Is it possible to have the user in the text login already entered or hidden?
I only have one user set up for login, and I would just rather not having to enter my sole login username on every login.
I use mingetty for spawning ttys.
You mean "automatic login to virtual console" ? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Au … al_console
Not exactly, because I still want to be prompted for a password.
I tried following the instructions in your posted link before, but it logged me in without a password prompt.
Ah. Sorry, I misunderstood your question.

I have tried CDM before, but I found it to be not quite was I was looking for. I'm looking more for a console login replacement rather than what CDM provides, which looks to be a post-login session starter (something I already have a script of my own for).
I read the manual page for "login" as well, and unfortunately I feel as though I don't really have any more options short of compiling my desired behavior into "util-linux".
The thought of this makes inputting my username feel very easy
