Comment: -p/-P needs abs path


  • Question ids may change between releases; it is strongly recommended that you (re)generate a  preseed file for each release.
  • Some questions can be asked repeatedly with different dynamic arguments, but it is only possibly to  preseed one answer for all these invocations.
    For example, question 0b55, "OK to leave the symbolic link $destination unchanged?" may be asked multiple times for different values of '$destination'. The preseed file can only provide one answer which is used for all of them.
  • Preseeded answers can at this time not contain the double quote character.
  • The paths given for -P  and -p  must be absolute ones, ie. /some/directory/filename.
