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

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-07-27 03:17:29 UTC
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.
