Post PAM set a no user login policy


Hi All,

I am trying to have a default user name when I login in. I would like PAM (or whatever does the job) to translate a blank loggin into "foo", and then prompt for a password.

And is there a way of limiting this to only some services (say to sshd and xdm), for instance by adding some lines only in the relative files in the pam.d ?

Thanks for your help,

Gal

Well actually it's not only lazyness, it is because I am trying to replace kdm with xdm (I think it is better for security), and I have to do this without removing several possibilities offered by kdm.
