Description Cipriano Groenendal 2003-08-13 10:08:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
While building my own Redhat install CD, I explicitly removed the authconfig 
rpm in my kickstart config.
After booting the installled machine, I then noticed that shadow passwords were 
not enabled, eventhough I had enabled this from within the kickstart config.
Adding authconfig to the kickstart.cfg and reinstalling fixed this.

-- snap Kickstart config --
rootpw --iscrypted $1$........
authconfig --enablemd5 --enableshadow
timezone --utc Europe/Amsterdam
-- /snap Kickstart config --

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove authconfg with a kickstart.cfg
2. install
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2003-08-13 12:06:00 EDT
Authconfig is required to be installed as we use it in the post-install to set
authentification options.
