Hello everyone!

I want my X to start at boottime without password.

So i found this guide:

http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/TIP_Passwordless_Login

Followed "passwordless X login" and needed to add the local.start file. But when i reboot, nothing is changed.

Am i missing something? :)

You may want to check into the options for the login manager you are using, i.e. gdm, kdm, slim, etc... I know on several of them, there's an option you can pick that load up a default user for you without password needed (even though you have a password for the user). I've used it before several times on my computer, and even have it setup on my mom's computer (also running linux). I'm not sure right off hand, on what file you need, to do it manualy.
