package: debconf,keyboard-configuration severity: serious x-debbugs-cc: email@example.com
Hi, first of all: I'm at lost where this really comes from, as this happened the first time on December 16th (and since then I saw and aborted it daily) and neither debconf nor keyboard-configuration have been uploaded since them. I see this in two jenkins jobs which have been unchanged since months: https://jenkins.debian.net/view/reproducible/job/reproducible_setup_schroot_unstable_diffoscope_amd64_jenkins https://jenkins.debian.net/view/reproducible/job/reproducible_setup_schroot_unstable_diffoscope_amd64_profitbricks3/ Which do "apt-get install -y --install-recommends diffoscope" in sid, which now fails like this: ... Setting up keyboard-configuration (1.134) ... debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog debconf: (Dialog frontend will not work on a dumb terminal, an emacs shell buffer, or without a controlling terminal.) debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline Configuring keyboard-configuration ---------------------------------- Please select the layout matching the keyboard for this machine. 1.

We discussed this on #debian-qa: <h01ger> so why do we see this in sid now: https://jenkins.debian.net/view/reproducible/job/reproducible_setup_schroot_unstable_diffoscope_amd64_profitbricks3/71/console (scroll down) <ntyni> could be something to do with some of the debconf frontends being uninstallable but I can't really see why that would make it interactive <ntyni> is it using DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive ? <h01ger> ntyni: yes. the jenkins code used here hasnt changed at all. <ntyni> h01ger: I'm guessing DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive never took effect for some reason and the Dialog frontend is now falling back to a different frontend (Readline) that tries harder to ask its questions even without a real terminal/stdin <h01ger> hm <ntyni> h01ger: I wouldn't expect those messages about Dialog and Readline frontends at all if DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive was in effect * h01ger nods <ntyni> h01ger: but I'm not 100% positive on that <h01ger> https://jenkins.debian.net/job/reproducible_setup_schroot_unstable_diffoscope_amd64_jenkins/lastBuild/console weirly enough has a different frontend it seems any ideas anyone? cheers, Holger
