User Manager
« on: January 09, 2005, 05:48:25 pm »
I noticed that there was a user manager application for opie on OZ 3.5.2, and thought that it would be a good idea to be able to have different user space.

However I cannot find any way to get a user log-in.

Am I being optimistic, or just stupid, wanting to use the Z as a user, rather than root.

You can install opie-login to be able to login as another user.

Then again, Opie as non-root doesn't fully work yet and so far no one seemed interested enough to finish that.

Where is opie-login?  Can't find it in the feeds.  

I'd be interested in a login being required on boot, as it did on earlier versions.  The "login automatically" option in setting->security doesn't seem to do anything, nor does changing the root password.

Thanks

Harry.
