No "Pop up" questions while installing debian 7

    Hello again,

    I'm following this howto with a fresh install of debian 7.

    Since this is a dedicated server, I've no idea what base packages were chosen during this part for example :


    Now, when continuing in the howto, it's written that I should have a "pop up" screen where questions are asked (the root password for mysql for exemple). Sadly on this installation I do not get those "pop up" screens. So I've to change the conf files manually after the installation is complete.

    Do you guys have any idea what I should do to have those pop ups back ?

    Ok what's weird is that this part gives a pop up :

    dpkg-reconfigure dash

    (where I should answer no)

    But this part finishes without asking anything :

    apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d dovecot-mysql dovecot-sieve sudo

    Those "popups" are not always displayed. If your server was preconfigured with postfix already installed, it won't appear.

    Mmh yeah I was thinking something like that.

    Weird, this means mysql was installed by default, that's not exactly a "light" and "customizable" installation.

    Anyway everything seems to work, so I won't have to complain.

    Thanks anyway.
