<alkisg>
!hash
05:47
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'hash', but I do know about these similar topics: 'LDM_PASSWORD_HASH', 'ROOT_PASSWORD_HASH'
05:47
<alkisg>
!LDM_PASSWORD_HASH
05:47
<ltsp>
LDM_PASSWORD_HASH: LDM_PASSWORD_HASH=True in lts.conf saves the password hash to /etc/shadow on login, so that the users can unlock the screensaver etc. If they happen to change their password though, that only takes effect until logout.

<mwalters>
alkisg: is it normal to have to manually unlock the login keyring on fat clients, even if the password is the same as login? Any way to avoid this?
13:27
"normal"
13:27
I'm not 100% certain this is due to ltsp
13:28
<alkisg>
mwalters: it's normal, as ldm doesn't use pam and doesn't unlock the keyring on login
13:29
I tell my students to use an empty password there, to avoid the unlock prompt
13:29
It will be solved with ltsp6, or something :)
13:29
Which won't have ldm anymore,and will use pam instead
13:34
<mwalters>
cool, I figured it had something to do with that, thanks!
