How to get proxy of installation mirror?
After installation, I want to configure the proxy settings for all the
programs I use regurarly (subversion, wget, firefox, ...) automatically
via a script. The quesstion is, how do I get this information from
debian-installer? The only method I could find was:
# debconf-get-selections --installer |grep proxy
but this command outputs totally unrelated lines:
# FTP proxy information (blank for none):
choose-mirror-bin mirror/ftp/proxy string
choose-mirror-bin mirror/http/proxy string http://192.168.1.12:81
d-i mirror/http/proxy string http://192.168.1.12:81
Thus I think parsing this would be very unreliable. What I am looking
for is something like:
# debconf-foobar --installer d-i mirror/http/proxy
or something. Any ideas how to retrieve specific settings from d-i?
