Re: autologin?

I know I will get slammed for this, but on my laptop, I put something

su - username -c "startx"

In inittab.  Its horrible, and im sure it causes problems I am not aware
of, but it works nonetheless.  Actually I think I put it in a script that
was put in inittab.  Something like that.
