    I run a sysvinit sid system and after a recent reboot noticed no logging to syslog, messages etc. and rsyslog was not running, when I entered “service rsyslog start” got
    “unknown service”
    rsyslog was updated on 11/8 from 8.2110.0-1 to 8.2110.0-2 and the updated deb file does not contain the /etc/init.d/rsyslog entry and the postinst code removes any /etc/init.d entry.

    I reinstated rsyslog in /etc/init.d and all ok again

    I cannot find any documentation about this change

    Look at Debian changelogs since that is where the deb comes from.
    No doubt the packager(s) don’t want to support anything other than systemd …

    Found it for you

    rsyslog (8.2110.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
    
      * Remove SysV init script

    BTW Debian sid now has rsyslog (8.2110.0-3 and others)

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Mailed the guy, bug reports are aplentay,
    Not expecting any answer, the more persons protest the more likely somebody may turn over in their sleep
    and realise without users and supporters debian becomes a dead duck. By supporters i mean paying kind too.
    My christmas donation will be for antiX.

    Post that soeone who thinks of users has turned over the removal. Poor poettering, his linux cancer init
    madness is not convincing everyone.

    Thank-you.
    Of course I should have looked at the changelogs, I use apt-listchanges and found it only lists Debian NEWS by default.
    Many thanks to you and your team for a fine distro.
