Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

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

This tag is experimental.

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: error
