Esystemd-service-file-outside-lib

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.260. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package ships a systemd service file outside /lib/systemd/system/

Systemd in Debian searches for unit files in /lib/systemd/system/ and /etc/systemd/system. Notably, it does not look in /usr/lib/systemd/system/ for service files.

System administrators should have the possibility to overwrite a service file (or parts of it, in newer systemd versions) by placing a file in /etc/systemd/system, so the canonical location used for service files is /lib/systemd/system/.

Visibility: error

Check: systemd
