Drupal 6.x: fatal error in installer

During database setup the following fatal error may occur in the web-installer on some systems:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function _user_password_dynamic_validation() in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/install.php on line 727

It can be solved by modifying the system table of your Drupal database:

mysql -u -p
use
UPDATE system SET status = 1 WHERE name = 'block' OR name = 'user' OR name = 'node' OR name = 'filter';
exit

Then reload the installer page on which the error occurred and your installation wil continue.
