##Overview

Configures Debian/Ubuntu packages using debconf preseed files and reconfigures them when the preseed files are modified.

##Module Description

The debconf_package module adds a type that installs and configures a Debian/Ubuntu package using a debconf preseed file and executes dpkg-reconfigure when the preseed file is updated.

##Setup

The best way to install this module is by executing the following command on your puppet master or local Puppet install:

$ puppet module install [--modulepath <path>] rlenglet/debconf_package

The above command also includes the optional argument to specify your puppet master's modulepath as the location to install the module.

###What debconf_package affects

  • Debian packages.
  • Debian debconf preseed selections.

###Beginning with debconf_package

The ::debconf_package type is a simplified version of the standard package type, which optionally allows specifying debconf selections in the content or source attribute.

Specify the optional ensure and content or source attributes:

debconf_package { openssh-server:
  ensure => present,
  content => 'openssh-server	ssh/use_old_init_script	boolean	true
openssh-server	ssh/disable_cr_auth	boolean	false
'
}

##Usage

###Defined Type: debconf_package

#####source

The file to use as source for the debconf preseed file. Mutually exclusive with content.

#####content
