While upgrading from CentOS 5.7 to 5.8 I've received the following warnings:
warning: /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config created as /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config.rpmnew warning: /etc/ssh/sshd_config created as /etc/ssh/sshd_config.rpmnew warning: /etc/odbcinst.ini created as /etc/odbcinst.ini.rpmnew
(To know the reason for such files, and what one can do with them read - Why do I have .rpmnew file after an update? )
I want to know what exactly has been change in the default config file by comparing the old default file (the original un-changed configuration file) with the new default file (*.rpmnew). Then, I can apply the changes to my modified file (aka diff merge).
The problem is I don't know where can I find the original un-changed configuration file...
So my question is actually:
- How to find out what was the previous version of the package?
- How to get the file of that version?
