NAME¶fai-debconf - set debconf values using classes
SYNOPSIS¶fai-debconf [OPTION] DIRECTORY
DESCRIPTION¶This command is only called internally by FAI and not directly by the user.
fai-debconf reads files in DIRECTORY which are also a defined class. If the name of the class is a directory, all files in the directory are read. The files must have the format of debconf-get-selections(1). All the input is used to call debconf-set-selections(1). This is done in the chroot environment if the variable $ROOTCMD is set. After setting the debconf values, dpkg-reconfigure(8) is called for every installed package and for which some debconf data was set.
- Show help, version and summary of options.
- Skip reconfiguration of packages. Only set values in debconf database.
- Create verbose output.
- Add additional debugging output. Implies the -v option.
- Run dpkg-reconfigure for all packages FAI has information on, not only for those whose database entries were modified.
