Petalinux 2016.4 Auto Login

I've posted this before and got no answers, and I haven't seen it answered elsewhere. If I follow the instructions for autologin in UG1144 this removes the requirement for a password but does not remove the requirement to enter login information.

Is there anyway in Petalinux 2016.4 to just boot directly to a linux prompt? With no requirement to enter username?

Hi @mashman,

 

You need to modify the start_getty file in recipes-core/sysvinit/sysvinit-inittab/start_getty for auto login.

 

Refer http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/PetaLinux+Yocto+Tips I have added few examples how to modify inittab or getty section.

 

Also you can refer https://github.com/openembedded/openembedded-core/tree/morty/meta/recipes-core/sysvinit/sysvinit-inittab

Thanks,
Sandeep
