    KDM logs in without password


    kdm started logging me in without asking for my password. It was working normally. i did not change any settings related to login. autologin is not enabled and passwordless login is not enabled. it is set to start a new session. if i logout, I get the normal login screen, it just doesnt ask for login when i start the computer.

    this is in suse 11.2

    any ideas?

    i selected autologin and hit apply and then deselected it and hit apply. i did the same thing with passwordless logins. then i restarted and it is working properly now. now it offers both root and my user name to login. it didnt offer root before. i'm just glad its working

    well, it started logging me in automatically again. I have reset it, but I dont understand how this is happening.

    any ideas?

    resetting this through personal settings did not stick. it would randomly revert?

    instead, i used yast to edit the /etc/syconfig file. that works and seems to be sticking.
