Description Joerg Hinz 2005-07-21 13:53:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.01 (Windows NT 5.0; U; en)

Description of problem:
If you make a kickstart installation and exclude the authconfig-paket (using "-
authconfig" in ks.cfg) it results in a MISSING /etc/shadow.

I didn't expected the authconfig-paket to be that important.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Exclude authconfig from Kickstart Installation (-authconfig in ks.cfg)
2. Install System
3. ls /etc/shadow -> file not found

Actual Results:  /etc/shadow is missing from the system.

Expected Results:  /etc/shadow should be there regardless of the authconfig-paket.

Additional info:

If the authconfig-paket is REQUIRED for the Redhat-Installation there should be 
some dependency, else the bug in the installation (anaconda) should be fixed 
which causes the missing of /etc/shadow.

This can't be solved in authconfig package itself. Reassigning.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-07-26 04:11:22 UTC
We use authconfig for setting things up like this.  So if you don't include
authconfig, it's not going to happen.
