Subject: zfsutils-linux: incompatible with OpenRC Init
Date: Tue, 19 Oct 2021 18:59:16 -0700
Package: zfsutils-linux
Version: 2.0.3-9
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Upon installing the package zfs-dkms, which zfsutils-linux is a dependency of apt tries to
uninstall openrc. There is no incompatibility upstream with ZFS so I don't understand why 
it would be an incompatible option in Devuan.

I used the command:
# apt install zfs-dkms

The outcome of this command is that I was forced to remove OpenRC and revert back to SysV init.
I expected to be able to install zfs-dkms without any conflicts with init, and to use ZFS with
Devuan 4 OpenRC.

I think you have missed the fact that zfsutils-linux/2.0.3-9[1] has an explicit

 Breaks: openrc

I think this explains the behaviour you have observed.

Devuan's zfs packages in chimaera come directly from debian without
recompilation, so you will need to discuss this further on Debian's BTS if you
think the dependencies are wrong.

Best wishes

Mark
