What should i do with 99-com.rules?

Thu Mar 02, 2017 8:41 am

I did sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Everything run fine for a while then terminal asked me this:

Code: Select all

Configuration file '/etc/udev/rules.d/99-com.rules'
 ==> File on system created by you or by a script.
 ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.
*** 99-com.rules (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? 

What does 99-com.rules do? What answer should i give?

In these cases, when you don't think you've changed anything in that file, it's generally safe to take the new version of the file. This is complicated in this instance because it isn't immediately obvious what the file does. However a quick Google of the file name found this:

I would guess that the easiest way to handle it would be to accept the package maintainer's version, reboot, and then check raspi-config to make sure the peripherals you want to use are enabled and vice-versa.
