Needs Ubuntu-style init script

Bug #43569 reported by Gary Coady on 2006-05-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
setserial (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: setserial

When initially installing:
Saving state of known serial devices... backing up /var/lib/setserial/autoserial.conf done.

Then after installation:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/setserial start
Loading the saved-state of the serial devices...
/dev/ttyS0 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
/dev/ttyS1 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A

$ sudo /etc/init.d/setserial stop

With this patch, the following are the changes:

After installing the package:
* Saving state of known serial devices...
* Backing up /var/lib/setserial/autoserial.conf... [ ok ]

$ sudo /etc/init.d/setserial start
 * Loading the saved state of the serial devices... [ ok ]

$ sudo /etc/init.d/setserial stop

Note: this doesn't update the m68k version of the init script... do you need both modified to apply this?
