I'm doing strange experiments combining elements from Porteus (the kernel, the initrd, and the kernel module) with a Debian Wheezy core module.

Re: Improve Porteus security

I've tested the login cheat and oddly it does not work... it's better to edit the /etc/slim.conf file and disable autologin from there (does porteus use slim on any DE?)
