Description Hans de Goede 2001-01-22 14:44:04 UTC

It's rather easy now to not add a user in the GUI installer,
but my real problem was:

-type root passwd 2x
-enter all user data
-do not press add
-press next
-oops press back

And the user data is gone

-warn about user dating being there which isn't added
-remember the userdata so that it can be added by just pressing back

Fixed internally.

Comment 8 R P Herrold 2001-07-17 18:02:53 UTC
Represented as in Rawhide, and si it whould have appeared in the Beta 2

TUI - 7.2B2 -

Password entry visual fields length STILL not fixed to match Root's in the prior
screen, in the "Add User" screen.

Reopened - escalated to High


Come on, guys, this is not that hard.  The print manual 'screenshots' which
caused this to be put on hold six months ago are going to get locked in again --
PLEASE get it commited.

-- Glen -- I ask for  'mustfix' BEFORE the print doco screenshots are locked,

Comment 9 Brent Fox 2001-07-18 16:55:43 UTC
Ok.  We now require that the user password be at least six characters
long...just like the root password.
