tl;dr Can I override the auto-login feature sometimes, to log in as root?
My Pi is running Raspbian Jessie and acting as a kiosk in a public location. For this reason I have renamed the
pi user and removed
To get auto-login working I used the
raspi-config command, boot options, CLI auto-login, to generate an autologin service file in
/etc/systemd/system/autologin@.service and changed the username in that file. This works great.
Normally I will use
ssh to remotely administer it, but in case of network failure I'd like the ability to log in locally.
However even if I
exit from the terminal it logs me right back in. Is there a way to override this and log in as root?
