Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2019-03-25 19:49:00 UTC
If the user doesn't create an account during the installer and instead creates one in gnome-initial-setup, sometimes following gnome-initial-setup the login screen will show instead of the logged in user.

This got fixed upstream here:


Would be good to get this fixed in 8.1 as well.

I just installed RHEL-8.3.0-20200825.0 and you can't install unless you setup an initial user account.
