This is a really simple question but I am rather new to Linux (only had it a few days).
I’ve installed openSUSE to dual boot with Windows 7. All is well, both OS’s work as they should.
As of yesterday, when i select openSUSE from the grub bootloader, it loads straight into my account without asking for my password. As far as I’m aware, I haven’t made any changes that would alter this? Im using the latest version of openSUSE with KDE 3.5 (i think, it’s definately 3.something).
If somebody could just tell me how I would re-activate the password prompt at login I would be extremely grateful. I have had a look around all my configuration settings but nothing really stands out.

i agree with caf…
but, the default install, unless you CHANGED the x i the box at this
step during install http://en.opensuse.org/INSTALL_Local#Step_7:_Create_your_user
WILL automatically log in the user which did the initial
install–unless YOU changed to always require a log in after the
installing…(which apparently you didn’t do)
however, you may not have noticed it would auto-log in because the
default install will PAUSE at the green log in screen for [mumble]
seconds (maybe 5 or 7) before proceeding with the auto-log in…
so, if before today you were always looking at the screen AND paying
attention you may have stopped the auto-timer when you clicked to type
in your password…and, therefore THINK your input was needed, when it
