Description Craig Leres freebsd_committer 2001-03-23 01:30:00 UTC
The "change root password" option does not revert the tty to cooked
before invoking /usr/bin/passwd.

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...

Jordan messes with sysinstall, it would seem..

I cannot reproduce this - sysinstall does indeed revert the tty.
