[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#481334: nagios3 package upgrade leaves nagios3 stopped.

Package: nagios3
Version: 3.0.1-1
Severity: important


I can see nagios3 is stopped in nagios3-common and nagios3
installation scripts but started only in nagios3-common. So if
one upgrades only "nagios3", nagios is stopped but not started
after the installation.

$ grep -r 'nagios3 st' **/*(*)
nagios3-common/DEBIAN/postinst:         invoke-rc.d nagios3 start || exit $?
nagios3-common/DEBIAN/postinst:         /etc/init.d/nagios3 start || exit $?
nagios3-common/DEBIAN/prerm:            invoke-rc.d nagios3 stop || exit $?
nagios3-common/DEBIAN/prerm:            /etc/init.d/nagios3 stop || exit $?
nagios3/DEBIAN/prerm:           invoke-rc.d nagios3 stop || true
nagios3/DEBIAN/prerm:           /etc/init.d/nagios3 stop || true

(note that the 3.0.1-1 above is nagios built by myself (with the
patch for another bug I had submitted) with perl-5.10
dependency, so would be equivalent to the +b1).

Best regards,
