It's correct to explain it on a Debian list, as it is for Debian. Allow me a OT note/question. Since the issue is solved, I guess it's ok to capture this thread? I'm using different Linux [1] so I stopped writing scripts using e.g. CPU frequency setup tools, instead I set it up by /sys/devices/system and regarding to other issues I use wrappers, e.g. "service".

spinymouse11.2@suse11-2:~> cat /media/archlinux/usr/local/bin/service

exec /etc/rc.d/$1 $2

So for Debian it would be

exec /etc/init.d/$1 $2

It's also possible to write a script for several distros, cat /etc/issue and then to continue with the commands and paths for that distro, but than all scripts become unneeded bloated.

How do you handle to run scripts for different distros? Linux distros always were a little bit different, but nowadays it's very much that differs.

[1] What is the correct plural of "Linux"?
