debconf: Bad file descriptor
Please redirect me to the correct list if this happens to be off-topic here.
A post installation script on a private debian package performs the following:
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda
mount -t proc none /mnt/hda/proc
chroot /mnt/hda /bin/bash -c 'apt-get install portmap'
Which finishes with,
Setting up portmap (5-26) ...
/usr/share/debconf/confmodule: line 42: 3: Bad file descriptor
dpkg: error processing portmap (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Line 42 is performing a 'set' command.
If I manually chroot and type 'apt-get install portmap' everything runs fine.
I am puzzled as to what the difference is between the manual or automated way.
Package details are:
All from mips etch.
