I like to use the aptitude provider to install packages -- all my
systems are Debian and it's consistent with what I use manually.
However, the aptitude provider seems to pass the '-y' option to
aptitude, which causes aptitude to simply assume yes for all prompts. I
understand that this might be necessary to avoid puppet hanging due to
the subprocess prompting, but in some cases aptitude can prompt because
of conflicts. In the case of conflicts, I would want puppet to just
return an error and let me handle the situation manually. Because
sometimes aptitude's first solution to a conflict is very suboptimal.
Does anyone know how I can configure this?
