2016.9 includes a rewrite of each of the daemons used by LAVA,
lava-server, lava-master and lava-slave. When installing the upgrade,
admins need to accept the maintainer's version of the scripts in
/etc/init.d/ for these daemons. Where previously changes were made in
the scripts in /etc/init.d/, the same parameters can now be changed in
associated configuration files to prevent these conflicts in the
/etc/init.d/lava-slave - change /etc/lava-dispatcher/lava-slave
/etc/init.d/lava-master - change /etc/lava-server/lava-master
/etc/init.d/lava-server - change /etc/default/lava-server
The prompt would look something like this:
Configuration file '/etc/init.d/lava-server'
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer's version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : start a shell to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** lava-server (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? y

There is currently a delay on uploading lava-server to
jessie-backports due to problems with uwsgi in Debian. A backport will
be made available once these problems are fixed. In the meantime, the
same build as will later appear in jessie-backports is available in
