Hi I am setting up a linux box to be used in a public kiosk. It has
the bare essentials installed + X + wine + my wine app. I want to make
the system basically automatically start up running my wine app on the
screen, no logins etc:
I need to setup my machine so that on boot it automatically logs on to
a specified user and then starts X (i don't want any window managers)
and then starts a specific wine app running. Basically I want to
automate the following:
logon the user
Could anybody give me some steps to acheive this please!
I am not worried about security as the user will be locked right down
and the program will be running in a public kiosk (I want everybody to
be able to use it!!!).
As an extra::: Once this linux box is setup the contents on the
Hard-disk should remain static, except for perhaps the odd log file. I
am concerned that if the power-failed the disk could get corrupt...
Once this machine is installed I never want to have to meddle with it
again. Could I mount the file-system read only or something?
presumably I would have to have a seperate partition for /var? Could
some1 please advise me.
Cheers in advance,
