DH_INSTALLINIT(1)			    Debhelper				DH_INSTALLINIT(1)

       dh_installinit - install upstart jobs or init scripts into package build directories

       dh_installinit [debhelperoptions] [--name=name] [-n] [-R] [-r] [-d] [-O] [--params]

       dh_installinit is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing upstart job files
       or init scripts with associated defaults files into package build directories, and in the
       former case providing compatibility handling for non-upstart systems.

       It also automatically generates the postinst and postrm and prerm commands needed to set
       up the symlinks in /etc/rc*.d/ and to start and stop the init scripts.

	   If this exists, it is installed into etc/init/package.conf in the package build

	   Otherwise, if this exists, it is installed into etc/init.d/package in the package
	   build directory.

	   If this exists, it is installed into etc/default/package in the package build

       -n, --noscripts
	   Do not modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts.

       -o, --onlyscripts
	   Only modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts, do not actually install any init script,
	   default files, or upstart job. May be useful if the init script or upstart job is
	   shipped and/or installed by upstream in a way that doesn't make it easy to let
	   dh_installinit find it.

	   If no upstart job file is installed in the target directory when dh_installinit
	   --onlyscripts is called, this program will assume that an init script is being
	   installed and not provide the compatibility symlinks or upstart dependencies.

       -R, --restart-after-upgrade
	   Do not stop the init script until after the package upgrade has been completed. This
	   is different than the default behavior, which stops the script in the prerm, and
	   starts it again in the postinst.

	   This can be useful for daemons that should not have a possibly long downtime during
	   upgrade. But you should make sure that the daemon will not get confused by the package
	   being upgraded while it's running before using this option.

       -r, --no-restart-on-upgrade
	   Do not stop init script on upgrade.

	   Do not start the init script on install or upgrade, or stop it on removal.  Only call
	   update-rc.d. Useful for rcS scripts.

       -d, --remove-d
	   Remove trailing d from the name of the package, and use the result for the filename
	   the upstart job file is installed as in etc/init/ , or for the filename the init
	   script is installed as in etc/init.d and the default file is installed as in
	   etc/default/ . This may be useful for daemons with names ending in d. (Note: this
	   takes precedence over the --init-script parameter described below.)

       -uparams --update-rcd-params=params
       -- params
	   Pass params to update-rc.d(8). If not specified, defaults will be passed to

	   Install the upstart job file or the init script (and default file) using the filename
	   name instead of the default filename, which is the package name.  When this parameter
	   is used, dh_installinit looks for and installs files named
	   debian/package.name.upstart, debian/package.name.init and debian/package.name.default,
	   instead of the usual debian/package.upstart, debian/package.init and

	   Use scriptname as the filename the init script is installed as in etc/init.d/ (and
	   also use it as the filename for the defaults file, if it is installed). If you use
	   this parameter, dh_installinit will look to see if a file in the debian/ directory
	   exists that looks like package.scriptname and if so will install it as the init script
	   in preference to the files it normally installs.

	   This parameter is deprecated, use the --name parameter instead. This parameter will be
	   ignored completely for upstart jobs.

	   Only install an upstart job file, and do not include maintainer script code to replace
	   an init script with that upstart job.

	   This parameter is intended for use when the "package.upstart" file is new and only to
	   be used on Upstart-based systems.

	   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.

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations
       of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added
       to maintainer scripts.


       This program is a part of debhelper.
