Package: debian-installer
Version: i386 bc binary-1 20100201-16:44 netinst
Severity: normal

Fresh install from the netinst image, graphical expert install, KDE option.
Reproduced this twice:

The installer asks for the root password, but does not set it.

The installer asks to create a user. User info is provided, including password,
but the user is not created.

Shadow passwords are enabled. Root login is enabled.

Upon booting to a rescue shell, the password field in /etc/shadow is set to
'x' so root is unable to log in.

Further examination of /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow indicate that the regular
user was not created.

When I edited /etc/shadow to remove the 'x' in the password field for root
I was able to log into the console without a password (as expected). I was
able to set a password for root and create the regular user at UID 1000.

I was too unable to reproduce this problem with the d-i beta1 image

I'm therefore closing this bug. Unless someone provides an
installation log there is no way to debug this.

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
