[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#550232: nsca: Please update the update-rc.d call in postinst script

Package: nsca
Version: 2.7.2
Severity: normal

On an updated Debian box the boot sequencing is based on dependency from LSB
comment into the init script itself. In this case disabiling the script with
the legacy command fails:

    update-rc.d nsca stop 16 2 3 4 5 .

This leads the nsca daemon running despite you have choosen to not.
It seems instead that the "disable" syntax is working:

    update-rc.d nsca disable

I think that also the enable part should be fixed to the new rules.
