Description Emmanuel Galanos 2000-08-05 06:38:39 UTC
initscripts depends on console-tools.
I think it would be better for it not to, as headless machines have no
need for console-tools.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-05 17:44:33 UTC
initscripts calls things from console-tools; therefore
it requires it.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-07 05:29:00 UTC
As of 5.40, initscripts is changed to only call
console-tools if it's there, so the requirement
is removed.

Of course, that means if you remove it on a
machine *with* a head, you'll lose some functionality.
