  • Hello all,

    How can I enable auto-login for the root user? I want start up a program as long as the ubilinux boot is completed, I tried this:

    As root, edit the file /etc/inittab. Find a line that looks something like the following:

    1:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux Replace that line with (or better yet, comment it out and add) one which reads as follows:

    1:1235:respawn:/sbin/login -f root tty1 </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1

    However, it is not working. After a while Edison reboots. Do you have any idea what is the problem?

No public wish lists :(
