Re: use preseeding for one package

Thank you Eric,

I am already using cfengine2 and puppet :). But when I want to install postfix or phpmyadmin with cfengine a dialog screen flashes by which looks a bit weird. That's why I want to use preseeding (or something else) so the installer doesn't ask questions when a package is installed automatically.

Hi Chantal,

What are you trying to accomplish?  Preseeding is used for installation.  Are
you trying to install one package to an already installed system? Do you want
this to happen automatically?  If that's the case, you may want to look into
puppet, chef, bcfg2, or cfengine.  (I recommend puppet myself).
