Oops, my daemon must have not been running when I tested my package.
Sorry about that.
The error was due to the -R flag that was passed to dh_installinit in
the past release: it prevented the upgrade process from stopping the
daemon before the new installation started.
I have corrected this behavior by adding a preinst script that stop
the daemon. But I'm not sure this is the best way to go. Is it?
Here are the relevant parts of the new changelog:
| tenshi (0.11-2) unstable; urgency=low
| * debian/control:
| - Set debhelper dependency back to (>= 7) as dh_overrides are not used by
| debian/rules anymore.
| * debian/rules:
| - Removed the dh_installinit override, in order to stop the tenshi script
| before upgrading the package. This will be applicable during the next
| * debian/preinst:
| - Added this pre-installation script in order to stop the tenshi daemon
| before starting the upgrade to the current release. This had to be
| done as the -R flag was passed to dh_installinit in previous release.
I have upload the new version on m.d.n .
Thank you Ansgar for taking the time to help me out.
