I'm finally trying to work out how to use debconf, and I'm having some
problems with a trivial test case. I have the following files:
-- foo.templates --
Description: Is this a test question?
Select "true" if this is only a test.
-- foo.config --
db_input high test/foo
When I run this as root, it runs and exits without generating any output
or messages. If, however, I run it as myself, I get the expected: a dialog
with the test message and the Yes/No buttons. Selecting either, of course,
causes the script to abort with a 'permission denied' error. What am I doing
