NAME

fai−debconf − set debconf values using classes

SYNOPSIS

fai−debconf [OPTION] DIRECTORY

DESCRIPTION

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.
