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.
