I'm seeing this too, how do we debug this, are there initial-setup logs anywhere ?

Comment 2 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-06-13 13:58:19 UTC
If there was no user created in the Anaconda, the user defined in the I-S should be created. For the other things there are bugs, that the newly set values hide themselves as the values from the installation phase and thus are not applied. Patch fixing these issues has been sent to anaconda-patches.

Comment 3 Dennis Gilmore 2013-06-17 16:23:02 UTC
the kickstart doesn't have defined a timezone, user or root password. they all need to be set in initial-setup. ive set all in inital setup and none of the settings are applied.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2013-06-17 19:01:30 UTC
Discussed at 2013-06-17 freeze exception review meeting: . Accepted as a freeze exception issue: this causes considerable inconvenience for the (non-primary) ARM arch pre-built graphical images.
