Projects / dlogin


dlogin is a replacement login which allows automatically adding users who login via a virtual terminal (local terminal) to a group or list of groups temporarily. This can be used to allow such a user to shutdown the system, use the audio device, etc., even if they are not root. It also allows "quick logins" (if you have logged in on one VT, you can login on another without having to enter your username and password again).
