Description Wade Minter 2000-12-28 15:19:49 EST
Installing the mysql-server package in Beta-1 does not prompt the installer
to set an administrator password for MySQL.  Instead, it installs with a
blank password for the root account.  Older versions of MySQL prompted upon
installation of the RPM to set a password, which is probably more desirable
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-12-28 15:42:57 EST
RPM is designed as a non-interactive tool, asking for input is not acceptable
and can't be handled by many front ends using RPM.
