Here's the technique you can use to make your Puppy ask for password at boot if you have frugal installed on HDD.
Just follow the following technique exactly as it is:
Quote:
Security set-up for Puppy 2.16 onwards
1 Open console type 'passwd'. enter your new password twice.

2 Run 'lock' on desktop and enter password from step 1

*you may want to select 'blank' from the config to save on processor usage

3 edit /etc/inittab to look like this:

::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
tty1::respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
tty2::respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/reboot



*this keeps someone from killing lock with ctrl+alt+backspace and logging back in automatically and also gives the option on bootup to enter 'root' and 'password'.


This is the contribution made by some dedicated forum members.
If you want just thank them all.

Thank you.

Yes thanks, I have not tried it but it is good to know for those that have inquisitive visitors or whom have an internet cafee or something that needs to protect from those that abuse the set up.
