An option to make autologin quiet #21

Hi, I'm trying to have an absolutely silent boot:

However I find agetty printing with the configuration:

ExecStart=-/sbin/agetty -i -a hendry %I 38400

The following:

hostname login: hendry (automatic login)

Which is undesirable. I thought initially -n, --skip-login might help, but it doesn't after testing and looking at the source. Thanks!

Fixed by upstream commit 933956c.

   agetty --skip-login --noissue --autologin foouser

provides silent login now. Thanks.

Note that you need ~/.hushlogin or /etc/hushlogins do make login(1) silent and probably also reconfigure PAM to not print some messages (like "Last login or" so...).

Why wasn't this fix in 2.22.2 ? Thanks!

Hmm... I does not seem so urgent and important. Maybe I was too
restrictive, the patch is not invasive. Next time. Sorry.
