comments on cdebconf
Looks like lots of interesting things happened to d-i over Christmas.
Very good job everyone!
I tried out Dan's bogl interface. Looks cool.... once we have the
"select" handler we can do dpkg-reconfigure debconf with cdebconf :-)
one thing i saw was that if the bogl interface segfaults (for example on
an unknown question type) the screen doesn't get cleaned up properly. is
there a way to handle this more gracefully? (perhaps a simple SIGSEGV
handler will work)
i checked in a slang ui today; this will (for now) replace the ncurses
stuff. slang is more lib-reduction friendly (at least right now) and has
a cleaner interface. the slang ui doesn't handle multiselect and text
question types yet, but other things should work.
