Summary: Changing User Settings unsets Root Password
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Beta 5
Platform: 64bit
OS/Version: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: jvc.potter@xxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx
Found By: Community User


During installation, I defined a user and a separate root password. I then
changed the user account and found that the root password was no longer set.

During the initial installation, I defined the user "Test Account" with a
username of "test1". I unchecked "use password for system administrator" and
"auto login". On the next screen, I set the root password (to a different
password.)

When I got to the Installation Settings screen, the User Settings were listed
as:

User: Test Account (test1)
Root Password: set

I then clicked on the "User Settings" link and (eventually) was shown the user
definition screen. I changed the username to "test" and continued without
making any other changes.

When I got back to the Installation Settings screen, the User Settings were:

User: Test Account (test1)
Root Password: not set

Because I really DID want the root password to be set, I changed it with the
"Root Password" link. After that, the Root Password changed back to "set" and I
continued with the rest of the installation. (The user and root password were
as I expected them to be when done.)
