Autologin in text mode

Post#1 by injector » 16 Aug 2016, 12:35

autologin does not work in TEXT mode.The cheatcode login=guest or login=root in porteus.cfg works only for inerface X mode for text mode it asks the login and password each boot
@ brokenman advice to search info here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/au ... al_console to file /etc/inittab insert the next:
[Service]
ExecStart=
ExecStart=-/usr/bin/agetty --autologin root --noclear %I $TERM


but the same result
Maybe anybody knows to smth. Thanks

you have to modify /etc/inittab by adding -a root
in lines beginning by c1:12345 ---> c6:12345
then reboot

if changes mode active ok for every session
else use rootcopy
