I tried setting my security on a Mandrake 8.2 install to "HIGHER" (level 4)
and i couldn't do much of anything. programs wouldn't run, i could log in
initially after installing the system, but after logging out, i could never
log in again. The system of course at that level won't allow root logins,
and my "wheel" user was somehow locked out. I found it unbearable to work
with, so i had to reinstall using simply the "high" setting.
I wish there was better documentation on this portion of the install, the
extra inherent security is great, but i need to be able to log in.
