Custom ISO [Solved]

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.

Custom ISO [Solved]

Post#1 by dangerDan » 16 Jun 2016, 21:37

Hi,

I am trying to make a kiosk.iso with a few modifications to the 003-settings.xzm file. I have completed all the steps but when i use the ISO the system boots but never gets passed the initial 'loading' screen i.e. the wizard never pops up and i am left staring at the porteus kiosk logo. Any ideas?

process:
- mount and copy iso files to dir
- unsquashfs settings file
- make changes
- mksquashfs files to new settings file
- make_iso.sh
- isohybrid
- burn to USB

Hello dangerDan,

Perhaps files/foders permissions are incorrect? They must have following ownership: 1000:1000 if guest user supposed to read them.
Please create separate module rather than editing base ones and add single file to it. If that works then add more modifications.

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

Thank-you. Using a separate xzm file with the modified files did the trick.
