I'm trying to figure out how to login as user "puppy" in stretchdog32.
I've got
Code:
default_user        puppy
and
Code:
auto_login          no
setup in my /etc/slim.conf file, but that doesn't work: not only does it not prompt me for puppy's password, it seems to reset the slim.conf file back to the default. Which means I'm logged in as root, which I do not want.
Thanks.

I appears that my laptop resets itself back to the defult settings when I reboot., much like the "guest" users in several distros. So, this must be my problem.

Will someone please tell me how I can stop this? It also keeps my firewall from starting.

ok... I'm getting somewhere.
The problem was with my menu.lst file (or, more correctly, the changes that I made to it)

I was using this:
Code:
title DDog  -  live-boot-3 (default Debian) Persistence Changes sysvinit
uuid 2102de26-9c52-4c50-9e2a-3a61af6fe7ef
kernel /live/vmlinuz1 boot=live persistence config quickreboot noeject forcepae union=aufs
initrd /live/initrd.img


...which didn't work. Now I'm using this:

Code:
title Debian-PorteusDog  -  changes to /live/ sysvinit
 uuid 2102de26-9c52-4c50-9e2a-3a61af6fe7ef
 kernel /live/vmlinuz1 from=/ noauto forcepae changes=/live/
 initrd /live/initrd1.xz


...which does!

Now my problem is: why can't I enable the firewall when logged in as "puppy"? It works fine when logged in as "root".

Did you enable slim ?
Menu > System > "Start/Stop Slim display manager"
EDIT: Oh, I see now, probably the problem was because the changes weren't saved

I'll look into the firewall issue, and post later about it in the StretchDog thread.
Please post about issues there (rather than opening new topics), that's what's the thread is for.

Fred
