I just installed the opennebula 4.12.1 Ubuntu packages on a Debian 8 machine. As I read that creating Debian 8 packages is on the todo list of opennebula, I want to explicitly mention that the Ubuntu 14.04 packages can be installed on Debian 8 with all dependencies fulfilled and with at least all services running; what I have not yet tested is if the services are also working like they should.
But now to my question: For all other services than opennebula itself, I had to call the init script from /etc/init.d/ manually, because the corresponding runlevel links in /etc/rc2.d/ are missing. Is there any special reason for that or has that just been forgotten? That is, is thery any reason why I should not create the runlevel links myself?
