Description Sebastian Vahl 2008-03-18 08:46:35 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):

How reproducible:
ever (on a actual spin of KDE Live CD)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot live image
2. start liveinst
3. try to enter password
Actual results:
Entering a password isn't possible in first attempt

Expected results:
Entering password is working as expected

Additional info:
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.
