Description Jeremy Katz 2007-08-23 15:37:21 EDT
If you have an account with a disabled password (like the live CDs do, passwd -d
is run), you now get prompted for the password when logging in both via gdm and
login.  This is a change from the F7 behavior and pretty undesireable from the
point of view of making the logins obvious with the live images.
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2007-08-23 17:17:55 EDT
It's actually caused by a change in selinux policy. You can verify that in
permissive mode you won't be prompted. But it will have to be solved in pam_unix
somehow.
