Help using db_register


 This message is related to
http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2011/02/msg00279.html (Pre-seed
a bunch of packages from a debian package). (Excuse the obvious
mistakes in grammar and spelling :) )

I finally thought of using db_register because using db_set as is from
the "parent" package gave a XXX/YYY does not exist error message.

I found http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.devel.mentors/22127,
which roughly explains how to use this command.

But when i try (for example)

db_register deepofix-apache2-config deepofix-apache2-config/apache2-enabled
I get -- RET='10 No such template, "deepofix-apache2-config" --

also, when i try

db_register deepofix-apache2-config/apache2-enabled
I get -- RET='20 Incorrect number of arguments' --

I want to do the shell equivalent of

               echo "deepofix-apache2-config
deepofix-apache2-config/apache2_enabled boolean true"

        ) | debconf-set-selections

from the script of a debian package.
