Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.46
Severity: normal

While booting a failed service is shown because resolvconf tries to awaken fetchmail which is not running yet.


if [ -x /etc/init.d/fetchmail ]; then
    /etc/init.d/fetchmail awaken

should be something like this

if [ -x /etc/init.d/fetchmail ] && [ -e /var/run/fetchmail/fetchmail.pid ]; then
    /etc/init.d/fetchmail awaken
