init-system-helpers 1.29ubuntu2 source package in Ubuntu


init-system-helpers (1.29ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium

  * invoke-rc.d: Under systemd, "runlevel" only switches to 3 or 5 when have been reached, not before.
    Adjust the runlevel check accordingly. This is only relevant for the check
    for wrong/dangling rcN.d/ symlinks, so just pin it to "5" (the precise
    value does not matter much). Fixing this in systemd requires bigger
    architectural changes, so use this tiny (and backportable) bandaid for the
    time being. (LP: #1575572)

dh-systemd: debhelper add-on to handle systemd unit files

 dh-systemd provides a debhelper sequence addon named 'systemd' and the
 dh_systemd_enable/dh_systemd_start commands.
 The dh_systemd_enable command adds the appropriate code to the postinst, prerm
 and postrm maint scripts to properly enable/disable systemd service files.
 The dh_systemd_start command deals with start/stop/restart on upgrades for
 systemd-only service files.

init: System-V-like init utilities - metapackage

 This package is an essential metapackage which allows you to select from
 the available init systems in Ubuntu (systemd, upstart) while
 ensuring that one of these is available on the system at all times.

init-system-helpers: helper tools for all init systems

 This package contains helper tools that are necessary for switching between
 the various init systems that Debian contains (e. g. sysvinit or
 systemd). An example is deb-systemd-helper, a script that enables systemd unit
 files without depending on a running systemd.
 It also includes the "service", "invoke-rc.d", and "update-rc.d" scripts which
 provide an abstraction for enabling, disabling, starting, and stopping
 services for all supported Debian init systems as specified by the policy.
 While this package is maintained by pkg-systemd-maintainers, it is NOT
 specific to systemd at all. Maintainers of other init systems are welcome to
 include their helpers in this package.
