debconf-show - query the debconf database
debconf-show packagename [...] [--db=dbname]
debconf-show --listowners [--db=dbname]
lets you query the debconf database in different ways.
The most common use is "debconf-show packagename", which displays all
items in the debconf database owned by a given package, and their current
values. Questions that have been asked already are prefixed with an '*'.
This can be useful as a debugging aid, and especially handy in bug reports
involving a package's use of debconf.
- Specify the database to query. By default, debconf-show
queries the main database.
- Lists all owners of questions in the database. Generally an
owner is equivalent to a debian package name.
- Lists all available databases.
