Hi guys,
I'm following this link:
http://projectdp.wordpress.com/2012/09/ ... pberry-pi/

I've done smoothly step 1~4.
Basically, on step "5.0 Pi: Boot into your kindle user’s account on tty1 -auto"
I can not sort it out by either "1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -a kindle -8 -s tty1 linux" or " 1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f kindle tty1</dev/tty1>/dev/tty1 2>&1"

And in step "5.2 Pi: Configure ssh passwordless logins – auto", I don't have a folder as described " cd /home/kindle/.ssh/" (the last .ssh is not there).

So any suggestions?
Or anyone know what step 5's script mean?

Thank you

the .ssh folder is created when you first use the ssh command to connect to a remote machine. You could try making the folder by hand beforehand

If you're logged into the pi as the kindle user its just

Code: Select all
cd ~
mkdir .ssh
Don't judge Linux by the Pi.......
I must not tread on too many sacred cows......

Thanks Guys. The problem is solved.
Basically, the following script works for me.

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -a kindle -8 -s tty1 linux

The thing I've missed is a setting to disable log into xwindow directly.
After use raspi-config to change this option, all good! I can use kindle as a sole display now.
