Adding a driver

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Documentation is on the kiosk webpage:

Hi fanthom,

I have a HP 300-1000 Touchscreen all in one pc.

Porteus Kiosk does not recognise the touchscreen.

NextWindow controller:
T: Bus=03 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#= 2 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.10 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=01 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=1926 ProdID=0006 Rev=00.01
S: Manufacturer=NextWindow
S: Product=Touchscreen
C: #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=a0 MxPwr=100mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
I: If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=03(HID ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=usbhid

I'm currently searching google for any info on drivers. I've found a few leads in the following places.

I've had a look at the documentation, and think I need this : http://porteus-kiosk.org/kiosk-customization.html

I'll start experimenting and see if I can work this out :)

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

See here for similar case:

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

Thanks

Ok, have followed http://porteus-kiosk.org/kiosk-customization.html so far (I figured out I'd have to do this on a standard linux system. Not something locked down like porteus kiosk. I ended up trying Porteus Desktop, assuming it would have everything I need in it.)

I've gotten as far as running the following commands

Code: Select all

    mkdir /tmp/kiosk_ISO
    mount -o loop kiosk.iso /mnt/cdrom
    cp -a /mnt/cdrom/* /tmp/kiosk_ISO
    umount /mnt/cdrom
And then followed this guide http://porteus-kiosk.org/modules.html to unpack my 000-kernel.xzm file

I"ve emailed support and received the .config file.

I have some questions.

How do I "recreate kiosk kernel sources" ?
How do I "compile my driver against them" ?

Thansk.
