    Default Passwordless YAST

    Hi all,

    Is it possible to enable a user to start YAST with no password?

    Thanks!

    No. And that's security, so it's fine as it is.
    Yast remembers the password for a while when 'remember' is ticked.
    Since Yast is (should be) only started when you have a need to mess with the installation or hardware, the times you need to enter the password shouldn't be so many as to kill the security.
    It is abhorrent the spiritual greed of those that knowing something, do not seek the transfer of such knowledge.

    As this remark makes me think that you are not used to security on Linux please read this SDB:Login as root - openSUSE
