    auto login applciation

    Hi all,

    i am developing a small embedded linux syste. i have installed linux 2.4.32, busybox 1.2, X11R6.7, and Java. now just try to make the system works with auto login?
    does anybody can give me a hint how to do that? i need to pass the getty, login as a user, start the X, execute a shell script which generate a java GUI application.

    thanks for any hint.

    i am using no display manager, so i was looking something that could make a user autolatically login from console and start the x windows. i use busybox 1.2. and it works very fine for init from busybox.
