Autologin as root in Text Mode [Solved]

Post#1 by OldAndWeary » 13 May 2015, 13:39

Is it possible to auto login as root in text mode?

Note: Used to work in Porteus v1.2 ... can't make it work in v3.1

Cheers John

Another option is to edit /etc/inittab

Code: Select all

# These are the standard console login getties in multiuser mode:
c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -a root --noclear 38400 tty1 linux
