Last modified: 2014-03-04 11:50:51 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda does not allow easy to break passwords for disk encryption.
One can use 'root' password for root after double confirm the password.
One can not use such password for disk encryption password.
The dialog does not show any clues about what's acceptable and what's not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select disk encryption
2. enter simple word to the dialog (e.g. test)
Nothing happens. Dialog asks again.
- either there should be a possibility to force weak password
- or there should be some feedback the password was rejected.
F20 allows users to set weak disk encryption passphrases.
