Package: systemd Version: 215-6 Severity: serious We restart systemd-journald in postinst on upgrades . Unfortunately, this breaks other services like network-manager .
There was a recent discussion on #systemd, where Lennart mentioned in a related context (full IRC log is attached), that restarting journald is a bad idea, as it is not properly supported atm: <poettering> JayF: but note that restarting journald to actually make it count is not really that good an idea <poettering> JayF: since we cannot push the stdout/stderr fds everywhere we will just close them <poettering> that means as you restart journald you lose the stdout/stderr output of all daemons, and you cannot get it back Unfortunately I failed to write a better commit message when I added the restart to postinst . I *think* I added it because I noticed problems on upgrades, when systemd was re-execd and the new systemd was talking to the old journald, i.e. a v204 systemd talking to a v44 journald led to garbage in the journal log. I'm not sure if we can just drop the restart completely. There is also , where the location of the syslog socket has changed. Maybe the least invasive change is, to move the systemd-journald restart into the if dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt-nl "215-3"; then fi section, so it's only run once, and not on every upgrade. Marking this as serious, since we need to find a solution for this for jessie.  http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-systemd/systemd.git/tree/debian/systemd.postinst#n135  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=756144  http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-systemd/systemd.git/commit/?id=faacffefa2ffe7fd40fd1717a582f438e5ad1e45  http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-systemd/systemd.git/commit/?id=e7ab0fc6f7497581ee1c48be44705bab175f7e02 -- Package-specific info: -- System Information: Debian Release: jessie/sid APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (200, 'experimental') Architecture: amd64 (x86_64) Foreign Architectures: i386 Kernel: Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (SMP w/4 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=de_DE.utf8, LC_CTYPE=de_DE.utf8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Versions of packages systemd depends on: ii acl 2.2.52-2 ii adduser 3.113+nmu3 ii initscripts 2.88dsf-58 ii libacl1 2.2.52-2 ii libaudit1 1:2.4-1 ii libblkid1 2.25.2-3 ii libc6 2.19-13 ii libcap2 1:2.24-6 ii libcap2-bin 1:2.24-6 ii libcryptsetup4 2:1.6.6-3 ii libgcrypt20 1.6.2-4 ii libkmod2 18-3 ii liblzma5 5.1.1alpha+20120614-2+b1 ii libpam0g 1.1.8-3.1 ii libselinux1 2.3-2 ii libsystemd0 215-6 ii mount 2.25.2-3 ii sysv-rc 2.88dsf-58 ii udev 215-6 ii util-linux 2.25.2-3 Versions of packages systemd recommends: ii dbus 1.8.12-1 ii libpam-systemd 215-6 Versions of packages systemd suggests: ii systemd-ui 3-2 -- Configuration Files: /etc/systemd/journald.conf changed [not included] -- no debconf information -- debsums errors found: debsums: changed file /lib/systemd/system-generators/systemd-sysv-generator (from systemd package) -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to debian-bugs-dist-requ...@lists.debian.org with a subject of "unsubscribe".
