Save All changes.

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.

Save All changes.

Post#1 by ntrance » 19 Jun 2015, 10:24

Dear Porteus team.
1.Firts i want to thank your greate jobs and your hard work to make something like Porteus KIosk.
2.I'm using your product but i have only one problem. Problem come from there that after every reboot i lost all my changes .
3.For example i'm using firefox to make Video presentation and also some advertising. All videos pictures and etc are save (cached). After reboot or power lost i have to download again view Firefox .
If there have any option to save all changes my porteus kiosk. I',m using now 3.4.0 ?
Thank you.

unfortunately this wont be easy and persistence brings additional problem:
kiosk must be shutdown properly otherwise firefox profile may get corrupted/wiped leaving the kiosk in a broken state.

why not to use desktop edition for this task?

if you insist on kiosk then please contact me through the commercial 'custom kiosk builds' service:

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

persistence is the last thing i would like to see in kiosk: its not really needed (except for very few cases) and brings security risk. i'm not going to post instructions how to enable it on a public forum.

if you do enable persistence then you are on your own - please do not report any bugs which are caused by it.

sorry about that.
