Some known problems and debugging hints
=======================================

Debugging dictionaries-common first configuration from debian-installer
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want to debug dictionaries-common behavior during its first
pre-configuration when running debian-installer, you need to run
debian-installer in expert mode. Open a shell and near the top of

   /var/lib/dpkg/info/pkgsel.postinst

add

   export DICT_COMMON_DEBUG=1

This way, you should get debugging info in the syslog for the installation.

debconf question asked on every upgrade
---------------------------------------
If everytime you upgrade any wordlist or ispell dictionary are asked
about preferred language (and not only at most the first time you
installed it) there is a problem, because that is not what current
code should do.

This has been noticed to happen due to debconf database corruption,

  http://bugs.debian.org/335612

usually caused by nearly full /var partitions. Please read below
section "Problems installing or removing a wordlist/ispell dictionary"
about how to work around this.

Problems installing or removing a wordlist/ispell dictionary
----------------------------------------------
Something like
---
# dpkg --purge wbritish
(Reading database ... 111027 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing wbritish ...
Can't call method "choices" on an undefined value at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Question.pm line 85, <GEN0> line 4.
dpkg: error processing wbritish (--purge):
 subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 29
Errors were encountered while processing:
 wbritish
---
is usually related to debconf type 1 db corruption, see e.g.,

  http://bugs.debian.org/198297

or pages for bug reports 224400, 247849, 255193, 282587, 284287, 297534.

Please take a look at those bug reports to check whether the problem is
actually the same, and see if you can provide more information about
the problem before proceeding further. As a side note, it has been
pointed out that there is a high probability of this problem being related
to a nearly full /var partition.

After that, the suggested fix is, quoting Joey Hess message in above bug page

> By purging and reinstalling the package, you only fixed the entries for
> that package. I suggest you run /usr/share/debconf/fix_db.pl as root,
> which will delete all the orphaned questions. You may end up having to
> repeat your answers to some debconf questions during future upgrades,
> but that's a small price to pay for a consistent debconf database.
