|| ||Debian menu transition, part 2|
|| ||Thu, 6 Oct 2005 15:31:28 +0200|
Dear Debian developers,
Starting with the upload of menu 2.1.26, we enter stage 2 of the menu
First some statistics about stage 1:
1196 menu entries out of 2192 have moved to /usr/share/menu, which
is 55%, which is more than what I expected. Keep up this pace
and Etch /usr/lib/menu will be nearly empty.
Stage 2 transition :
(It is also fully forward and backward compatible).
Sarge ships with two symlinks:
/usr/bin/su-to-root --> /usr/sbin/su-to-root
/usr/bin/install-menu --> /usr/sbin/install-menu
In Etch the file and symlink has been swapped, and the prefered location
is the one in /usr/bin.
Menu files that use su-to-root should now reference it without the
/usr/sbin prefix (since it is in the path).
Menu-methods should change theirs first lines from
Finally the wm-menu-config script have been dropped. Sarge packages
maintainers scripts do not need it to function properly.
Thanks for your attention,
Imagine a large red swirl here.
