    I'm pretty sure you can do that with mingetty, so just do a google search for autologin mingetty and you should come across some howto articles that will get you going.

    Simply do the following:
    System > Administration > Login Window.
    Head for Security. Check "Enable auto login" Select the user you want to login with.

    FeestBijtje, doesn't that only auto-log you into the GUI/desktop?

    I think this poster was wanting to log into the console only, but maybe I misread the post.

    My bad. I thought you had to edit some thing in the file "/etc/profile" or "/etc/passwd"

    Mabe this could help you out: Login Process
