it was probably very rare anyway :-). I remember YaST stores a file
That said, what is the prefered action? backup the old file or write
some sort of file.ext.yast prefered example?
It depends. If YaST can parse the
whole configuration file it should only
change the affected values and leave the other values untouched. If that isn't
possible I think YaST should warn the user that not all manually edited config
options can be preserved.
for example what is yast doing with /boot/grub/menu.lst?
For this file it add lines
###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
NB: this situation should be reported on the yast page of the wiki,
with the bugzilla action needed. It's very nice to have somebody
identified try solve any such question :-)
