I am looking at the
for the the version in [experimental
and I saw this note.
- firehol has been moved from /sbin to /usr/sbin for consistency
This particular entry concerns me. I believe the firehol binary was
in `/sbin` because network comes up before `/usr` is mounted, this is
to accommodate systems where /usr is nfs mounted, which is permitted
per the FHS. Souldn't I be able to expect the firewall should be able
to function even if `/usr` cannot be mounted?
Seeing this also encouraged me to go look at the /etc/init.d/firehol
and I see it has `# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5`. I had expected to see `#
Another common firewall package shorewall leaves the main binaries in
/sbin, and starts in the single user runlevel.
P.S. I believe Jerome Benoit, the Debian maintainer, is subscribed
here, but should I also add a bug to the Debian bugtracker for this?
