Description Dean Bailey 2005-09-15 16:37:52 UTC
The 2005.1 x86 stage1 tarball has broken symlinks for the runlevels.
All of the symlinks that should be there by default are prefixed with

/etc/runlevels/default/local -> /tmp/stage1root//etc/init.d/local
when it should be
/etc/runlevels/default/local -> /etc/init.d/local

To fix this by hand you have to either delete and recreate the symlinks by hand,
or use rc-update del & rc-update add for all of the affected services.

This bug causes services that are default but not a dependancy of any other
service to not start properly, which could be a big problem.

As is most of the services are started automagically because of the deps, which
is probably why it did not get caught in Q.A.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download stage1-x86-2005.1.tar.bz2
2. Unpack & chroot
3. ls -lasF /etc/runlevels/boot ; ls -lasF /etc/runlevels/default

Actual Results:  
It shows the broken symlinks.

Expected Results:  
Symlinks should not be pointed to destination prefixed with /tmp/stage1root/
