Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57221
initscripts and sulogin do not accept password correctly
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:24:41 EDT
Description of Problem:
With the following line in /etc/inittab
sulogin does not correctly accept the input passwords or CTRL-D when init 1
or init S are invoked. From this point on, the only way to do anything
usable is to reboot and I haven't checked to see if it will take a password
when booting into single user mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
place above line in inittab, goto userlevel 1 or S, problem should be
Steps to Reproduce:
1. init 1
2. sulogin then prompts for password
3. declares any input password to be invalid, does not accept CTRL-D
declares password invalid, re-prompts. If you put a space infront of your
password it will dump you out to a useless shell prompt.
Expected to log in single user mode after being prompted for root password
not at the moment...
This should be fixed with the 2.11f-17 util-linux update.
