Gnome Autologin


Recommended Posts

When I select Boot -> Enable Autologin from Mandriva Control Center (drakconf-10.4.13-1mdv2007.0), MCC complains:


No bootloader found. Creating a new configuration.

...and then select "Launch the graphical environment when your system starts" and"Yes, I want autologin with this (user,desktop)" (and I select a user and the Gnome desktop) the system doesn't automatically log the user in when I restart the system.


Why? :huh:


FWIW: Using grub (grub-0.97-19mdv2007.0)

I have Mandriva 2007, and just a couple of hours ago I was able to get the auto login to work. At the login screen/page, choose 'configure login manager', then give your password, then choose 'security', then 'enable automatic login'. I also tried to get the automatic login to work from within Gnome, but, like you, it wouldn't work.
