Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436885
Anaconda UI buglet - root password box not focused
Last modified: 2008-03-18 22:13:05 EDT
A couple of minor things have changed in recent anaconda builds:
1) Network setup screen - defaults to being set to "localhost.localdomain"
manually, even if hostname was picked up by DHCP
2) On the Root Password screen, the text input box is not focused when the
Also Right-Alt is equivalent to Enter or Spacebar - it activates the hilighted
widget. Probably this is evdev-related but I haven't found a bug filed for it yet.
You violated a bug reporting rule. Don't report more than one bug per bugzilla.
#1 was on purpose, but, yes, it should be dropping the hostname it found in to the entry box. Will look at
Will look at #2 too since I worked on that last.
Right, right. Sorry about that. If you'd like, I can split this into two bugs...
heh. (Actually the first bug mentioned is already fixed (thanks!) so I won't
waste time by doing so.)
I'll be sure to file the keymap thing separately.
Fixed up the root password entry box focus. Also fixed the glade file so we don't get libglade warnings
on the console because of root-password.png.
I cannot reproduce the hostname problem you're describing.
With anaconda-18.104.22.168-1, the root password box appears to have focus, but
keyboard input goes nowhere.
Clicking on the second input box makes them *both* focused (!?).
I can hit Alt-P to focus the first box properly, and then it accepts keyboard input.
I'm seeing the same thing, a single tab works though.

Fixed in rawhide now. Sorry it took so long. The "revenue" product had my attention for several days.

Focus root password entry box (#436885).
Make sure the root password entry box has focus when we
get to the password screen. Pressing Enter will take
you down to the confirm box. Pressing Enter in confirm
is the same as clicking Next on the screen.
