incorrect overwrite behviour with -U

this still happens esp if i upgarde initscripts - try upgrading and then reverting with -U and see how you lose all your config files! it's great!  roll
