Naw- I just thought (incorrectly) that is why it was hanging and freezing up when trying to autologin.If it bugs you that much, you can disable the /dev/sda1 mount in /etc/fstab
OK- so, I removed the little autologin file we created earlier in this thread (/firstname.lastname@example.org/autologin.conf), and used the kodi autologin.
I didn't see an error- but maybe it just scrolled by without my notice.
I'd say my problem is solved and everything works great!
Quick recap for anyone interested in doing this with some other app-
Use the diet-pi config autologin option to select kodi
Then do modify is /root/.bashrc.
After /DietPi/dietpi/login (at the end), add the following:
/opt/retropie/emulators/vice/bin/x64 (Or whatever program you want to autorun when the machine turns on)
THANKS SO MUCH!
Watching it turn on and boot straight into the emulation is like so much magic to me! It's so cool now that it is working!
i REALLY appreciate your taking your time helping me!
With dietpi I can have the emulation and all the games, etc for the c64 I can find and still have lots of room left over on a 2gb microsd card.
Now I've got to do this with the amiga emulation and figure out the rest of my wishlists like boot splash screens.
