Posted by fd0 on July 27 2008,14:09I need to login as user (dsl) without the system ask me username and password.
I have some ideas to manipulate inittab but if exist a specific configuration or an method in DSL standards I prefer use it.
Posted by mikshaw on July 27 2008,19:12The default in a liveCD/frugal DSL system is to behave as you described. I'm guessing you have done a traditional harddrive install rather than frugal.
There should be two inittab files in /etc....the one you are using is probably for a multiuser system.
There is also /.bash_profile, which in the frugal setup would automatically log you in as a regular user (typically dsl). I don't know if this works in a traditional harddrive install, though. It might need some tweaking.

I have substituted the standard inittab (yes I have installed DSL on hd) found in /etc/ with the single user inittab from a DSL booted from live CD
thankyou for precious suggestion
