Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

I am in the current planing stages of making a stereo mp3 player, and run it run linux. So I was wondering if it can be set to auto logon without any input, because it will not have a keyboard attached. It will not be connected to anything so there are not security issues. I found info on "cajun", but was wondering if there is another way?
Is this going to be in a car? Will it have a monitor and mouse?
One used to be able to set up kde to show a username for default and that matched with a blank password would get you in. There might be a way to get xdm to do it if you don't want/can't run kde on the machine.
KDM will definitely allow you to autologin without a password. Of course, that requires that you install KDE... though it is possible to set it up so you aren't actually running KDE, just using KDM as your login manager.
killerbob, thought of that, however I was alittle worried that it might make the whole start up to long. I want to keep, the start-up as fast as possible, with the least amount of things running, so there is less to go wrong.
mdarby, will have to look into a script, I will proberly need one to handle coping mp3's into the unit.
coffeedrinker, No, it will be for home, I am planning to have a inbuilt LCD screen into the unit, and thats it. will look into the agetty line, sounds like it might work.
Still have to find a program that will automaticly start Lcdproc and XMMS, though. hopefully something that will run on the lcd and allow me to have other options as well.
Now I am using TS-7200 for development and its TS_kernel version is 2.4.23 and based on RedHat. It has LCD display and 4x4 keypad for user interface. There is no compiler on the board and have to make development in Host computer. My host's linux is fedora (ver:5) and have communication of RS-232 and telnet with the board (RS-232 is default display for booting and login).
Here is my question. I want to see the boot and login mesg from LCD Display instead of Host monitor and, want to use 4x4 keypad instead of keyboard. I would like to make TS-7200 be independent of host computer and it can be run stand-alone. In order to do this, I need autorun for login and drivers for lcd display and 4x4 keypad. Currently I can make auto-login but cannot load driver during login. Could anybody give me the guide( way ) to make autorun?
