Unhappy Login Problem with Suse 8.0

I got into work this morning after a long weekend off and the first thing I did was switch on the standalone desktop system that I'm using to develop test web applications. The system is running Suse 8.0 with a graphical login.

When I came to enter my username and password it accepted the username entry but when I tab down to the 'password' field nothing I type is appearing in the field. Whatever I type is not being recognized in the field.

Oops - answering my own post here!

Checking the Suse website suggests that at times although entries to the password field do not shown in any form on the screen the data entered will be recognized.

In truth I had only noticed this when I entered the wrong password to the field.

I think that is for a security reason:

login: root
password: **********

you just enter 11 chars I guess it must be michaelegan right ;-)

Have a lot of fun :-)
