How do I get a user login prompt in Digi Embedded Linux bootup on Connect & ConnectCore devices ?


DEL with kernel 2.6.35.14 or above will support multiple users on target boards. ie: 5.7, 5.8, 5.9 etc.
To get user login prompt in Linux boot follow the below :-
  1. Create a DigiEL-Kernel/Rootfs/U-boot Project in Digi ESP for DEL
  2. Edit workspace/project_folder/build/rootfs/etc/inittab file as below :-
# Start busybox console
::respawn:/bin/cttyhack /bin/login username
# It will ask for password of username at the end of bootup process.

3. use -f to force login without password prompt

::respawn:/bin/cttyhack /bin/login -f username
# It will not ask for password after bootup
