This will give you a bash prompt with no need for a password on the first console. Password authentication requires a whole raft of libraries and conf. files to be set up correctly (esp. if you are using PAM). Once you sort out what needs to be there to make logins work on the other virtual consoles, you should then remove the above hack as it is a security hole if someone can gain physical access to your console. Note that this hack does not set up /dev/tty1 correctly for line editing etc. (the login process does all that), so some apps (like vi) may behave less than optimally. Also, you don't need X Font Server (xfs) running on a diskless machine. Edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config to use a remote font server instead of a local one. Mine is set: FontPath "tcp/fontserver:7100" Cheers, Bob Edwards. =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Bob Edwards <Robert.Edwards@anu.edu.au> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
