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:

Thanks

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,

HP t5565

"When booting a Kiosk installer the screen loses signal, however when installing the Thinclient version it runs through fine." That makes no sense as both systems use exactly the same kernel and drivers. Please boot ThinClient version, generate debug report in the wizard and send it to support@porte...

Hi Marthin,

You should add your homepage to the whitelist ('whitelist=' parameter).

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.

I'm maintaining kiosk so can answer only for this system.

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.

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?

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:
