Bug Description

Binary package hint: runit-run

This package installs its own version of /sbin/init using dpkg-divert, and its own version of man 8 init.

Currently on natty it fails to install without a debconf frontend:

Selecting previously deselected package fgetty.
(Reading database ... 14526 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking fgetty (from .../fgetty_0.6-5build1_amd64.deb) ...
Selecting previously deselected package runit.
Unpacking runit (from .../runit_2.1.1-6.2ubuntu2_amd64.deb) ...
Selecting previously deselected package runit-run.
Unpacking runit-run (from .../runit-run_1.1.2_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/runit-run_1.1.2_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/runit-run_1.1.2_amd64.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It was removed from Debian due to this bug:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=562945

In general there should be nothing wrong with this package installing without doing the dpkg-divert until the user has had time to configure the system to boot properly. So that could be fixed.

However, if the package has been removed from Debian, without a maintainer in Ubuntu, it should probably be removed from Ubuntu as well.
