Intel processors with a security bug

@brokenman "Did it add a large amount of size?" kernel is compressed with xz so its same size as it would go to initrd or xzm: +1.5 MB. It would be nicer to have all the microcode in initrd for the sake of cleaner kernel config. Currently i have: CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin am...

Intermittent "device not ready yet" messages on NUC

Installation ISO uses isolinux as the bootloader while installed kiosk uses GRUB (so we can have persistent partition). Maybe isolinux handles USB 3.0 sticks better? I have not enough knowledge to provide definite answer. You could also switch to legacy BIOS booting method (disable EFI) and check if...

Intermittent "device not ready yet" messages on NUC

Hi JM, I guess the PC has troubles with initializing the usb device (too many devices connected to the same hub?). When you get "Kiosk data not found" error then please drop to the debug shell (press 'd') and run following command: blkid If your usb stick is still not discovered then please swap usb...

Creating a module from standalone application

Hi David, You need to preserve correct paths in your module (executables ususally goes to /usr/bin, libraries to /usr/lib64, icons to /usr/schare/icons or /usr/share/pixmaps, etc). Then you need to copy content of your custom module to some top directory (e.g. squashfs_root) and squash everything in...

Default Hostname

Hi Marthin,

If hostname is not set in kiosk config then hostname defaults to 'kiosk'.
If hostname is not set and if kiosk is associated with Porteus Kiosk Server then hostname is set to the client_id number automatically.

Reference:

Error Screen

Perhaps your homepage loads content from other website (iframe, cross-domain magic)?
In this case you need to whitelist other website too.

Please post your kiosk config (remove passwords) and i'll check it,

"When booting a Kiosk installer the screen loses signal, however when installing the Thinclient version it runs through fine."
