Re: debconf wonky

Apologies for not replying to the thread; I didn't realise it was of
interest to me until I found it in the archives, by which time I'd
deleted it.

Anyway, in case anyone else is struggling with this:

Taking hints from Joey Hess, I did something like:

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
cp xserver-xfree86.templates xserver-xfree86.templates.old
sed s/^_// xserver-xfree86.templates.old > xserver-xfree86.templates

(I actually did that sed transformation to
/var/cache/debconf/templates.dat first; it probably wasn't necessary)

And it worked.

Thanks Joey, Marcelo, Antony.
