Re: Open Xlock as root



Isn't this a moot point as anyone can walk up to an annoying xlock screen
under xfree86 and hit ctrl-alt-backspace? :)

You could put the root password in /etc/passwd file with normal encryption
and it should work also.  Pam can read crypted passwwords here without
root privs?   Sounds bad doesn't it?

At this rate, you should just hack up xlock to have a backdoor password it
retrieves from some other location, if you want to keep xlock in general.
The next modification is of course to have it prompt for a password before
it locks the screen also.

This message should have more :) in it, but it looks wierd with it.
Please remember this before you reply to me. :)
