Using the scologin administration script
The Graphical Environment provides a script, /etc/scologin, that
allows system administrators to control the scologin
process. The script must be run as root.
There are six options that you can use with this script:
starts the scologin process, which in turn reads
the files Xconfig, Xservers,
and Xresources, all located
stops the scologin process. Run scologin stop
to halt all current sessions managed by scologin.
For example, use the stop option if you want to
reclaim scologin-managed ttys and restore
This option shuts down all scologin processes
on your system, which results in the closure of any
sessions running at the time you run the script. You should
notify users before you run this script.
shows the current state of the scologin process
stops the current scologin process and prevents
scologin from starting when the system re-boots;
re-enables getty processes on scologin-managed
ensures that scologin starts when the system
re-boots and starts the scologin process if it
is not already running
if scologin is enabled, disables getty
processes on screens that are configured for
scologin. scologin init should
only be run by init at boot time.
To avoid potential security problems,
now uses authorization by default to control X display
access. To turn off authorization, edit the
/usr/lib/X11/scologin/Xconfig file and set
the authorize resource to false:
