daemontools and ucspi-tcp on Hardy Heron

I was about to install daemontools and ucspi-tcp on Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04) when I found that the packages build-daemontools et al was not in the archive anymore! Instead of digging about what happened I found out that Intrepid Ibex[1] has some packages.

So what I did was download the packages daemontools, daemontools-run and ucspi-tcp, and then install them. A bit of a problem with that too, but the following steps did the trick for me.

# touch /etc/inittab
# dpkg -i daemontools
# dpkg -i daemontools-run
# dpkg -i ucspi-tcp
# echo "start on runlevel-1
start on runlevel-2
start on runlevel-3
start on runlevel-4
start on runlevel-5
start on runlevel-6

stop on shutdown


exec /usr/bin/svscanboot" > /etc/event.d/svscan
# initctl start svscan

And that's it! Have fun folks!
