Description of problem:
During a first time installation of Linux 9 on a partitioned hard drive, the
user account creation failed. The error message came back as a "firstboot"
error. After continuing through the installation, I was not able to log in as
there were no accounts to log in to. As I cannot access any portion of the
installed product I am not able to return a component release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I cannot attach the file saved for the bug because it was saved to the Linux
root created in the install. I have been forced to use the Windows OS that I
created as a backup to submit this.
Could you not login as the 'root' user after seeing the firstboot failure? Every
install has at lease one user of 'root' with whatever password you set for it
during the install process.
Closing due to lack of information. Please reopen if you have more
