Package: initscripts
Version: 2.86.ds1-7
Severity: normal

The postinst script fails, probably because I am using file-rc:

This bug reported as occurring in an experimental version of sysvinit

with this message.

sysvinit (2.86.ds1-9) experimental; urgency=low

  [ Thomas Hood ]
  * Split mountdevsubfs out of mountvirtfs and run it at S04 and S37.
    This should not behave any differently, but the split will allow
    packages that futz with /dev to do this at S03.
  * mountnfs.sh: Eliminate unnecessary use of subshell
  * umountfs: Only run umount if there is something to unmount
    (Closes: #345272)
  * urandom: Set PATH so that find can be found  (Closes: #345273)
  * bootclean.sh: Improve, homogenize file deletion code
  * init: 64_init_set_PATH.dpatch: Set PATH if it's unset on re-exec
    (Closes: #345370)
  * init: 65_init_u_in_06.dpatch: Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0, 6
    (Closes: #345719)
  * umountroot: Remount ro with -f on GNU/kFreeBSD  (Closes: #344547)
  * checkroot.sh, checkfs.sh: Pause for five seconds if sulogin fails
    (Partially addresses: #337444)
  * Include /var/log/fsck/ in initscripts package  (Closes: #346139)
  * Replace /lib/init/functions.sh with /lib/init/mount-functions.sh
    for use by mountvirtfs and mountdevsubfs
  * various initscripts: Clean up code that reads fstab
  * various scripts: Redirect which program's stderr to /dev/null since
    the GNU version prints an error message when the command is not
    found  (Closes: #345321)
  * /etc/default/rcS: Make VERBOSE and DELAYLOGIN default to "no"
  * /etc/default/rcS: Remove variable descriptions; refer to man page
  * rcS.5: Fix descriptions of variables
  * Remove obsolete docs
  * Make initscripts Depend on mount >= 2.11x-1  (Closes: #345968)
  * Remove obsolete dependencies on bsdutils, coreutils, dpkg, kbd and
    util-linux: the versions in question are older than oldstable, so
    any newly installed system and any system that has upgraded to
    sarge (or even woody) satisfies the constraints.
  * Remove obsolete dependency on the last package: last was forced off
    systems when they upgraded to buzz
  * Add Replaces to Conflicts: mdutils which no longer exists even in
  * initscripts postinst: Remove obsolete GMT-to-UTC code: this
    conversion was performed when systems were upgraded to potato
  * sysvinit: Depend on libc6 rather than Pre-Depending on it; we don't
    do anything special in the preinsts any more
  * Correct documentation of init's -e and -t options
  * Tweak descriptions
  * Add READMEs for remaining runlevel dirs  (Closes: #242957)
  * Previous release also
    closes: #227540 "skeleton: Don't include /usr/local/* in PATH"
    closes: #346415 "mountnfs.sh doesn't work with the "bg" mount option"

  [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
  * sysv-rc: Fix some typos in the startpar handling.  (Closes: #345269)
  * Add code to detect and report bad 'exit' calls in init.d scripts,
    if they kill /etc/init.d/rc.
  * Make sure sourcing work with dash /bin/sh, by using 'set $action'
    to pass arguments to the script. (Closes: #345267)

  Thanks to Mark Hatle for help with this release.

sysvinit (2.86.ds1-8) experimental; urgency=low

  [ Thomas Hood ]
  * Omit /run until we are sure it's needed  (Closes: #344001)
  * Previous release also
    closes: #338736 "mountvirtfs: Succeeds in various cases it should fail"
    closes: #342160 "checkroot.sh ignores fsck result"
    closes: #342744 "checkroot.sh sources mountvirtfs, yet attemps to supply arguments"
  * Use /proc/mounts instead of /etc/mtab when unmounting  (Closes: #338801)
  * Override lintian warnings re: top-level dirs
  * Check for files under mountpoints more thoroughly
  * initscripts.postinst:
    + Don't fail to install on file-rc systems  (Closes: #343993)
    + Don't fail to install in chroots  (Closes: #344089)
  * No longer keep the dynamic nologin flag file on the root filesystem;
    instead, keep it at /var/lib/initscripts/nologin.  Note to admins:
    initscripts's postinst symlinks /etc/nologin to the latter location.
    To switch login delaying on or off permanently, set DELAYLOGIN=no in
    /etc/default/rcS and either create or delete (respectively)
  * mountvirtfs: Mount /dev/shm earlier; move long comment to README.Debian
  * Add 45_pidof_symlink.dpatch: Make pidof an absolute symlink
    (Closes: #343862)
  * debian/rules, 30_strip.dpatch: Strip .comment section from executables
    (Closes: #343863)
  * In umountfs, run umount with -f  (Closes: #344547)

  [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
  * Enable the startpar option as it should work now that .sh scripts
    are serialized.  The clock should no longer jump while startpar
    is used.
