    How to boot directly into a specific program?

    I have an old laptop that I wish to make into a dedicated Atari ST emulation machine.

    I have an emulator lined up, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to get the machine to boot directly into it.
    I don't want a window manager at all, the emulator runs without one.

    The emulator that I want to use is Hatari, which works with SDL.

    Ideally, I would like the machine to boot directly into Hatari, and shut down when I select 'quit' in the hatari menu..

    I would have thought that this would be ridiculously simple, but I don't seem to be able to find a way to do it simply and without running a windowing environment?

    I think ...

    you would want to manage your runlevel:
    apt-get install rcconf
    rcconf

    and initiate running a program via changes to /etc/rc* files.

    That's where I would start anyhow.
