Description jvpurcel 2000-01-01 01:52:13 UTC
If I do in a ks.cfg file

rootpw rootpw --iscrypted xxcryptpwxx

The install throws an error:

File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/", line 19, in doRootPw

installClass.doRootPw(self, extra[0], isCrypted = isCrypted)
IndexError: list index out of range

The documentation, and mkkickstart command both appear to support that
	syntax--quoted variations give the same error.

Comment 1 Jay Turner 2000-02-14 16:46:59 UTC
This bug is fixed in the latest installer (available in beta).  Do note that the
correct command in ks.cfg should be "rootpw --iscrypted xxxxx"  In the posting
above, you have 2 "rootpw"s
