fai-debconf - set debconf values using classes

fai-debconf(1) fai-debconf(1)

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 this directory are read. The files must have the format of debconf-get-selections(1). All this 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 package which is installed and for which some debconf data was set.
 

OPTIONS

-h
Show help, version and summary of options.
-s
Skip reconfiguration of packages. Only set values in debconf database.
-v
Create verbose output.
-d
Add additional debugging output. Implies the -v option.
-f
Run dpkg-reconfigure for all packages FAI has information on, not only for those whose database entries were modified.
