On Wheezy the following script works fine:
debconf-copydb configdb newbackup --config=Name:newbackup --config=Driver:File \
On Jessie/Testing I get the following error:
Use of uninitialized value $directory in -d at \
/usr/share/perl5/Debconf/DbDriver/File.pm line 43.
Use of uninitialized value $directory in concatenation (.) or string at \
/usr/share/perl5/Debconf/DbDriver/File.pm line 44.
debconf: DbDriver "newbackup": mkdir :No such file or directory
Comparing /usr/share/perl5/debconf/DbDriver/File.pm of Wheezy with the same
file in Jessie shows that the file is missing some lines between line 40 and 44.
I copied File.pm from Wheezy to my Jessie installation and low and behold -
the debconf backup script works again.
Maybe this can make it still into Jessie while it's frozen.
Thank you for your time
