autoboot xfce

Could you recommend a way the get FreeBSD autologin to a user account at boot and then start X using .xinitrc?

I would like to boot right into xfce4 without using xdm or slim.
Hi there,

It seems kinda late..but I'll post it here incase anyone needs help with it. There are 3 files you need to edit:

1. /etc/gettytab
2. /etc/ttys
3. Your shells' rc file, e.g: ~/.bashrc

Edit /etc/gettytab and search for autologin. Add these after the last entries:


Replace 'your_username' with your user login.

Next edit /etc/ttys. I set mine to autologin on ttyv5. So my entry looks like this:

#ttyv5  "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv5   "/usr/libexec/getty logmein"    cons25  on  secure

Lastly, I'm using bash shell so this is what I have in my ~/.bashrc:

if [ `/usr/bin/tty` = '/dev/ttyv5' ]; then
    /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/local/bin/startx -- -nolisten tcp

Hope this helps.
