Hm. I can’t remember *ever* doing *any* customisations.
I normally just put an “exit 0” below the shebang to disable
an init script as, back then, nobody knew what the right way
was (now we know update-rc.d is supposed to be used).

But then, I migrated to file-rc *extremely* early, so it’d
obviously not got “all” links in its backup.

Hm, all it did for me was to emit all those warnings again.

Ah! So basically “rm -rf /etc/rc*.d” followed by “insserv -d”?
That may very well be the missing piece. I’ll try that on Monday
(not right now where I have only remote access), but thanks already.
