Still uses multiuser argument to dh_installinit

Bug #254261 reported by James Westby
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
net-snmp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


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

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

Hi Chuck,


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

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
