Always asks for root password

Bug #48038 reported by Jeff Waugh on 2006-06-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kickseed (Ubuntu)

shadow (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Specifying rootpw --disabled doesn't work:

<Kamion> oh, crap, kickseed bug
<Kamion> d-i passwd/root-login false
<Kamion> that should be 'd-i passwd/root-login boolean false'
<Kamion> workaround: add 'preseed passwd/root-login boolean false' to your kickstart file

Verified that this workaround works. :-)

I don't think this has anything to do with shadow. Rejecting that task.
