Re: Debconf Trouble [SOLVED]


just wanted to drop a note, that i don't help anymore. Because i just
figured my mistaken myself. It's absolutely logical why this does
happen. For others who might have similar problems in the future:

The problem is: I do db_input a question and try to use the answere of
it just a line later. The problem is: After asking the question there
has been no db_go, yet. Therefore the question has not yet been asked at
this stage and value is default.

So remember:
If you want to use values you ask the user for in your config scripts:
Do not try to use values *before* you have done a db_go!
