Description Telsa Gwynne 2005-04-04 14:35:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and burn FC4t1
2. "linux text"
3. Pick Welsh as language (not sure this is relevant, but..)

Actual Results:  In the install, it asked me for a root password. 
It did not ask me to make non-root accounts. There was
no opportunity to do so.

Expected Results:  I should have been able to create non-root accounts. 

Additional info:

I didn't pick text in order to break stuff. I just had no 
mouse for the machine.

Bore da ;)

non-root users are created in  firstboot - which has a text mode also.  Did this
not run after install had completed and system restarted?

Comment 2 Telsa Gwynne 2005-04-04 16:20:02 UTC
pnawn da :) 

Of course, you're quite right, this must be the cause. I completely didn't
notice that I heard not a peep from firstboot at any stage. Although it 
-is- installed on the machine. 

Oh dear, and I have just entered all these other bugs which probably 
had the same cause...

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-07-08 17:38:42 UTC
Firstboot never ran at all?  What package selections did you make when you
installed?  In particular, did you choose some sort of lightweight setup without
X?  It still runs for me even with no mouse, so I don't believe that is the problem.
