Description Kamil Páral 2012-10-02 11:52:50 UTC
Description of problem:
I did a minimal install from PXE. There was an option to set root password during the installation. I did not use it. After reboot, the system lacks root password.

I believe the installation should not end until a root password is provided, if it is a minimal install. It should not allow to reboot sooner.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.8

How reproducible:
