I found this info in a text file of mine (copied from somewhere, but
don't remember the source). I remember I used it once to create an
autologin workstation for someone who really wouldn't want to know
anything about usernames, password or this while unix type of thing. And
as I recall it worked ;)
1. Add to the /etc/gettytab file the following strings:
test:\ - entry name, autologin will use this username;
al=test - autologin username;
ht - terminal has real tabs;
np - 8-bit chars;
(optional) sp#115200 - line speed;
2. Edit /etc/ttys file:
ttyv0 "/usr/libexec/getty test" cons25 on secure
Change 'Pc' with test.
