[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#393323: resolvconf: /lib/resolvconf/list-records missing

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.35
Severity: normal

When booting after a recent update on an etch system, I get the
following message:

    Setting up resolvconf...run-parts: /etc/resolvonf/update.d/libc exited
    with return code 1

The last line was in red (ooo!). Looking at
/etc/resolvonf/update.d/libc, I see that the script failed because
/lib/resolvconf/list-records is missing. Since the libc file is in the
resolvconf package, I see two solutions:

1. If /lib/resolvconf/list-records is optional, then the libc script
   should exit with status 0 if the command is missing.

2. If it is required, then the resolveconf package should install
   list-records, or provide the required dependency.

I suppose the output of run-parts should have redirected to /dev/null to
clean up the boot message:

    Setting up resolvconf...failed.

Thanks, Thomas. You sure do get around ;-).
