Lintian ReportsBETA


The specified init.d script has no systemd equivalent and the package ships other units.

This typically occurs when a maintainer missed script when adding systemd integration, or a new init script was added in a new upstream version.

Systemd has a SysV init.d script compatibility mode. It provides access to each SysV init.d script as long as there is no native service file with the same name (e.g. /lib/systemd/system/rsyslog.service corresponds to /etc/init.d/rsyslog).

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.112.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 02df726. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check systemd.
