[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#601108: isc-dhcp-server: missing conflict with dhcp3-server

Package: isc-dhcp-server
Version: 4.1.1-P1-9
Severity: normal


for some reason, my Testing/Squeeze machine pulled isc-dhcp-server. I
can't remember doing this, but anyway, the problem is that I also have
dhcp3-server installed. I installed that package back when the machine
was running Lenny. This leads to the following interesting behaviour:

* /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server exits quietly, but does neither start nor
  stop the DHCP server.
* Configuration is now in /etc/dhcpd instead of /etc/dhcp3, so changing
  anything in /etc/dhcp3 has absolutely no effect.

Since isc-dhcp-server is supposed to be the successor of dhcp3-server, I
suggest that the package conflicts with dhcp3-server and copies any
existing dhcp3-server configuration over.

Kind regards,
