Description Alexandre Oliva 2003-02-18 00:12:11 UTC
I'm pretty sure this had been filed before, but I couldn't find any open bugs on this, so I'm assuming it was unintentionally closed as WONTFIX for some earlier release and posting it again. A rootpw --iscrypted line in a kickstart file is ignored if the kickstart install is interactive. I believe the reason has to do with the encrypted password not being suitable for use in the interactive password form, but there must be a way to preserve it so as to not require the password to be entered by hand.
