I've filed a bug (#620191) against initscripts containing a proposed patch for this. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=620191 /var/run (→ /run) /var/lock (→ /run/lock) /lib/init/rw (→ /run/init) /dev/.* (→ /run/*) /dev/shm/.* (→ /run/*) writable files under /etc (→ /run/*) > Depending on that upgrade options change so we should nail that down > first. The bug report and attached patch highlight some of the issues for upgrades/new installs. The patch isn't yet fully complete; further discussion on how best to handle upgrades would be useful. The changelog in the patch has a few items marked with TODO which need more detailed specification. Hopefully we can get /run going fairly soon, once these are ironed out. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
