Public bug reported:

I installed kubuntu-desktop, choose kdm as default window manager. after
installing i am not able to login as the "primary" user neither using
kdm nor using gdm. after trying to log in i find in auth.log:

Aug 23 23:30:32 holle-laptop kdm: :0[5186]: pam_unix(kdm:auth):
authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=:0 ruser= rhost=

I had to create a second user in order to be able to log in.

I'm using hardy, all packages up-to-date.
