View Full Version : reconfigure?

June 20th, 2008, 11:58 AM
Is there an urpmi equivalent to dpkg-reconfigure some-package.deb?

I don't know... something like urpmi-reconfigure some-package.rpm?

And, how about a --reinstall option?

My google searches yield only similar questions :p
Is this even possible?

Thanks in advance. :-)

Erm, I don't know - what does that do?

Well, it runs (sometimes interactive) install configuration scripts supplied in the .deb package.
An example would be "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg", where it helps you set up xorg.conf for you.

there's no equivalent concept in Mandriva, no. If you want to restore the original configuration for something, reinstall the package (or just get the configuration files out of it with file-roller or whatever). For the specific example, on Mandriva, you'd use drakx11 , the X configuration utility.
