Kind Systemd mailing list,
I'm currently facing lots of problems in setting up autologin on a minimal install (no xserver) of Fedora 20: up until now I followed the guide at this link  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Systemd#How_do_I_set_automatic_login_on_a_virtual_console_terminal.3F
with only these main differences:
1. - the symbolic link replaced the original getty at tty1.service (single user system, logging always on tty1, it's a computer for scientific purposes).2. - consequently I changed also the Alias to reflect the change at point 13. - the user that needs to autologin is root so the syntax for autoexec I used is: "-sbin/agetty --autologin root %I"4. - restart was set to yes since it has to happen at every boot.
The system keeps ignoring all of this and prompts me a login mask at boot...where did I go wrong?
