Automatic login
« on: 21 February 2010, 03:49:43 pm »

We use an SD card for running some tests on plugs from time to time - I got fed up of logging in as root every time:

* Install mingetty
Code: [Select]
apt-get install mingetty
* Amend /etc/event.d/ttyS0

Code: [Select]
#exec /sbin/getty 115200 ttyS0
exec /sbin/mingetty --autologin root --noclear ttyS0

Now I see:
Code: [Select]
ubuntu login: root (automatic login)
