As previously announced, `initscripts` are no longer receiving any testing and

support has been dropped from various packages. Any users still using them

should switch to `systemd`.


`initscripts`, `sysvinit` and the various `rc` scripts are being removed from

the repositories to avoid any confusion about their status.

Wondering if this is where my SAMBA issue came from, believe I am still running SAMBA via init especially considering the error I got in webmin about /etc/rc.d/samba ? Hmmmmmmmm

$ systemctl status <unit>

File and print services for Microsoft Windows clients.

VERY Useful info Abarbarian. Thanks for pointing that out. Sometimes the obvious is not so obvious. And I have learned A LOT more than this from you while here at BATL. THanks my friend. :)
