Hi,

After I did an emerge --update --ask world, it suddenly gives me some odd errors when I su into root:

Code:
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)


How do I fix this?

Sincerely, Jørgen

Instead of using etc-update, I would advice using dispatch-conf.
But eyoung100 is right, you didn't update your config files after updating your system.

What is the difference between etc-update and dispatch-conf.

I haven't tried dispatch-conf but I always see you saying to use dispatch-conf instead of etc-update.

Greetz,

Ska
