NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     autologin - set autologin user identity

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]



DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/autologin is an ASCII	file containing	the login user name to be used
     when autologin is enabled.	 The file is used by xdm(1) and	clogin(1) when
     automatically initiating a	terminal session on the	graphics console.

     /etc/autologin.TTYLINE is like /etc/autologin except it is	used by
     getty(1m) when initiating a terminal session for the device named by
     TTYLINE.  For example /etc/autologin.ttyd1	will control the login
     processes on /dev/ttyd1.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Autologin is controlled by	the existence of the /etc/autologin.on file.
     The file is normally created at boot time to automate the login process
     and then removed by xdm or	clogin to disable the autologin	process	for
     succeeding	terminal sessions.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/autologin, /etc/autologin.on,	/etc/autologin.TTYLINE.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     clogin(1),	xdm(1),	getty(1m).
