screenshot F19b RC4, showing the [not] created additional 'root' user
Description of problem:
While installing, one can specify the username 'root' as a valid username in
the 'User Creation' screen.
I setup 'root01' as the root password in 'Root Password' screen and
then i setup and user 'root' with 'root13' pas the password in 'User Creation'
Anaconda does report that the user was created, as shown in the screenshot.
The user was not created. (Of course).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F19b RC4 (19.30-1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup anaconda and start installing.
2. Setup root password
3. Create a 'root' user
'root' username is accepted, reported as created.
It is neither created nor reported as having not being created nor
'root' as an username in 'User Creation' screen should be rejected, since
it is an invalid username for that screen.
Additional info (anaconda.log):
15:03:45,437 INFO anaconda: Creating users
15:03:45,438 INFO anaconda: created new libuser.conf at /tmp/libuser.GaK0wC with instPath="/mnt/sysimage"
15:03:45,735 ERR anaconda: User root already exists, not creating.
