I successfully installed 6.0b2 on my laptop (Acer Aspire 3680); however, I was unable to log in, either as root or as normal user. Booting into a live environment, mounting my HDD partitions, and chrooting in showed that the user account I had supposedly created during install had not, in fact, been generated. However, /etc/shadow clearly showed that the root user has a password and is not locked; nonetheless, the password evidently is not the correct one, as I cannot log in as root either.
Is this a known bug, or rather, known bugs? Is it possible to make the graphical installer use the passwords I want and create the user accounts I want, or do I have to use the text installer? Or is there no solution, i.e. this is what I get for using a beta?
