init-system-helpers 1.29ubuntu4 source package in Ubuntu


init-system-helpers (1.29ubuntu4) xenial; urgency=medium

  * script/invoke-rc.d: backport change from 1.36 so that logs showing a
    failure to start a service with systemd will include the necessary
    information to debug, not just instructions to run an additional
    command.  LP: #1596056.

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.
