So I've written a simple UI in C. Its read only and displays system information like disk space, network info, etc.
I am running ubuntu server 14.04 and currently when the appliance starts up I am prompted with the classic ubuntu text login and password prompt. Instead, I would like my program executable (compiled with gcc) to run and be displayed before this login prompt. What would be the best way to do so?
Please pardon my lack of "terminology". I'm relatively new in this area and don't have much experience with shell scripting. Let me know if there is any more info needed to answer the question..I was having a bit of trouble myself wording it.. :) Thanks in advance!
Edit: Picture to get the idea. It's something similar though this is just something I found while googling to demonstrate the idea.
