[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#643558: /run transition: uses obsolete /dev/.initramfs

Package: sysv-rc
Version: 2.88dsf-13.12~nosplash
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: rleigh at debian.org
Usertags: run-transition


during an automated test, your package was flagged to reference files in
matching /dev/.initramfs [1]:

sysvinit-2.88dsf/debian/src/sysv-rc/etc/init.d/rc:	if [ -f /dev/.initramfs/progress_state ]; then
sysvinit-2.88dsf/debian/src/sysv-rc/etc/init.d/rc:		. /dev/.initramfs/progress_state

initramfs-tools was updated to no longer use (and create) this
directory [2] so its usage is now deprecated and /run should be uses for
such purposes. That said, the splash API isn't used anyway so the
attached patch simply removes it.
