This tool configures system services in connection with system
runlevels.  It turns on/off services using the scripts in
/etc/init.d/.  Rcconf works with System-V style runlevel configuration.
It is a TUI(Text User Interface) frontend to the update-rc.d command.

rcconf (3.2) unstable; urgency=low
* Closes: #831936
2013-10-26 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (3.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Re-packaged.
2010-03-29 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (3.0) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed lintian warnings.
* If LSB comment header is used in init.d files, use only enable/disable.
2009-11-17 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (2.5) unstable; urgency=low
* Improved finding off state services(Closes: #556180).
* Add information for --expert(Closes: #556590).
2009-11-07 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (2.4) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed in calling update-rc.d to improve previous fix.
2009-11-06 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (2.3) unstable; urgency=low
* Tentative fixed in calling update-rc.d for stop service because newer
update-rc.d changed its behavior(Closes: #554701).
This fix will be changed when we can find the method to check whether
update-rc.d has enable/disable options.
* Changed in finding off state services, detects no 'S' in /etc/rc*.d as
off state. Rcconf detected any 'K' in /etc/rc*.d as off state previously.
2009-04-05 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (2.2) unstable; urgency=low
* Rcconf sets stop /etc/rc?.d/"K"NNname files with wrong number when off
in case mysql-server package is installed(Closes: #519555).
If you've already have missing packages on rcconf which was turned off
by rcconf, remove incorrect link as follows:
# update-rc.d -f remove <package>
* Fixed wrong messages when you use '--on' and '--off' options.
2009-03-14 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (2.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Incorrect installed path. Rcconf was installed to /usr/bin.
2009-01-21 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (2.0) unstable; urgency=low
* Changed rcconf path from /usr/bin to /usr/sbin.
To avoid confusion of this change, remain /usr/bin/rcconf as symbolic
link to /usr/sbin/rcconf for a while(Closes: #510082).
* Introduce expert mode so as to hide unnecessary services for users
(but very important for system). Use --expert if we want to display all.
* Added option '--on' and '--off' to select services in command line
(Closes: #296937,#375738,#488068).
* Added option '--list' to show current status(on/off) of each services.
* Added option '--config <file>' to set services from config file.
* Return exit status of whiptail/dialog(Closes: #510079).
* First try Short-Description in update-rcconf-guide(Closes: #510077).
2008-08-26 - Atsushi KAMOSHIDA <kamop@debian.org>
rcconf (1.24) unstable; urgency=low
* Added dialog support to package dependency again.
The dialog problem(original problem was fixed in dialog 1.1-20080819-1)
and some avoidance from rcconf has already been done in 1.23.
