Is it possible to have a user automatically logged in when the computer boots? I know there might be security issues and its not a great idea, but i wont use it for root... Thing is, i have a pc which i dont really want a monitor and keyboard for, and at the moment the only thing i use them for is to log on at the start, and unfortuanatly i cant have the pc running all the time.
Any advice would be appriciated. Thanks.
sorry, one otherthing
I was looking for a way of doing it without having to use a graphical login manager, i only have 64mb memory and so its not great! although if that is the only way, advice on how to set that up would be aprciaited.
I think you should be able to have /etc/rc.d/r.local call a script that would do it, but that is a guess
Incase anyone else wants to do it,
and add the following lines:
echo "auto login for username"
su - username
just replace username with the username u want logged in.
Thanks for your help/
Just to let you know.
You don't need to be logged in to run it without a keyboard and monitor. It will run services just fine not logged in at all
