Description Xander D Harkness 2003-11-01 04:44:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.6a)

Description of problem:
Upon install a user missed while trying to click and drag across the
partition field size in disk druid.  His intention was to select the
partition size and type in a new value rather than use the increase /
decrease buttons.

The size was successfully chosen; however this seems to have an effect
three screens in when being asked to set the root password.  The
password entry fields are locked and the install cannot progress until
a root password is entered.  The only choice is to reboot.  Going
backwards and then forwards does not resolve this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-9.0-4  (First release on install ISO)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.drag across the new partition size in disk druid without actually
managing to select the text (i.e. miss)
2.complete entries in disk druid
3.try to complete installation and enter root password - fields are
not available

Actual Results:  The fields are empty but will not accept text; cannot
complete the installation

Expected Results:  The root password should have been entered and the
installation continue.

This is fixed for FC1.  The workaround is to right click in a text
input field.
