SDB:8.2 Resource Manager
From SuSE Linux 8.2 on, access to certain hardware is granted to the users through a "resource manager" (in short,
resmgr). This resource manager makes it possible for the users to have, for example, write access on a CD writer or read access on a scanner without having to run any application other than
resmgr as root user.
resmgr is configured for logins via graphical login managers, such as KDM, GDM, or XDM. When logging in to the system in runlevel 3,
resmgr is disabled. Follow these steps to prepare for using
resmgr via a non-graphical login, too.
resmgr through a non-graphical login, append the following line to the file
session required pam_resmgr.so
Then log in again to apply the changes. For additional information about
resmgr, refer to
