Re: How to prevent auto start of matchbox-terminal at boot?

Alexander Kanavin

Please share the log.do_rootfs for your image, otherwise it's difficult to say why the terminal ends up being there and gets autostarted.

Hello Yocto Community -

I am using Yocto to build a core-image-minimal image for Intel hardware.  When the system boots, it automatically starts a matchbox-terminal as root.  This is a huge security hole for this embedded system product, because anyone who plugs in a keyboard and monitor has access to this terminal.  I've spent about two days trying to figure out how to start X without this terminal appearing.  I assume there's a config file somewhere indicating that this terminal should start automatically, but I haven't been able to find it.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!
