    Exclamation Root password cache????memory???


    Hi all,

    I was researching and cant find anything to help me out with this topic. So here it goes.

    Lets say i was logged in as regular user : Joe
    and i went to System>Administration>Network
    I would be asked for the root password.... i was told there is a way so that when you do that once, everytime after that first root password entrance ...when you click on Network (as long as you dont logoff, shutdown, restart, u know the rest) it automatically lets you go without asking for the password.

    I know this isnt safe security wise but i am curcious where i would go to enable/disable this setting.
    Any help even sites would be much apperciated.

    thanx for your time,
    Eagle

    You need to pass the -n switch to kdesu when it is called. This will not keep the password. There is actually a timeout value in one of the .h files that I think you can toy with, however the documentation on this seems pretty horrible.
