Description Daniel Mach 2009-01-30 09:39:34 EST
/etc/shadow is created by anaconda during installation.

When an installation is done without anaconda (yum installation to chroot), this file is not created.

Can you create /etc/shadow during the build process and include it as %config(noreplace)?

You can use pwconv (shadow-utils) for that.

Adding pvrabec to CC ... additionally - what about /etc/gshadow?
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2009-02-26 07:40:04 EST
/etc/shadow and /etc/gshadow now generated at build time - built as setup-2.8.1-1.fc11, closing RAWHIDE
