Skipping the TUI menu on login

  • Re: Allowing ssh straight to the shell

    I found a better way, rather than adding a nonstandard user (not admin or root), just change the shell for your target user. So, for admin, issue the command (as root):

    chsh -s /bin/tcsh admin

    The admin account has as its default shell /etc/rc.initial, which prints the menu and requisite prompt. Changing the account's default shell bypasses the menu quite cleanly. To restore the menu:

    chsh -s /etc/rc.initial admin

    ...and you'll get the TUI menu on initial login.
