First boot suggestion: set passwords after setting localization settings

Radxa4SE Raxda dietpi v8.15

Suggestion for future releases:
Since the default keyboard is the international 104key (GB), setting the passwords prior to setting the localization settings can make it so the user’s passwords no longer work after setting localizations in the setup process. I encountered this problem as I set up dietpi the first time, because I am in the US and my password included a couple symbols for which the keys on the US keyboard and the International keyboard are different. Once I set the localizations to US I could not login after reboot.

I would Suggest that you not request password changes during first-boot and leave that for after the localizations have been set.
