Hi and welcome to the forum.

Out of curiosity, why would you want to automatically login to a server? Are you attempting to login automatically into the terminal or have you installed a GUI on the server and you would like to use gdm or kdm to login?

I don't use gdm, kdm and GUI.

I only want to auto login by console.

Can you help me?
