Cisco VPN client Debian problems

After installing CISCO VPN Client on my Debian Wheezy box I started having problems with updating the system . The problem is caused because CISCO VPN Client assumes that Debian has installed by default chkconfig which is not installed by default. Uninstalling the client and then installing it back and installing chkconfig will fix only the problem when your CISCO VPN Client GUI flickers on the screen for a moment, but vanishes before you can see the error. To fix the problem where you can’t update your system or install any packages all you have to do is to edit vpnagentd_init located in /etc/init.d/vpnagentd_init

root@valkyrie:~# vim /etc/init.d/vpnagentd_init

and add :

# Provides: vpnagentd_init
# Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog
# Required-Stop: $remote_fs $syslog
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start Cisco vpn agent daemon at boot time
