Unable to enter root-Password in liveinst
Last modified: 2008-03-18 17:16:13 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm unable to enter a root-Passwort in liveinst. If I hit a key, no * is shown
in the password field. I'm also unable to click on that field to "activate"
it. So I had to hit "Next" to proceed. After I clicked the error, that a root
password must be entered, away, I'm able to enter a password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ever (on a actual spin of KDE Live CD)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot live image
2. start liveinst
3. try to enter password
Entering a password isn't possible in first attempt
Entering password is working as expected
I don't know if liveinst started in debug mode would give more errors. I'm not
able to do this because of bug #437952
If I start liveinst from a terminal no output is shown.
You can type a password if you use TAB first. This problem is not limited to
only live, plain install is problematic too.
