pam_console and init su



i'm trying to setup a machine to autologin as a user on startup. i've tried
to set inittab so that the following line respawns at runlevel 4

exec su -l -c startx user

however i get a message that PAM authentication failed due to lack of
console ownership.

i realize in general this is not secure, but the machine is in a safe
environment.

how can i get pam_console to see this login as a console login? or is there
a better solution?

btw, running redhat 7.1

thanks,

sam
