[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#343683: nagios-mysql: New install scripts do not reask for the passwords when running dpkg-reconfigure

Package: nagios-mysql
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-12
Severity: normal


I let dbconfig-commong handle the MySQL configuration, but made a mistake
when entering the nagios database's password. I ran dpkg-reconfigure, but
it never reasks for the database password again, so I can't correct the

In fact, I even have to select 'retry' after the config failure to make the
script ask me for the MySQL main password again, which it doesn't do on the
first run.
