    How to disable login and password by command line

    Dear all,

    I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application Iíve been working needs to be initialized on boot up.

    So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line.

    How can I do it? Iíve seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...

    Could you help me please?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards,

    What do you mean initialized on boot up? Why would that require the login to be disabled? What is the application?

    You absolutely do not need to autologin to the console to run something at boottime. Depending on what exactly you need, running a script in /etc/rc.local is probably a good option.

    Alternately, creating a service script might be an option.
