Lintian Reports

E maintainer-script-should-not-use-service

All reports of maintainer-script-should-not-use-service for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The maintainer script apparently runs the service command. This command is reserved for local administrators and must never be used by a Debian package.

Please replace with calls to update-rc.d(8) and invoke-rc.d(8). If your package installs this service, this can be automated using dh_installinit(1) or dh_installsystemd(1).

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 9.3.3 (Interfacing with init systems) for details.

Severity: important, Certainty: certain

Check: scripts, Type: binary

This tag is marked experimental, which means that the code that generates it is not as well-tested as the rest of Lintian and might still give surprising results. Feel free to ignore experimental tags that do not seem to make sense, though of course bug reports are always welcome.

This tag has not been emitted in any package tested by Lintian.
