Password Security
« on: January 17, 2018, 08:57:35 AM »
Hi all. I've looked into this wiki: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:passwd
and I have set no autologin to the boot loader, but it is not requesting the password. All I have to do is type in the username and it will login. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

The bootcode is noautologin

Did you set the password for the user, add the following to /opt/.filetool.lst and do a backup?
etc/passwd
etc/shadow
etc/group
etc/gshadow

They are in there. I'll make sure to do a backup and reboot and I'll let you know.

Is there a way I can add smbpasswd, network config, and automount drives to the backup file?

I suggest you read the book.  It will answer a lot of questions.
