Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120566
prompt for user shell
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
Description of problem:
Firstboot prompts for new user accounts, but doesn't prompt for
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora Core after installation.
Firstboot prompts for new user accounts to be created, but doesn't
prompt for users' shells.
There should be a listbox containing all shells listed in /etc/shells
for specifying what shell to use for each account. Generally, all
options for useradd should be available.
We want to avoid showing options in firstboot that many users will
find confusing. The vast majority of computer users don't know what a
shell is. And most existing Linux users that know what a shell is use
bash. system-config-users is a more complete user management tool and
it allows a shell to be chosen with a list box.
