       debconf-show - query the debconf database


        debconf-show packagename [...] [--db=dbname]
        debconf-show --listowners [--db=dbname]
        debconf-show --listdbs


       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.


           Specify the database to query. By default, debconf-show queries the main database.

           Lists all owners of questions in the database. Generally an owner is equivalent to a
           debian package name.

           Lists all available databases.
