Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78526
ver 2.3.3-3 improperly prompts for root passwd on upgrade
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Title says it all
In setting up a minimal _upgrade_ ks.cfg file, the logic improperly prompts for
a root password. By definition, the root password is already set in an upgrade
Solution: omit this logic branch when upgrade is selected.

sample which provoked the error state
Should be fixed in redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.4-1, which should appear in
Rawhide in the next day or so. The message about the root password will no
longer appear if you're doing an upgrade. However, the line will still be
written to the file. Anaconda expects certain lines to be there, although they
are ignored in the upgrade case. At least, that's what katzj tells me.
However, I make no claims about the stablility of this version. I have added
lots of new code to handle opening existing kickstart files and also handling
multiple network devices. This code is untested and probably has bugs. Feel
free to check it out, though.
Thanks for your report.
