Auto-login in elive

Is there any way i can set elive gem to auto-login a user?

I only have one user on this computer and it would be nice for it to automatically log me in.

Thanks

This feature actually not exists by default on Elive, but maybe you can experiment with entrance configurations and source code (anyways, i recommend you to wait better that the feature can be included by default, you can be turn crazy trying to make it working)

The log in is a pain.

i like to press on and walk away. when i come back it should be on, not waiting for me to log in.

can you write a patch or a module that will do this? i have the full version.

I followed the following guide -
[linuxgazette.net]
Only changes would be location where you put the autologin file.
/usr/local/sbin/autologinbrads
/usr/sbin/autologinbrads
is where mine are, just in case.
You also have to rename the entrance file in /etc/init.d so its not envoked at boot.
Also I have exec enlightenment_start in my .xinitrc file.
I think thats all I did, been over a year since I did it and elive still running smoothly. Only thing is you can't switch between e16 and e17 easily.
