Hi. I would like to upload a new sysvinit package to Debian, but am
unsure if the proposed fix for #738855 should be included or not.
What do the rest of you mean?
The current changelog for sysvinit version 2.88dsf-52 look like this:
[ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
* Replace debian/watch with file available from
* Make sure init-d-script exit at the end, to make sure init.d script
is only sourced once.
* kFreeBSD can not use a script as an interpreter. Rewrite
init.d/skeletop to source /lib/init/init-d-script instead.
* Adjust /lib/init/init-d-script to specify --exec when starting and
stopping using start-stop-daemon.
[ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
* In sendsigs, skip killing any root user process which name starts with
'@' character. (Closes: #738855)
When start par enter experimental, I plan to upload a version of
sysvinit without startpar to experimental to test it a bit, and then
upload both to unstable. The sysvinit changes for this are in the
There is also a insserv version in experimental that might need a bit
more work to integrate properly with systemd (someone need to
undertsand and perhaps fix #738585), and it should also be uploaded to
Help and comments are most welcome. :)
Upstream-wise, I hope to find time to release a new version of
sysvinit, startpar and insserv with all relevant Debian patches
included. These new versions fixes some minor issues discovered by
coverity, and should make the tools a bit more robust.
