I'm using evilwm for a window manager on gentoo, and used some info from
this site to get the autologin working:
There's probably an easier way, but this worked great for me.
This is the relevant portion of my /etc/inittab:
c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -n -l /usr/local/sbin/mythlogin 38400 tty1
And just for reference, here is my .xinitrc and .xsession (both have the
# Merge X resources from ~/.Xdefaults
[ -f $HOME/.Xdefaults ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xdefaults
# Set the background and root cursor shape
xsetroot -solid \#400040
xsetroot -cursor_name top_left_arrow
# Start evilwm - snap to borders within 10 pixels
/usr/bin/evilwm -snap 6 -bw 0 &
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset s noblank &
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off &
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset dpms off &
And my .bash_profile (to automatically start X):
# This file is sourced by bash for login shells. The following line
# runs your .bashrc and is recommended by the bash info pages.
[[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc
if [ $(tty) == /dev/tty1 ]; then
startx -- -dpi 100 # larger fonts for viewing on the tv
Hope it helps,
