NAME

debconf−show − query the debconf database

SYNOPSIS

 debconf−show packagename [...] [−−db=dbname]
 debconf−show −−listowners [−−db=dbname]
 debconf−show −−listdbs

DESCRIPTION

debconf-show lets you query the debconf database in different ways.

The most common use is "debconf-show packagename", which displays all items in the debconf database owned by a given package, and their current values. Questions that have been asked already are prefixed with an ’*’.

This can be useful as a debugging aid, and especially handy in bug reports involving a package’s use of debconf.

OPTIONS

−−db=dbname

Specify the database to query. By default, debconf-show queries the main database.

−−listowners

Lists all owners of questions in the database. Generally an owner is equivalent to a debian package name.

−−listdbs

Lists all available databases.
