Disable shell auto logout session in Suse Linux

Q: How to disable the auto logout session in Suse Enterprise Linux?

A: Need to edit the autologout.sh file in the main profile.d folder:

# vi /etc/profile.d/autologout.sh

Change TMOUT env variable from 300 to 0 and comment out echo in next line:

#readonly TMOUT="300" && export TMOUT   
readonly TMOUT="0" && export TMOUT  
#echo "Remoteboard Login detected. Timeout activated.";

Now issue the source command or logout and login back again:

# source

As a result:
# echo $TMOUT  

and auto logout is disabled now.
