Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 218113
the encryption password prompt should be explicit
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:50 EST
Description of problem:
sudo and mount have the same "Password:" prompt and one cannot know when doing
sudo mount /encrypted/partition whether the requested password is the sudo
password (because of the sudo timeout) or the encryption password
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo mount /encrypted/partition
If sudo was used recently, get a "Password:" prompt expecting the encryption
Else, get an identical prompt expecting the sudo password (account's password).
The two prompts should be different.
Please, see "man sudoers", the passprompt option.
