Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2001-05-22 16:07:18 UTC
I suggest to change the default permission of /etc/lilo.conf to be 0600
instead
of 0644, because /sbin/lilo complains when user tries to use the boot
password
in lilo.conf with default permission.
I would also appreciate if Red Hat Linux installer can set up the boot
password
for new users (and add the "restricted" keyword to lilo.conf).

Good idea IMHO. Thought of that but forgot to file in Bugzilla...

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-04 06:26:08 UTC
The installer will allow you to setup grub passwords now and will properly set
the permissions on the file if you set up a password.  Also, anaconda/up2date
will preserve a password and permissions if they are already set
