OS Name/Version: ubuntu 22.04
Product Name/Version: v126.96.36.199, built 21/12/2022 17:54
Problem Description: If you use a non-alphanumeric character in your initial password you might as well reformat your hard disk
Steps to reproduce:
- Step 1: Install using the standard bash script
- Step 2: Use any special character in your password e.g. ?,! or $
- Step 3: Now impossible to enter AMP
Actions taken to resolve so far: I tried opening a terminal as the amp user and using ampinstmgr to resetlogin but since no actual login exists there is nothing to reset.
So can never access the amp terminal the first time to complete the install. Tried apt remove ampinstmgr but that got me nowhere. This is the third time I have had to completely reformat the HDD and re-install ubuntu as it is pretty much is impossible to uninstall AMP.
I used this forum and Google and from what I can see once AMP is installed it is impossible to remove completely. It keeps enough hidden files that if you try another install it says “already exists” and exits.
I suggest a big warning on the linux install page saying “DO NOT USE SPECIAL CHARACTERS”
