Re: Can Debian's paranoia be tamed

Remove gdm, and put in the file "/root/.bash_profile" following lines:
if [ -z "$DISPLAY" ] && [ $(tty) == /dev/tty1 ];then
To have a auto-login, you can also modify "/etc/inittab" and replace a "/sbin/getty" by "/bin/sh". The better with those solutions is the removal of a useless software. The problem is that you will not have a shiny background while you are not logged in.

Of course, you asked for a very unsecure trick, do that at your own risk if someone or yourself in another state (say, after a nice night with friends and beers ;)) can access physically your computer... but you said it was not the case. And, seriously, windows users do that by default and their computers works not so bad.

  It has no possibility of connecting to the internet.
  It will *never* be updated.
  The installation CD lives in the drive, for various reasons the
hard drive is wiped and reinstall done 2-3 times per week.

When I boot I want to do *ANYTHING*!
