       dh_installinit - install init scripts into package build directories

       dh_installinit [debhelper options] [--name=name] [-n] [-r] [-d]
       [-- params]

       dh_installinit is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing init scripts and associated defaults files into package
       build directories.

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

       If a file named debian/package.init exists, then it is installed into
       etc/init.d/package in the package build directory, with "package"
       replaced by the package name.

       If a file named debian/package.default exists, then it is installed
       into etc/default/package in the package build directory, with "package"
       replaced by the package name.

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

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

       -r, --no-restart-on-upgrade
	   Do not restart 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 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

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

	   Install 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.init and debian/package.name.default,
	   instead of the usual debian/package.init and debian/pack

	   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.

	   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_clean -k" 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.
