I have two questions concerning debconf:
1) I have created a <packagename>.config and a <packagename>.templates
file according to the debconf user's guide by Joey Hess. If I execute
the .config file, the expected screen (it's a note) is shown, everything
is OK. I have also inserted dh_installdebconf in the rules file.
Now I hoped the Debian Magic would do all the tricks to show my screen
while installing, but nothing happened.
So, do I need to call the .config file "by hand"? And if yes: where? In
the postinst? Or somewhere else?
2) lintian complains about not having sourced the debconf library in
postinst. I have (following the user's guide) done this in the .config
file, before calling the actual debconf functions.
Which one is considered better?
TIA and best regards
