Description of problem:
This is not really a bug with setools package. It's an installer bug
related to selinux. I'm not too familiar with red hat, so please bear
with me.

I selected the default selinux config while installing. Then,
everything finished, and I think I've created a user account after the
final steps when booting the first time. However, I can't login. There
is a homedir but no password entry. Then, I try to use useradd command
which says it cannot write to the password file.

I turn off selinux and after reboot I'm able to add a user account.

Expected: whatever I choose, the user addition stuff must work after



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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC/3, selecting selinux options (default)
2. When booting first time, enter information for a user account
3. Try to login with that account

Actual Results:  I couldn't login. No authentication information created.

Expected Results:  I should have been able to login.

We are not seeing this here.  Could you attach any AVC messages that
show up in your /var/log/messages file?

Are you installing on a different type of file system?  Where is your
home directory located?
