postinst has special debug code conditioned on the presence of files in /home

Bug #176226 reported by James Troup on 2007-12-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
flashplugin-nonfree (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

The postinst does this:

                if [ -f /home/bart/src/flashplugin-nonfree/bartm_debug ]; then
                        WGETRC=wgetrc wget \
                                || fp_exit_with_error "download failed"

which is (hopefully obviously) bad for several reasons....

  * debian/config:

    debugging bits (LP: #176226).
  * debian/control: Readd versioned dependency for libflashsupport|
    libasound2-plugins to play nicely with either PulseAudio config
    while preserving OSSv4 users' ability to have audible "shiny"
