I am working on creating a real time kernel with RT-PREEMPT patch. I have created this kernel without graphic desktop. It comes up in the terminal mode with login prompt. The requirement is, it should boot and directly go to the shell prompt with root permission, without asking for login. How can this be done? Can you help me?
I have done some research and found that this might be what you want. Is that correct? http://linux.koolsolutions.com/2009/04/30/autologin-linux-console-mode/
I have not yet been able to test this. But I will do so in a moment.
I have gotten it to work, but it is slightly different on Ubuntu.
This worked for me on Ubuntu 12.04, if this works for you and you need more tty's to autologin start changing tty2.conf - tty6.conf and you should be good to go.
