--- Begin Message --- Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

When installing Debian testing using the current netboot.tar.gz, the installer does not actually set up the user or its password, nor the root password, even though it says it does. When I try to log in after the installation, it says that the user I told the installer to set up does not exist and it doesn't accept the root password. In order to actually set up any of this, I have to boot Debian through single-user mode and set up the user(s) and the passwords (including root's) manually.

Thanks for your followups.

CD team, this bug apparently confirms that weekly builds of Debian
testing images are broken (maybe some of them only, I'm not sure). You
guys probably know more than me about this, but isn't there something
we could do to redirect our users to the D-I home page if they want to
install testing?
