Subject: mindi: Uses /usr/lib/ for varying files (constructs the whole rescue image there)
Date: Sun, 28 Nov 2010 16:05:31 +0100
Package: mindi
Version: 1:2.0.4-1
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 9.1.1 (FHS)

Hash: SHA1


This package uses /usr/lib/mindi as a temporary place for the preparation of
the rescue image, where it should use /var/lib/ instead. This is a violation
of the FHS (and makes it useless for people with /usr mounted as read-only).
