Packages that use debconf for configuration prioritize the questions they might ask you. Only questions with a certain priority or higher are actually shown to you; all less important questions are skipped.

You can select the lowest priority of question you want to see:

  • ‘critical’ is for items that will probably break the system without user intervention.
  • ‘high’ is for items that don’t have reasonable defaults.
  • ‘medium’ is for normal items that have reasonable defaults.
  • ‘low’ is for trivial items that have defaults that will work in the vast majority of cases.
