Passwords ???? Xbox 360 ????

Post by smittie46 »

I am fairly new to linux went threw my distros and ended up staying with linux mint but my question is, Is there a way to stop putting my password in almost everything I do for me I dont like that yet! Anyway to drop the number of times I must retype my password. Also if thats what I have to do to keep from being infected or crashing or anything I guess I better get use to it, Also is there a Linux App for your Xbox 360 like the Windows Media Center, if I could port my videos to xbox with linux I dont think I would need Windozs anymore and would love to dive in without the need for another O.S I have goggled and came up with nothing I wanted or understood,I believe in my search I was missing a key word or phrase but I couldnt come up with it so anyone's Help will be greatly appreciated Thank you

You need only enter your password for administrative tasks, like updates or changing settings that affect the system. After installation this is indeed quite often as you finish setup and tweak the system to your preferences, but for normal day to day use you will hardly need your password.
