[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#504409: resolvconf runs too early in boot sequence - can't mkdir

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.42
Severity: normal

Resolvconf was running before /var was mounted at bootup, and tried
to mkdir /var/run/resolvconf while / was readonly.

The result is some mess on screen and some messup when /var is
eventually mounted (since /var/run/resolvconf may not be there)
or else no messup (/var/run/resolvconf happens to be there already).

Anyway, it runs too early. It was linked in at S07. I moved to S36
(after S35mountall). In rcS.d, I mean.
