Having recently resurrected my info file using the kernel parameter info=file:///info I get prompted (by linuxrc?) to enter a VNC password. The info file on the initrd has this:

And in addition the kernel command line includes:
append initrd=initrd splash=silent showopts install=... autoyast= ... vnc=1 vncpassword=thepassword info=file:///info
(without the line-breaks of course.)
Can anyone see what I am doing wrong?
I guess it's a new rule with 10.2. I can reproduce this, but only if the VNC password I chose is less than 8 characters. I don't recall this password checking before.
Yes, there was a bug about this. I was asked to change the check from > 5 to 8 chars. Meanwhile I doubt that's justified and it will be likely > 6 (which seems to be the correct limit) in 10.3.
