Automatically updating and adjusting configuration files, especially if the admin made already changes to them, is not that easy and still one of the not solved problems under Linux. At the same time, more and more Linux Distributions provide variants with "Atomic Updates", which means either all updates are fully applied without error, or none. This makes updating configuration files even harder. In this talk I will explain the current problems, generic solutions for this, what various distributions choose to solve it and how we are planing to solve it.
