reassign 604081 user-setup retitle 604081 Does not show password mismatch when first entered root password is empty thanks Quoting Daniel Pocock (firstname.lastname@example.org): > Package: installation-reports > > Installing amd64 as a domU in xen > > At the first prompt for root password, just hit enter > > At the second prompt, type a password > > No password-mismatch error is displayed, installer proceeds to > setting up a user account > > Once rebooted, root login impossible using blank password or the > `repeat' password > > Mount the root fs (e.g. from dom0 or another OS), inspect /etc/shadow: > > root:!:14932:0:99999:7::: When the root password is empty, root account is disabled. This is what the first template says. Still, one can understand that entering the pwd empty, then setting something in the confirmation is user error and the user should have a chance to correct it. And we should anyway to give the false impression that a root password will be set. Reassigning to user-setup as this bug belongs to that package. Thanks for pointing it.
