    [SOLVED] Autologin in voyage linux


    Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to autologin with voyage linux.

    It's debian based.
    There are no Gnome or KDE.
    It is not using mingetty; it's using getty in the inittab file.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks.

    Olivier

    apt-get install mingetty
    Code:
    nano /etc/inittab
    Replace
    Code:
    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
    With
    Code:
    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --autologin <user-name>  --noclear tty1
