I am looking to execute a user-interactive shell script once root logged in fedora 16. in another word, I need everything in my system to be automated ( auto root login and auto execute my shell) and end with my shell. how can i execute a shell script on root login (CLI login NOT GUI) ?

note: i have seen this approach Fedora Autologin in runlvel 3 and Autostart application but it does not work on FC16

solved by editing the /root/.bash_profile :-)
