First I must admit that I'm pretty new with Linux, so some of my terms may look odd to some of you.
I'm using a 2.4.26 Linux kernel and a Linux distribution as an operating system for a controller.
I developed a software to run over the controller and to perform some activities with the controller resources.
During the development session I operated the Linux on the controller from my PC using a serial emulator (getty) and logged-on as root.
Now I want to distribute the controller and it need to be able to login in automatically and to run the software that I wrote as soon as the operating system boot is done.
I other words: the controller should not be connected to any keyboard/screen and still need to be able to login (without prompting) and run my software right after boot.
1. How to enable automatic login (as root?, as other user?) ?
2. How to set my software to run as soon as the boot is done?
