Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.45

Possible dependency problem between resolvconf 1.45 and dnsmasq 2.51-1

Steps to reproduce:

Install squeeze from daily build (I used debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso
from Jan 02 2010)

Install the system without configuring a network, without installing ssh
packages and without standard utilities.

After boot, configure the system so that it can pick up packages:

echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolv.conf

{ echo "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/pub/debian squeeze main" ;  cat
/etc/apt/sources.list ;} >tmpfile && mv tmpfile /etc/apt/sources.list
## prepends

ifconfig eth0 up
route add default gw
## set up your interface and route

apt-get update

apt-get install resolvconf dnsmasq

...lots of messages, then:
resolvconf: Error: /etc/resolvconf/run/interface is not a directory
...continues and installs with no obvious problem.


I don't know if it is a resolvconf or a dnsmasq error.

I don't know if the error is really an error or if it should be a warning
