I am thinking about doing an Ubuntu installation with their mini ISO, which comes only with the barebones system without a desktop environment/GUI.

I remember being given the option to set up automatic login when doing a full Ubuntu desktop installation, but how to I enable that for the mini ISO install? Did I miss something? Also, is there a generalised way to do this on any Linux OS?



You might find some ideas in this thread of linuxquestions.org


All you need is the tool mingetty. Concrete example and comparison in the mythTV Wiki.
