1.65. firstboot

Updated firstboot packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The firstboot utility runs after installation. It guides the user through a series of steps that allows for easier configuration of the machine.
Bug Fixes
Previously, no screen was provided to change the root password in firstboot. Due to this lack, users had to change the settings of system-config-users to the root password within the Advanced window of firstboot's create user screen. This update adds a module to change the root password. Now, users can view a set the root password in firstboot, if run with the option "the --reconfig".
Previously, users could not skip the user creation screen. Due to this lack, users had to create a user account with an UID number above or equal to 500 to continue to the next step of the first boot process. With this update, the check for valid user accounts in the system checks whether a user account with a valid login shell is present and not only user accounts with an UID number above or equal to 500. If there's no such user account present firstboot shows a warning, but allows the user to go to the next step. Now, users can skip the user creation part of firstboot.
Previously, the firstboot utility did not run automatically after installation on IBM's System/390 architecture. Due to this issue, users had to run firstboot manually. This update adds automatic execution. Now, the firstboot utility runs automatically when the root user logs in to the system for the first time with a capable terminal.
All firstboot users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and adds this enhancement.
