autologin at boot in runlevel3
« on: October 03, 2007, 06:00:18 am »

Hi :) i'm a new user of vector and i like it a lot :D
Vasm really simplify some task and just works as it is supposed to.

But.. now i'm struck with this, i'm trying to autolog in a user (not root, i'm not crazy) on my little server with VL5.8 standard (a celeron 433mhz , 192mb ram, no monitor) at boot.
i've read that mingetty should do te trick, but the modifies to inittab that i've tried doesn't works.

there is some step to step howto for vector (i've even tried to boot on runlevel 7 or 8 but with no results) or slackware or anything that can help me clearly?

p.s. if i've written some error forgive me , but english is not my mother language :) (any italian using vl?)
