Bug#67771: Modconf fails to start
I didn't bother with the entire dump, since it's long, and I figured out
what's wrong from the end of the output. Whiptail is trying to load up
libnewt.so.0.25 for some strange reason. Here's a quick summary:
whiptail: error in loading shared libraries: libnewt.so.0.25: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
For informational purposes, here's the output from dpkg about what
version of each is installed.
ii whiptail 0.50-7 Displays user-friendly dialog boxes
ii libnewt0 0.50-7 Not Erik's Windowing Toolkit - text
One quick re-install of whiptail later (dpkg -i whiptail...) and modconf
works fine now.
