Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#517: ascii 2.1 - saned init script is broken
Package: <sane-utils 1.0.25-4.1+deb9u2>


s. Debian Bug report logs - #871543
broken init script (since 2017)


bug: start-stop-daemon

# /etc/init.d/saned stop

doesn't stop saned

solving problem according to Debian's bug report:

# sed -i -e 's/--retry --exec $DAEMON/--retry 10/g' /etc/init.d/saned

worked for me, after my dist-upgrade jessie -> ascii 2.1 stopped with

"Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/saned ...
[....] Restarting SANE network scanner server: saned[....] Stopping
SANE network scanner server: sanedstart-stop-daemon: invalid schedule
item (must be [-]<signal-name>, -<signal-number>, <timeout> or 'forever'
Try 'start-stop-daemon --help' for more information.
invoke-rc.d: initscript saned, action "restart" failed.
