First time user of Garuda, although I've been on/off the linux scene for over a decade now. I was wondering if I might have come across a bug in Konsole and wanted to know your thoughts as to whether I should log a bug with Konsole/Garuda.
I just set up a new system, and although I managed to correctly input the root password one time, I was unable to reproduce it during the post installation wizard in konsole. I tried three times, and it did not work, so I opened a new konsole instance and ran
sudo passwd root
to try out possible typo variations on my password. I ran out of my three attempts, and when I pushed the up arrow and ran the command again, it ran:
sudo passwd root"thisisnotmypassword"
I felt this was very unusual behavour. A fish notification also appeared saying
Failed (1) after 5m 2s ~/ sudo passwd root"thisisnotmypassword"
(Edit: Now I realise it's probably because I exited it by pressing enter three times, and since rootpluspassword is not a user, it failed.)
I haven't been able to reproduce this behaviour after it happened the first time. Do you think this is worth pursuing?
I'm going to do a clean install soon because I was unable to guess my root password typo, so if you do think this is worth reporting, please let me know what I should retrieve from the system e.g. systemlogs to shed further light on this issue.
I have linked my results for inxi -Fxxxza to this post in a pastebin.
Edit: I am running:
- Konsole v21.04.3
- KDE Frameworks 5.84.0
- Qt 5.15.2 (built against 5.15.20)
