Description Chris Stewart 2003-10-30 19:04:36 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no way to change the Kerberos information after the initial reboot.  
If this information is entered incorrectly, you can't login and also cannot 
change the Kerberos information.  This leaves the user locked out of their 
system and forces a re-install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Test 3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install system.
2. Enter invalid Kerberos information.
3. Reboot.
4. Attempt to login.
Actual results:
Failed login.

Expected results:
Messaging saying Kerberos information is incorrect and a chance to change it.

This isn't a grub bug, but.

You can boot single user and rerun authconfig to change your login
information if you set it up incorrectly and are then unable to login
as root.

Comment 2 Chris Stewart 2003-10-31 04:46:32 UTC
Sorry about the grub location, I wasn't sure where to put it.

Shouldn't this be easier though?  All you need to do is inform the 
user the given information is incorrect and let them enter it again 
or remove it.
