Newbie needs help with postinst scripting
I want to make a debain package for a collection of perl and php scripts
for my company. They will not go into public.
In my case I need a postinst script that asks the user for the local MySQL
server password and then puts the command string according to that (if
empty, then no -p argument). I'd like to have this nice user interface that
some packages have ( I assume, it uses 'dialog'... ?).
However, I don't know how to do that in the script (normal shell script)
and I don't find any documentation. Can anyone help me or point me to some
documentation on how to set variables through a user interface with a
Thanx for help.
