CopyToRam

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.

CopyToRam

Post#1 by nulls » 22 Jun 2014, 04:55

Hi,

I am quite new to porteus relatively. Been using mostly the porteus desktop version all via straight ISO boot and copytoram.

I just like to know if copytoram is also supported for the KIOSK version. I tried the following without success (I am using grub 1.98) :

menuentry "Porteus KIOSK "
{
set uuid_partition=7507-8BE0
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid $uuid_partition --set=root
loopback loop ($root)/PorteusKiosk31_i486.iso
linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz from=/PorteusKiosk31_i486.iso iso-scan/filename=/PorteusKiosk31_i486.iso copy2ram
initrd (loop)/boot/initrd.xz http_server=
}

Wheen booting, the system displays:

Device not ready yet? Delay 20 seconds.....

It then counts down to 0 and then displays:

3.12.20-Porteus-Kiosk
net.ifnames=0 BOOT_IMAGE=(loop)/boot/vmlinuz from=/PorteusKiosk31_i486.iso

Then kicks into # command line.

thanks in advance

hi nulls,

copy to RAM is forced in latest version of kiosk. booting from ISO is not supported as for security reasons kiosk is designed to not accept any cheatcodes from our desktop editon (cheacodes could allow an attacker to beak booting process).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
