auto startup of a process / program (including slackware)
seems the reason it wouldn't work is because i needed to set the NO_PASSWORD_CONSOLE option in /etc/login.defs...
everything is working fine now... i set 3 ttys, tty3 being the one that is autologin...
this is what my working setup looks like now:
c1:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:235:respawn:/sbin/agetty -n -l /usr/sbin/autologin 38400 tty3 linux
if [ -z "$DISPLAY" ] && [ $(tty) == /dev/tty3 ]; then
/etc/securetty (i commented all ttys except tty1):
in the inittab i removed the "1" from the c3 line as i don't want the auto login tty3 to be up when i go to runlevel 1 (single user mode)...
