Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#723: init-system-helpers: update-rc.d calls systemctl on a SysVinit system, creating a recursion
Package: init-system-helpers
Version: 1.65.2devuan1
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: wolfgang@???

Dear Maintainer,

I am trying to install a package which expects SystemD. I manually added
scripts and an initial set for sysVinit. However, the post-install script
calls "systemctl --no-reload enable <packagename>", which invokes
update-rc.d, which in turn diverts to a systemctl call, and so on.

Calling update-rc.d from the systemctl "abstraction" (surrogate?) seems
to be correct, but I would have expected update-rc.d to detect the system's
init system and - as I am using sysVinit on Devuan - just modify the links.

update-rc.d behaviour can also be reproduced when calling it for an already
installed service.
