Thats right. I hate this. Why would you do this to anyone? Why waste space on a server that is meant for good when there are other better scripts out there?

I find this tool useful, but there already is a vlock available, and some other console locking tools, wich maybe more secure and have more features:
ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/utils/console/

And I wonder, what this has to do with kde. o_O

Good idea anyway.

Sad thing that you know it is off topic here and you submit it anyways.

Use hashing (sha1 perferably) for the password. To accomplish this, just run the password through a sha1sum, then store the hash. When the user enters his password, run the entered password through sha1sum. If the 2 hashes are the same, then accept the password.

That way, even if someone finds the hash, he won't be able to get the password.

I use the "sha1" utility in shell scripts, and the SHA1_* functions in C/C++ programs. These come with FreeBSD, but I can't help but think identical or very similar routines are available in Linux.

What's the point on vlock?

I mean, we have terminal lock. Why would I want vlock? Someone could just close the terminal or even open another one. Your script -IMHO- doesn't make any sense :(

so you can you an also lock vitrual terminals e.g. the ones on Ctrl+Alt+F1 though Ctrl+Alt+F6 so if you need to leve for a a while you can just lock your terminal instedd of logging out it is just like a lockScreen except for a terminal !! so that is the point
