No more auto log-in as default

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


In the installer of openSUSE 11.4 (and I guess also in 11.3, 11.2 and 11.1) the toolbox "log in with this user automaticly" or something like this is choosen as default.
That means, if you just click on "next" during installation, you will auto log in with your user, when you start your system. This happens without any password-check.

This might be good for people who just want to work with their PC and don´t think about the system. But it´s a big security risk. Think of you got personal files on your harddrive, and your user is logged-in automaticly. Now, other people can easy get access to your /home dir. They just need to start your PC.

So, please, disable this by default!

User benefit:

To drop a potential security lack

To care about the user´s security
