#1125 invalid debathena-dns-config install hangs on squeeze geofft

Reported by geofft, 12 years ago.


If you install debathena-dns-config on squeeze, you get something like this:

Starting domain name service...: bind9resolvconf: Error: /etc/resolvconf/run/interface is not a directory
invoke-rc.d.debathena-orig: initscript bind9, action "start" failed.

This hangs with a defunct bind9.postinst process that can't be Ctrl-C'd. If you go and kill the perl debconf frontend that was wrapping the postinst, then the install proceeds with

dpkg: error processing bind9 (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script killed by signal (Terminated)
configured not to write apport reports
                                      Setting up resolvconf (1.46) ...
mkdir: created directory `/lib/init/rw/resolvconf'
mkdir: created directory `/lib/init/rw/resolvconf/interface'

at which point aptitude does the "trying to recover" thing by re-trying setting up bind9, which succeeds, which finally permits installing debathena-dns-config.

I've reproduced this on linerva/linerva-dev/linerva-test and tyger.

  • bash needs to be rebuilt.
  • owl doesn't exist on Lenny and depends libperl5.8 on sid.
#1084 fixed debathena-dotfiles should not clean up sessions on upgrade geofft

Reported by geofft, 13 years ago.


dh_installinit adds code to the postinst to run /etc/init.d/debathena-dotfiles start. This seems like a terrible idea.
