[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: connman
Version: 1.36-2 i386

Beowulf connman 1.36-2 i386 sysvinit script conflicts with resolvconf 1.79 package leaving the system in a state unable to do DNS lookups.

Problem one:

sed -n "22,25p" /etc/init.d/connman

if [ "CONNMAN_RUNSTATEDIR_RESOLVCONF" != "no" ] ; then
    mkdir -p /run/connman
    ln -sf /run/connman/resolv.conf /etc/
fi

Since string CONNMAN_RUNSTATEDIR_RESOLVCONF will never be equal to string no, the following line will always be executed
ln -sf /run/connman/resolv.conf /etc/


So, I am not what conditional

if [ "CONNMAN_RUNSTATEDIR_RESOLVCONF" != "no" ]

is supposed to accomplish.

Problem Two:

This creates a problem when using the resolvconf package. Package resolvconf links /etc/resolv.conf to
/run/resolvconf/resolv.conf However, after re-boot, /etc/init.d/connman overwrites this link and links
/etc/resolv.conf to /run/connman/resolv.conf
once again leaving the system in a state unable to do DNS look-ups.

I have brute forced a fix by commenting out the line
ln -sf /run/connman/resolv.conf /etc/ in /etc/init.d/connman

sed -n "22,25p" /etc/init.d/connman

if [ "CONNMAN_RUNSTATEDIR_RESOLVCONF" != "no" ] ; then
    mkdir -p /run/connman
#    ln -sf /run/connman/resolv.conf /etc/
fi

and re-linking /etc/resolv.conf to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

I am not sure what the correct fix should be.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Vernon

Vernon,

Many thanks for this. Devuan does not fork connman and we use Debian's packages
directly. Please report this directly to Debian's BTS.

Thanks

Mark
