Package: sysvinit-utils
Version: 2.86.ds1-62
Severity: normal
File: /sbin/startpar


when using insserv and CONCURRENCY=(startpar|makefile), the following
init scripts fail to run:

Both have the following check:
  case `readlink /proc/self/fd/2` in
             log_action_begin_msg "Setting up console font and keymap"

When using startpar|makefile, `readlink /proc/self/fd/2` is /dev/pts/?.

A solution by pere is, to add keyboard-setup and console-setup to <interactive>
in /etc/insserv.conf (had to run "insserv" so this configuration change
actually had an effect. Maybe this is worth mentioning in insserv.conf?)
