Preseeding the Debian Installer
By Brian Pitts
Date: April 16th, 2009
Brian presented on his experience with preseeding the Debian installer. He has used this while preparing hundreds of laptops with Free IT Athens.
The Debian installer is able to read answers to virtually any question it asks from a preseed configuration file. He detailed how to create the file, including how to install a package interactively and then to read your answers from the debconf database. Various methods were demonstrated for starting the installer and specifying the preseed file.
