Description Andrew Church 2014-12-06 23:12:23 UTC
sys-apps/portage-2.2.15 renames (to ._cfg0000_*) files under CONFIG_PROTECT even when the content is the same as the existing version.  This is a regression from 2.2.14, which simply copied the (identical) new file over the old file in such cases.

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2014-12-06 23:37:08 UTC
I suspect that your /etc/conf.d/pciparm is a symlink for some reason, and causes it to behave differently since the changes from bug #485598.
Comment 2 Andrew Church 2014-12-06 23:55:04 UTC
$ ls -l /etc/conf.d/pciparm
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root          988 Dec  7 08:05 /etc/conf.d/pciparm
Comment 3 Andrew Church 2014-12-06 23:55:49 UTC
Also, this happens with all config files -- /etc/conf.d/pciparm was just an example (as it was the first file I noticed this problem with).
Comment 4 Andrew Church 2014-12-07 00:13:09 UTC
I think I see the problem: changed the meaning of FEATURES=-config-protect-if-modified from "protect unless file to be installed matches existing file, regardless of whether existing file has been changed from previously installed file" to "protect, always".  If I enable config-protect-if-modified, the files are not backed up, as I would expect.

If this is an intentional change then I suppose this bug is INVALID, though then I don't see a way to get the previous effect of disabling config-protect-if-modified (which is my desired setup).

It was not intended. It was just the unintended result of *lots* of changes.
