Statement of Impact:

Users upgrading bacula from intrepid will get this wanring message:

bconfig-common: writing config to /etc/dbconfig-common/bacula-director-mysql.conf
*** WARNING: ucf was run from a maintainer script that uses debconf, but
             the script did not pass --debconf-ok to ucf. The maintainer
             script should be fixed to not stop debconf before calling ucf,
             and pass it this parameter. For now, ucf will revert to using
             old-style, non-debconf prompting. Ugh!

The fix has been applied in the upstream source and has been fixed for
Karmic. You can look at the fix at:


I have attached the debdiff which fixes this problem in Karmic.

How to Reproduce:

1. Install bacula from intrepid.
2. Upgrade to Jaunty.

The fix is a one liner and there should be no impact.

If you have any questions please let me know.
