Linux 2.6 - man page for dpkg-preconfigure (linux section 8)

DPKG-PRECONFIGURE(8)			     Debconf			     DPKG-PRECONFIGURE(8)

NAME
       dpkg-preconfigure - let packages ask questions prior to their installation

SYNOPSIS
	dpkg-preconfigure [options] package.deb

	dpkg-preconfigure --apt

DESCRIPTION
       dpkg-preconfigure lets packages ask questions before they are installed.  It operates on a
       set of debian packages, and all packages that use debconf will have their config script
       run so they can examine the system and ask questions.

OPTIONS
       -ftype, --frontend=type
	   Select the frontend to use.

       -pvalue, --priority=value
	   Set the lowest priority of questions you are interested in. Any questions with a
	   priority below the selected priority will be ignored and their default answers will be
	   used.

       --terse
	   Enables terse output mode. This affects only some frontends.

       --apt
	   Run in apt mode. It will expect to read a set of package filenames from stdin, rather
	   than getting them as parameters. Typically this is used to make apt run dpkg-
	   preconfigure on all packages before they are installed.  To do this, add something
	   like this to /etc/apt/apt.conf:

	    // Pre-configure all packages before
	    // they are installed.
	    DPkg::Pre-Install-Pkgs {
		   "dpkg-preconfigure --apt --priority=low";
	    };

       -h, --help
	   Display usage help.
