etc-update is a program used to update configuration files after package installations create .rpmnew files in the /etc directory. After an update with urpmi, rpm makes .rpmnew copies of all files it knows it should not overwrite. Of course you have to look at all those files and merge any changes. A tedious and much forgotten job.
