Actually the only change intended when updating the package sysvinit-scripts was that of /etc/rc.d/rc.4, but it happens that /etc/inittab is shipped in the same package, that's why it got a .new.I was looking at the Dotnew
Manage .new system settings files.
I did renew /etc/inittab and runlevel was set to 3 instead of 4.
I changed it back. .
The recommended way of using dotnew is to first use its "diff" or "vimdiff" feature to check the change on each file listed, and only then choose what to do about it.I new that would happen since I had a look first at inittab.new
Is that the idea of Dotnew?
In case you wrongly upgraded instead of deleting the new file, you still have a backup of the old one with a .orig extension that you can copy over the upgraded one, case occurring. In this specific case you could alternatively have run runlevelconfig and chosen the Graphical mode.
/etc/passwd would get a .new only if the package etc that ships it was updated. We will try very hard not to!If I would renew /etc/passwd I would have no more password.
This notwhithstanding I will test in a VM to see what would happen then, just out of curiosity.
This error, that I can't reproduce, has nothing to do with passwords.Further, does this error have any signiificance as for passwords?

PS at first I mistakenly edited your last post instead of answering it. I hope I have now restored it properly, sorry about that.
