ifrename package not purged

Bug #46817 reported by Laurent Bigonville on 2006-05-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


I've update a computer form breezy to dapper using the update-manager. I get "/sbin/ifrename command not found" during the boot... The ifrename init script doesn't check for the executable to be present... The ifrename package should be pruged instead of simply removed

Thanks for your bugreport.

I can add a rule to the dist-upgrader to purge the ifrename package if that is save to do in all cases. Keybuk, what do you think?

Same problem when changing /etc/apt/sources.list from breezy to dapper and running sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

 Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

ifrename no longer exists in current releases of Ubuntu, and upgrades from breezy to anything but dapper are not supported. Thus this bug is no longer relevant in the current world. I apologize for marking it invalid, but that's the best state Launchpad provides. (The bug is not invalid, it is obsolete, but none of the other options are good either.)
