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.
