I know, but IMHO rpmconfigcheck isn't something that should run as
initscript.

rpmconfigcheck searches for *.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files and then
prints out the result - and with the graphical boot screen, nobody
will see it. Therefore it's pointless to run it on boot.

Ah. Yes.

Well, in my main system I have it email me if the result is different
than on the previous runs. I forgot about this.


A much better option would be to run it after each zypper/libzypp
operation, because that is what actually changes the rpm database
and (possibly) leaves *.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files behind.

True. But it is so slow...


Or simply run it manually from time to time whenever you have some
time to cleanup the *.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files.

I believe that, if those files are not cleared, "bugs" can appear, or
misbehaviours, because of the system using the wrong configuration files.
