   Package squid: merging configuration for file "/etc/squid/squid.conf":
   By default, RPM would keep your local version and rename the new one to /etc/squid/squid.conf.rpmnew
   What do you want to do ?
   - diff the two versions (d)
   - do the default RPM action (q)
   - install the package's version (i)
   - merge interactively with vim (v)
   - background this process and examine manually (z)
  Your answer ?  v
