I have reently changed my init runlevel from 3 to 5 thus allowing graphical
login using kdm as the login window. (SuSE 8.0)
I want to change the shutdown options so that only specific users ( root
included ) can shut down the system. I am setting up the main computer as a
server for remote X terminals and I do not want users at the X terminals to
be able to shut down the main computer! At present any user can shut down the
I have attempted to change the setup of kdm using administrator mode, but no
changes seem to be recorded. In what file is is the configuration kdm kept.
There is a file /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc but that seems to be
unaffected by changes.
There is a file /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager with an entry
# KDM_SHUTDOWN determines who will be able to shutdown the
# system in kdm. Valid values are: "root", "all", "none", "local", "auto"
but there is no apparent effect.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
