Bug Description

Binary package hint: ureadahead

I not really sure if that is a ureadahead issue or do-release-upgrade -d issue from 9.10 to 10.04, but when I did the upgrade on a testing system they ended up both being installed together in my machine, making it impoooosibly sloooow and full of error in my logs.

when I have found out that #1, they were not meant to be together and #2, I could simply remove sreadahead, I did

not sure if I have any traces, but I think I can try the upgrade in another system soon if really necessary

either the fix should be in the upgrade script it self, to consider removing the decrypted package during the execution, or the deg package of the ureadahead could verify the previously installed offender and get read of it...

why did they change names anyway? they look so similar to me (in function at least)... could they not be considered a newer version of whatever to be replaced by numbering system in dkpg alone?

well, feel free to ask for logs and checks, I'll do my best to get them and post back here.

The sreadahead package left on your system is not actually sreadahead, but a package intended to clean up sreadahead's data files on upgrade - it's intended to be safely removed.

Leaving this bug open to remind us that the package can be dropped in Maverick

summary: - do-relase-upgrade to 10.04 keeps sreadahead together with ureadahead
+ Remove sreadahead transitional package

Thanks Bilal! I merged your branch. I just reverted --sourcedir debian/ureadahead, that's conceptually backwards. (This now doesn't need dh_install in the first place any more, as you removed the .install file).
