Bypassing login and password in Ubuntu
I am setting up an old PC as a media server using Ubuntu 7.04. I will only ever use a single user id on it and I want to have Ubuntu automatically log on as that user and not prompt for user or password. I don't want to destroy security completely as I want to retain it for sudo and PCs connecting via samba.
Years ago I fixed a server to force telnet logons into a specified account by hacking telnetd (hexediting actually) so that it called a program other than login which in turn executed login with the specified user name. Is there a neat way of doing the same to a login via xorg.
