I am working on my livecd, and got it near perfect.

I also use autologin, but for some reasen it does not get the env right. I need to run "su" in the commandline to get it correct.

Is there a way to do this automaticly for every console? (even better without the user seeing it happen?)

So it needs to automaticly run su in the background after the autologin, but before the commandline is displayed (su will not ask for a password).

Try putting any settings you need into ~/.bashrc

Also in ~/.bash_profile put:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
source ~/.bashrc

How does it bork?

You can put any env settings you need into ~/.bashrc

For instance:

Code:
export PATH="~/bin:/usr/local/bin:$PATH"


Do you have an /etc/profile that sources /etc/profile.env ?

well your setting the env variables for one user, then changing users. putting the env vairables you want in /etc/profile or the .bashrc of that user might work...
