Release Notes: This release fixes the "kl_passwdctl not defined" compilation bug and has been ported to Linux 2.4.0 final. Now the ioctl cmd KBDLOCK_SET_PWD passes the password directly to the driver, whithout the use of a socket pipe.
Release Notes: The kblockset utility has been improved a bit, and the software has been ported to linux-2.4.0-prerelease.
Release Notes: A bug in the key reading was fixed so that now it reads key releases instead of presses. The userland utility kbdlockset is now able to unset the unlock password through the argument '-c' Some messages were added. An ioctl() command to clear the password was added. This version is patched against a clean version of 2.4.0-test12, while the previous patch had been taken from an already patched kernel.
Release Notes: First release.
