equivs-build to package up some internal apps for distribution to our subsidiaries. Many require an equivalent script in /etc/init.d to kick off the app at boot.
- When I try to copy a file directly to /etc/init.d
apt-getalways appends ".dpkg-dist" to it. Why? It isn't appending anything to the my other files.
- How would I go about setting up a link from /etc/rc3.d to the startup script in /etc/init.d?
EDIT: well it appears that #1 is due to the file (apparently) being a replacement for an existing version of the same. Except that there wasn't a file there before. So it appears that the install is copying in the file, then replacing it?
