Re: Checking for services to be restarted on a default Debian installation

- Do people agree that this would be something that's good to have in a
default installation? Are there drawbacks?
I like needrestart and I added it to my standard toolbox since its
admission in Debian (well, it took some versions for being really usable
with a readline front-end), so I second this proposal.
Please however note that it is not a replacement for checkrestart or a
plain lsof, as it doesn't care for programs that don't have an init
script. Maybe for such programs needrestart should warn and advice that
a manual intervention is required, in the same way it currently does for
kernel upgrades ?
