Bug Description

Hi,

net-snmp still uses the multiuser argument to dh_installinit, but this is
now deprecated.

For how to change the package to no longer use this please see

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-announce/2008-June/000430.html

Please forward the new patch to Debian when you do this, as "multiuser"
isn't applicable to Debian, but the new scheme is.

Thanks,

James

Am I missing something.

Hi Chuck,

+DEB_UPDATE_RCD_PARAMS_snmpd=multiuser

will use cdbs magic to pass this through to dh_installinit and
hence update-rc.d

Thanks,

James

Hi,

Thanks for working on this bug. However, the fix is not complete,
as the LSB headers in debian/snmpd.init were not updated to
reflect the new values.

Also, the current header (which are also in Debian) do not have
"1" in Default-Stop. Does this mean that the daemon should be
kept running in single user mode? If so the new arguments
to update-rc.d are not correct, as they will stop the daemon
then.

Thanks,

James
