Currently i'm using flow redirect to enable auto login mode , but when i launch tmux in tty1 , it stuck.

c1:12345:respawn:/bin/login -f USERNAME</dev/tty1 > /dev/tty1 2>&1

Is there any better solution for this ?

The problem is that the redirections are not enough to have /dev/tty1 be considered as the controlling terminal for the login session.

Why not to use the -a (autologin) option from agetty? Example:

c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -a USERNAME 38400 tty1 linux
