2009-12-04 10:10:44     Serial console - automatic logout after idle

Hi all,

 

Using Hush shell on ttyBF0, and wish to enforce an automatic logout if the console has been idled for x seconds.  Now, I am aware that the TMOUT environment variable is used for this for some shells.  But it doesn't work for me.

 

If anyone has any idea how to do this, then let me know... otherwise I'll write a daemon of my own.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Tim

As suspected.  I'll investigate to see how much work it'll be to implement it in Hush.  It maybe useful for others in future.

 

Thanks,

 

Tim
