I have been trying to get Screenly OSE up and running.

Everything works really well, but I have a problem. After the Pi is booted, it starts in the terminal. On the other hand, if I switch the instance of the terminal to another by pressing F2, Screenly starts up and runs as it should.

It's only running Screenly by pressing F2, I have no clue why. I want it to start automatically every time I boot the Pi.

Is there anyone out there who has had this problem, or can help me out in anyway?

That's very strange. My best guess would be that something is wrong with the SD card and/or something went wrong during the installation/flashing.

Firstly, are you running on Raspbian Jessie or Wheezy? If Jessie, start over using the latest disk image.

If you're using Jessie, I would suggest that you run the upgrade and try installing the latest developer version to see if that solves the issue.

You can do this by running:

$ bash <(curl -sL https://www.screenly.io/install-ose.sh)
