debconf – Configure a .deb package¶
The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.
- This module requires the command line debconf tools.
- A number of questions have to be answered (depending on the package). Use ‘debconf-show <package>’ on any Debian or derivative with the package installed to see questions/settings available.
- Some distros will always record tasks involving the setting of passwords as changed. This is due to debconf-get-selections masking passwords.
