How to autoboot your Pi without login prompt


This tutorial is ideal if you don't want to keep logging in with CLI, everytime you boot up.

You will no longer have to keep Logging in with Startx, or user and pass to get into ur LXDE after this one. Ideal for servers/car computers etc.


Log into your Pi, then type:


sudo nano /etc/inittab


Look for the line:


1:2345:respawn:/sbin/ getty 115200 tty1


Just add a "#" infront of it to disable it:


#1:2345:respawn:/sbin/ getty 115200 tty1


Add this line under it:


1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f pi tty1</dev/tty1>/dev/tty1 2>&1


Hit CTRL + X and Y to save.




sudo nano ~/.bash_profile






Hit CTRL + X and Y to save.




sudo reboot


It should now boot automatically. :)
