... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !
used to register suid and sgid files with
suidregister(1), but with the introduction of
dpkg-statoverride(8), registration of files in
this way is unnecessary, and even harmful, so this program
is deprecated and should not be used.
converting to statoverride
Converting a package that uses this program to use the new
statoverride mechanism is easy. Just remove the call to
dh_suidregister from debian/rules, and add a
versioned conflicts into your control file, as follows:
Conflicts: suidmanager (<< 0.50)
The conflicts is only necessary if your package used to register
things with suidmanager; if it did not, you can just remove the
call to this program from your rules file.
This program is
a part of debhelper.
