NAME
deb-postinst - package post-installation maintainer script SYNOPSIS
postinst DESCRIPTION
A package can perform several post-installation actions via maintainer scripts, by including an executable postinst file in its control archive (i.e. DEBIAN/postinst during package creation). The script can be called in the following ways: postinst configure old-version After the package was installed. postinst triggered trigger-name... After the package was triggered. old-postinst abort-upgrade new-version If prerm fails during upgrade or fails on failed upgrade. old-postinst abort-remove If prerm fails during removal. postinst abort-deconfigure in-favour new-package new-version [ removing old-package old-version ] If prerm fails during deconfiguration of a package. postinst abort-remove in-favour new-package new-version If prerm fails during replacement due to conflict.

DH_METAINIT(1)						User Contributed Perl Documentation					    DH_METAINIT(1)

NAME
dh_metainit - install metainit files into package build directories SYNOPSIS
dh_metainit [debhelper options] [--name=name] [-n] [-o] DESCRIPTION
dh_metainit is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing metainit files (for further creation of initscripts via the update- metainit facility) into package build directories. It also automatically generates the postinst and postrm and prerm commands needed to create the appropriate initscripts for the init system employed on the user machine. Important: If generated postinst script finds /etc/init.d/ or /etc/default files with the same name as the shipped metainit files, and these are conffiles from non-installed packages (probably earlier version of this package) they are removed (or renamed if the user has modified them). This works only if the name of the new metainit is the same as the name of the old init.d and default file, otherwise you will have to remove these files yourself. See http://wiki.debian.org/DpkgConffileHandling for that. If a file named debian/package.metainit exists, then it is installed into etc/metainit/package in the package build directory, with "pack- age" replaced by the package name. OPTIONS
-n, --noscripts Do not modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts. -o, --onlyscripts Only modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts, do not actually install any metainit files. May be useful if the init script is shipped and/or installed by upstream in a way that doesn't make it easy to let dh_metainit find it. --name=name Install the metainit script using the filename name instead of the default filename, which is the package name. When this parameter is used, dh_metainit looks for and installs files named debian/package.name.metainit, instead of the usual debian/package.init. --error-handler=function Call the named shell function if running the init script fails. The function should be provided in the prerm and postinst scripts, before the #DEBHELPER# token. NOTES
Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause mul- tiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts. SEE ALSO
debhelper(7) This program is a part of debhelper. AUTHOR
