Wudevadm-called-without-guard

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

The specified maintainer script uses set -e but seems to call udevadm(8) without a conditional guard.

udevadm can exist but be non-functional (such as inside a chroot) and thus can result in package installation or upgrade failure if the call fails.

Please guard the return code of the call via wrapping it in a suitable if construct, appending || true or depending on the udev package.

Please refer to Bug#890224 and the udevadm(8) manual page for details.
