Description Peter F. Patel-Schneider 2008-09-25 18:36:27 EDT
Description of problem:

With the inability to log in to root, not creating a user in firstboot results in a not very useful system.

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

F10Beta as of 24 September

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run firstbot
2.Skip user creation
3.Try to log in
Actual results:
No useful accounts.

Expected results:
It would be nice to be able to log into root in this case.

Additional info:
The reason that I skip creating a user is to set up my account with a specific UID.  It would be even nicer to be able to specify a UID during firstboot. At a minimum proceeding with no usable accounts should be forbidden
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-09-25 19:10:33 EDT
This will be fixed for after the beta.
