install time root password dialog rejects space characters in passwd
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
When entering the root password during an install, a space character is
rejected as "not being an ascii character".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try entering a password containing a space
error message about password containing a non-ascii character
password would be accepted
Last time I looked ASCII (not ascii) characters went from 00 (nul) to 7f (del).
You probably do not want people using control characters but I cannot see any
reason to forbid a space character. The error message text is wrong and the
code that tests for invalid characters is to restrictive.
