NAME

sessreg – manage utmpx/wtmpx entries for non-init clients

SYNOPSIS

sessreg [-w wtmpx-file] [-u utmpx-file] [-L lastlog-file] [-l line-
name] [-h host-name] [-s slot-number] [-x Xservers-file] [-t ttys-file] [-V] [-a] [-d] user-name

DESCRIPTION

Sessreg is a simple program for managing utmpx/wtmpx and lastlog
entries for xdm sessions.

This version of sessreg is built using the modern POSIX pututxline(3c)
interfaces, which no longer require the slot-number, ttys-file, or
Xservers-file mappings. For compatibility with older versions and
other operating systems, the -s, -t, and -x flags are accepted, but
ignored.

USAGE
In Xstartup, place a call like:

sessreg -a -l $DISPLAY -x /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers $USER

and in Xreset:

sessreg -d -l $DISPLAY -x /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers $USER

OPTIONS

-w wtmpx-file
This specifies an alternate wtmpx file, instead of
/var/log/wtmp. The special name “none” disables writing records
to the wtmpx file.

-u utmpx-file
This specifies an alternate utmpx file, instead of
/var/run/utmp. The special name “none” disables writing records
to the utmpx file.

-L lastlog-file
This specifies an alternate lastlog file, instead of
/var/log/lastlog, if the platform supports lastlog files. The
special name “none” disables writing records to the lastlog
file.

-l line-name
This describes the “line” name of the entry. For terminal ses‐
sions, this is the final pathname segment of the terminal device
filename (e.g. ttyd0). For X sessions, it should probably be
the local display name given to the users session (e.g. :0). If
none is specified, the terminal name will be determined with
ttyname(3) and stripped of leading components.

-h host-name
This is set to indicate that the session was initiated from a
remote host. In typical xdm usage, this options is not used.

-s slot-number
This option is accepted for compatibility, but does nothing in
this version of sessreg.

-x Xservers-file
This option is accepted for compatibility, but does nothing in
this version of sessreg.

-t ttys-file
This option is accepted for compatibility, but does nothing in
this version of sessreg.

-V This option causes the command to print its version and exit.

-a This session should be added to utmpx/wtmpx.

-d This session should be deleted from utmpx/wtmpx. One of -a/-d
must be specified.
