Bug#605662: upgrade-reports: removing splashy prevents booting (#512951)
Justification: breaks the whole system
I tried to provide this information to #512951 but it was not possible (fixed
and archived since over 1 1/2 years).
during a dist-upgrade from lenny to squeeze I removed (but not purged)
most packages not in squeeze (see #597462: "splashy: Splash screen
prevents gdm3 start").
Because of this I got bitten by #512951 which still is in lenny (lenny is
0.3.13-3). Since it breaks all initscripts ("return: 24: Illegal number:
Starting") and leaves the filesystem ro #512951 should be fixed in lenny, too.
Workaround: booting via live CD and renaming /etc/lsb-base-logging.sh manually.
After that, splashy is still called during startup (initrd?) and causes a
"splashy: 'command not found'" IIRC, but that is less important. Please adress
