Seems to work. However, for some reason it wont install with dpkg from
slink. I tried to install it using dpkg --root /potato -i package.deb,
but dpkg couldn't find the postinst script.

However, potato dpkg works fine.

Also, debconf-tiny produces a warning that it cannot initialize the
text mode interface, so it would use dialog instead. Strange, for some
reason I thought dialog *was* the default.

How do I force a package to reconfigure using debconf-tiny?
dpkg-reconfigure doesn't seem to exist :-(
