Cannot auto login with problem:INIT: Id "mxc1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Question asked by yang gao on Aug 31, 2017

Hi All,


Every time I start my imx6q sabre lite board, it always asks me to enter login: root , so I have tried this way(Reg: Auto-Login and run a script Automatically ) to auto login, in my /usr/bin, I create a autologin script contains this:

exec /bin/login -f root
then in /etc/inittab, I have changed
#mxc1:12345:respawn:/bin/start_getty 115200 ttymxc
to follows
mxc1:12345:respawn:/bin/start_getty -l /usr/bin/autologin -n 115200 ttymxc1

but when I reboot the board, it doesn't auto login, and it display: 
INIT: Id "mxc1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes


I don't know where is wrong and how I should modify this file? I attached my inittab file, thanks in advance!
