[PlanetCCRMA] xinitd upgrade question

OK, so then I should (technically) take the *.rpmnew file and replace the
existing ones I suppose?

I noticed that all the entries are the same, but the order is different. I
hate to presume that the order makes no difference.

If I was to swap out the old files for the new, do I need to reboot or is
there some sort of restart I can do?

None unless you have customized the services file. What happens is that
that file is a configuration file and rpm was instructed by the package to
not overwrite it. So rpm warns the user that the new configuration file
was created with a .rpmnew sufix just in case the user wants to take a
look at it and maybe translate any changes to the existing file.
