For example if I use the db-test-mysql-2.0 example application (from /usr/share/doc/dbconfig-common/examples), the installation fails with the error message : ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' However if i try to install the same package (db-test-mysql) after first boot, it works perfectly (creates database and pouplates it). This makes sense since before first boot the mysql server is not running. I've even tried things like "in-target /etc/init.d/mysql start", but this hangs the installer.
Perhaps make your package predepend (instead of depend) on mysql-server, to ensure mysql-server is up and running before executing packaging scripts of your package.
