The bug wasn’t too hard to track down. The problem is the
update-rc.d script (run in the package postinst) is parsing the LSB headers in the DRBD
init.d script. The LSB headers tell
update-rc.d to not include runlevel 2 (Ubuntu’s default) when installing symlinks, so none is made in
rc2.d. Hence, the init script is not run during startup.
I put documentation and a debdiff (package patch) on the launchpad bug report. However, even though this package is in main, I have no faith this bug will be fixed by Ubuntu (see update below the fold). So, for your server’s enjoyment, grab the patched packages we are using at my company:
Add these lines to your
deb http://packages.devsuki.com/ubuntu/ intrepid main deb-src http://packages.devsuki.com/ubuntu/ intrepid main
Grab the public signing key:
Add it to your apt keychain:
sudo apt-key add devsuki-signing-key.asc
Otherwise, you can directly download the packages.
UPDATE (2009.01.27): According to what the “Launchpad Janitor wrote on 2009-01-26”, it appears this bug has been fixed in 2:8.3.0-1ubuntu1. However, this package appears to only be available in the development version of Ubuntu (jaunty) and not as an update to intrepid. I’ll post a question on the bug about it.
