Description Daniel Powell 2001-08-22 20:56:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0) Description of problem: When choosing the root password for your system during installation the installer allows greater than 8 chars. But when you add a user, the interface stops accepting characters at 8. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start the install of Roswell2 2. Enter a root password 3. Add a user and Password 4. password stops at 8 characters Actual Results: I typed in a 9 character password but the installer only accepted 8 When the install process was done, and It booted to X, I tried to login and got a failure. dropped the last character from the password and login succeeded. Expected Results: Installer should accept MD5 passwords for users and root. there should be no limit unless md5 passwords are turned off, even then without md5 passwords everything above 8 is truncated so it doesnt really matter. Additional info: People used to typing long cryptic passwords will be miffed at having to change their password later after the installer is done. My normal testing password has 9 chars, letters and numbers. I can't believe it took me 2 beta cycles or so to realize what was happening with the logons. DOH!
