I am installing F12 via kickstart. I want to set up my userid, and
after a bit of reading figured out I needed to add the user command.
On reading https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart I figured
out I needed:
user --name=me --gecos="me myself" --password=nothingspecial
But the install gave me an error on the --gecos option, saying it was an
invalid option. So I removed it to get the install going, I can add the
name later. But what gives, here. I used gecos back in the late 70s to
mid-80s. Gecos 4 and 6 when I worked at AMC! Did a lot with the
Codesyl database on online transaction processor....
Anyway, yeah, GECOS. My cuz worked for them too. So what is the format
for --gecos when you want a space in the name field. And where are the
GECOS fields described?
