Description of problem:
If you make a kickstart installation and exclude the authconfig-paket (using "-
authconfig" in ks.cfg) it results in a MISSING /etc/shadow.
I didn't expected the authconfig-paket to be that important.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Exclude authconfig from Kickstart Installation (-authconfig in ks.cfg)
2. Install System
3. ls /etc/shadow -> file not found
Actual Results: /etc/shadow is missing from the system.
Expected Results: /etc/shadow should be there regardless of the authconfig-paket.
If the authconfig-paket is REQUIRED for the Redhat-Installation there should be
some dependency, else the bug in the installation (anaconda) should be fixed
which causes the missing of /etc/shadow.
This can't be solved in authconfig package itself. Reassigning.
We use authconfig for setting things up like this. So if you don't include
authconfig, it's not going to happen.
