Package: nsca
Version: 2.7.2
Severity: minor

During install of nsca I got these warnings:

Selecting previously deselected package nsca.
Unpacking nsca (from .../archives/nsca_2.7.2_i386.deb) ...
Processing triggers for man-db ...
Setting up libmcrypt4 (2.5.8-3.1) ...
Setting up nsca (2.7.2) ...
update-rc.d: warning: nsca start runlevel arguments (none) do not match LSB Default-Start values (2 3 4 5)
update-rc.d: warning: nsca stop runlevel arguments (2 3 4 5) do not match LSB Default-Stop values (0 1 6)
 Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/nsca ...
   /etc/rc2.d/K16nsca -> ../init.d/nsca
   /etc/rc3.d/K16nsca -> ../init.d/nsca
   /etc/rc4.d/K16nsca -> ../init.d/nsca
   /etc/rc5.d/K16nsca -> ../init.d/nsca

I am not sure whether this is due to not following LSB correctly and/or the
fact that I recently upgraded sysv-rc (now version 2.87dsf-6), which pulled in

So far, no ill effects have been observed though.

These version numbers might be handy too:
ii  sysv-rc                       2.87dsf-6  System-V-like runlevel change mech
ii  insserv                       1.12.0-13  Tool to organize boot sequence usi
