Package: gcdb
Version: 1.1.5-2
Severity: normal

If during configuration the mysql database is declared to be on
"localhost", but is not in fact installed, the installation of gcdb
will fail mysteriously, without any information on what went wrong or
how to fix it.

root@matteo# apt-get install gcdb

dpkg: error processing gcdb (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The problem is with lines like:
                 /usr/bin/mysql -f --password=$mysql_pass < /etc/gcdb/mysql-create.sql >/dev/null 2>&1 

in /var/lib/dpkg/info/gcdb.postinst

The script will terminate if there is an error (set -e), but the error
message will be discarded.

One possible solution would be to direct the error output to a
temporary file and only display it if mysql produces an error.
