dh_suidregister - suid registration program (deprecated)
Do not run!
This program used to register suid and sgid files with suidregister
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
, and add a versioned conflicts into your control
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.
