NAMEdh_suidregister - obsolete suid registration program
SYNOPSISDo not run!
DESCRIPTIONThis program 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 should not be used.
CONVERTING TO STATOVERRIDEConverting 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.
