Buying new Hardware - need help selecting equipment that will work with Porteus

@drm7369
In term of kiosk following hardware definitely works:

Code: Select all

Intel NUC Kit NUC6CAYH
Intel NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH
*Probably all other NUCs*
Intel ComputeStick second generation
ZOTAC PI221
Wintel Pro CX-W8 (very cheap - good performance)
These are only few which i dragged out of my inbox.

Buying new Hardware - need help selecting equipment that will work with Porteus

Is this question related to Porteus Kiosk or Desktop?
If kiosk then all these miniPCs should be working out of the box.

Thanks

PXE boot PK 4.5 not reflecting customisations

Hi rans, 1) Did you update 'http_server=' parameter in /unpacked_kiosk_ISO/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default? I guess yes otherwise kiosk would not boot at all over PXE. 2) Is your http server hosting all files from /unpacked_kiosk_ISO folder? It must host /boot, /docs and /xzm folders and all files/subfold...

Adding a driver

You will have to recreate kiosk kernel sources and then compile NextWindow driver against them.

See here for similar case:
[Solved] WIFI-problems on some recent laptops?

It may be easier to use 'customized kiosk builds' service instead:

Put your firefox preferences to a text file, upload this file on Dropbox and use this parameter in kiosk config:

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

Hi rych,

nvme driver must be compiled directly into Porteus kernel or loaded from initrd before the search for .sgn file is performed.
This is something for brokenman to look after in next release.
