Re: nut package freeze exception request (dependency based boot)
Why is the symlink provided? Where is the definition of the
ups-monitor virtual package written down? What is using this symlink?
I assume a good solution should take into account the answers to these
It's there to be called by various parts of "init", though right now I
think only /etc/init.d/halt calls it (to perform last-moment power-down
of the UPS).
There was a long thread on debian-devel about this feature. There was
no way to place it under rc.d because it had be be executed absolutely
last (after filesystems had been unmounted). Not all UPS systems
provide a delay between the signal and power-off.
