The fact that removed symlinks in /etc/rc?.d/ get recreated on
update and installs after remove (as opposed to virgin/after
purge) annoyed me for some time now. Couldn't this be fixed by
only calling 'update-rc.d install' on install and not on update
and only if the initscript is not already there? I mean, the
names of init scripts usually don't change, thus there is no
need to update the symlinks anyway exept the position changes.
Probably this could be done by a 'update-rc.d update' that is
called like 'update-rc.d install'. Then it would even be trivial
to change the order of links if some maintainer changes his
mind. (I mean the number in K66killrandomd).
What, you didn't now our windos emualtor, killrandomd?
