Description Joachim Backes 2012-09-06 08:47:02 EDT
Description of problem:
If I do a F18/Alpha/TC6 minimal install, there is no root password requested, and no firstboot is running afterwards if booting the installed for the first time, so I can't login into the fresh installed system. I have to run the install CD/DVD in rescue mode for setting a root pwd.

We're still debating the best way to deal with this for the no-firstboot case, but yeah something will need to be done.
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2012-09-06 18:39:33 EDT
We can probably check via a thread if firstboot is in the payload and if not, make the password spoke incomplete. It might be dodgy but worth a try.  Not going to do this until after alpha though.
