dh_suidregister − suid registration program (deprecated)
Do not run!
This 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 is
deprecated and should not be used.
CONVERTING TO STATOVERRIDE
Converting 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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
