Description of problem:
F18 Alpha TC5 KDE Spin, in the installation process, Anaconda ask for user and password, but no for root password, so, after the installation the root user exist, but without password, then, i type su - and i'm root without any pass
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F18 TC5 KDE Spin i686 Live CD
Steps to Reproduce:
Did you create a user during firstboot or during some other post-installation process?

Yes, a normal user. After the first reboot, the firstboot ask me for a user, name and password, but not for root user.
The work around that i uses, is passwd logged as root, and done, the root user that yes exist, have a password no NULL.
We should perhaps change firstboot to make sure the sudo line written out requires a password. However, the rest is working as planned.
There is Password spoke visible on the main hub screen. Did you entered and leaved the screen or did you missed is completely?

Fixed with the new LiveCD Fedora 18 KDE Alpha RC3.
