Re: Dpkg without sysv-rc
I installed it using "dpkg -i <debname>" without --force option, it
unistalled previous package and extracted files, but didnt configure (as
expected). but "dpkg --force-bad-path -i sysv-rc.deb" didn't work for me,
not sure why not. The fix i found was that dpkg-deb worked to extract the
files, and then i just copied them over, did a restart and then installed
the associated packages again so the config info was uptodate.
well, anyways, thanks allot, and it works now :)

How is that possible? Sysvinit Depends: on sysv-rc, so you must
have used --force with dpkg, otherwise it won't let you get into
such a state.

dpkg --force-bad-path -i sysv-rc.deb
