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:

Code: Select all

browser_preferences=https://www.dropbox.com/files/firefox-prefs.txt

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.

Onsite tech was entering the config URL incorrectly (was adding parameter name to it) as:

Code: Select all

kiosk_config=server://SX301-config.txt
instead of:

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

Pulseaudio requires setting up ConsoleKit and can run only from unprivileged user. Apulse is much easier to integrate with kiosk - you should consider using it (compile and add relevant apulse libs/utils and copy /usr/bin/firefox from 64bit kiosk).

Not sure if i understand. You want to change the homepage (point the browser to new slides) and restart the browser at certain hours - is this correct? If yes then you could create a crontab file and overwrite kiosk existing one using 'run_command=' parameter: wget http://domain.com/files/crontab -O...
