Description Craig Leres 2001-03-23 01:30:00 UTC
The "change root password" option does not revert the tty to cooked before invoking /usr/bin/passwd. How-To-Repeat: Install a 4.3-BETA2 beta system. When sysinstall asks if you want to make any last minute changes, select "yes" and then try to change the root password. Notice that the output from /usr/bin/passwd is missing carriage returns and that you must use ^J to terminate lines. Reboot and notice that you can't login using the password you just entered...

Responsible Changed From-To: freebsd-bugs->jkh Jordan messes with sysinstall, it would seem..

State Changed From-To: open->closed I cannot reproduce this - sysinstall does indeed revert the tty.
