Description Marcos F. Villa 2003-07-26 09:56:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686) Gecko/20030530 Galeon/1.3.5

Description of problem:
There's no text informing the user if has typed the password correctly or not,
it's not a great bug, but it was really nice in previous versions where you were
able to see if it is too short, or if the passwords don't match.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Every time you type the Root password in the installation

Actual Results:  Nothing is displayed if your passwords don't match

Expected Results:  A text should be displayed (as in previous versions)
indicating if the password is too short, or if it don't match

We've changed this behavior to be more consistent with the rest of the
installation process and give a dialog with feedback as to the problem instead
of disabling/enabling controls on the fly.
