How do you configure RHEL 4.0 to allow the "root" account to set a screensaver?
Posted on 2006-10-23
Hello. We are building a lab that is heavy with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 (Update 2). As part of our security hardening, we need to be able to allow the local adminstrator accounts (root) to set a screensaver. RHEL 4.0 by default does not allow this but we know there is a workaround solution (other organizations have successfully done this but consider their techniques to be proprietary). We haven't stumbled on to the magic formula yet.
Does anyone know how to allow the root account to set screensavers?
