No need to reinvent the wheel. :-) The solution is quite simple, allthough it is to be considered a security risk, and maybe it's a bit ugly. Here's what I would suggest you to do: 1. Modify /etc/gettytab as follows: default:\ ... autologin:\ :al=<USERNAME>:tc=Pc: a|std.110|110-baud:\ ... where <USERNAME> is the name of the user who wants the screen and rtorrent running. 2. After that, go to this user's home directory and create or modify his ~/.login file to contain the proper commands to start the screen sessions and rtorrent. Please note that it might be possible to have another file changed if the C Shell is not this user's shell. BASH has another file for startup, I think. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
