[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#345968: initscripts: should depend on sufficient version of mount package

Package: initscripts
Version: 2.86.ds1-6
Severity: normal


current version of initscripts call "swapon -a -e" in

However, the -e Switch of swapon has only been introduced in util-linux 
2.11x, so I think initscripts should have a versioned dependency on a
sufficiently recent version of the mount package. 
(at least version 2.11x-1)
