FAA ISO Customizations Help

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.

FAA ISO Customizations Help

Post#1 by moakes » 10 Mar 2015, 19:24

So I was able to create a Oracle Java .xzm package thanks to Slaxmax's guide. Tested it in my VM running Porteus and it successfully loads our Java based website. I think we will have an issue with Porteus Kiosk when people load the website though. I am guessing a reset of the kiosk will lose the preference to allow Java on that website in Firefox. Which leads me to my first question:

Is there a way to permanently allow Java on all websites, in the ISO?

We will be utilizing a whitelist so it shouldn't be too much of a security issue.


Is there a guide for building custom .xzm packaged?

We want to a few things like a specific version of Citrix Receiver/ICA. Is there a guide for this or is it more that it depends on what you want to package?

Google is your friend:

Java and porteus kiosk:

Custom modules porteus kiosk:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/modules.html

If this is not sufficient for your needs there could be the commercial services for a more than reasonable fee:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/builds.html

Fanthom the developper specialist of the kiosk edition should come around if the preceeding links are not suitable for you.

Yes, I have read all those. 1st link is useless to me as I have Java working, just need a way to allow it to run on all website without user intervention. I think this is more of playing with Java deployment config and setting though before the .xzm package is built.

2nd links talks about unpacking and packing .xzm modules. Doesn't really relate as well since I want information on create new .xzm modules from .tar.gz or .deb files. This link is more useful.

3rd link could be a way to go but we would like to be self sufficient and be able to do this ourselves. :beer:

Thanks though

So after including the modules in the ISO and booting the ISO from usb... it downloads modules I select from the internet. Should I not select these modules in the wizard? How would you go about configuring VNC and SSH passwords? Now I am more confused than ever by this process...
