Einit.d-script-missing-dependency-on-local_fs

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.232. That is the most recent version we know about.

The given init script seems to refer to /var, possibly using a file from there. Without a dependency on $local_fs in Required-Start or Required-Stop, as appropriate, the init script might be run before /var is mounted or after it's unmounted.

Using Should-Start or Should-Stop to declare the dependency is conceptually incorrect since the $local_fs facility is always available. Required-Start or Required-Stop should be used instead.

Refer to https://wiki.debian.org/LSBInitScripts for details.
