After lots of hours of work I can conclude that both Chromium 56 and Chromium 61 requires libc.so.6 and when I add libc.so.6 to the image Porteus Kiosk ker...

Install latest Chromium instead of Chrome in Porteus kiosk 32-bit 3.7.0

After inserting module gamin-0.1.10-i486-5.xzm Porteus kiosk hangs on boot. That mean that id doesn't react on pressing CTRL+ALT+F1. Probably without help I will stick with Firefox 50 version forever.

Download the .tar.bz2 file of the Firefox version you want from Mozilla, https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla. ... inux-i686/, save it to the /tmp folder then run, as root, update-firefox.
