Keyboard Volume Control for Sound

Hello All, Keyboard volume controls are not supported by default in the latest Porteus Kiosk 4.7.0. If you would like to enable keyboard volume controls, you will need to modify rc.xml to support these special keys. The file rc.xml is in the 003-settings.xzm module and can be found at the /etc/xdg/o...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

SOLVED? I couldn't figure out when the shutdown script was invoked, so I opted to modify the shutdown combination script instead. I overwrote "init 0" with "shutdown" and reconfigured the kiosk with the customized iso. This was the only setting changed. I enabled the shutdown combination in the glob...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

Since shutdown command in SSH keeps the WOL G flag alive in the NIC, and shutdown via the power button or scheduled tasks in Porteus Kiosk does not keep the WOL G flag alive, it made me want to see how Porteus Kiosk was issuing it's shutdown command. In the sbin folder, I found the shutdown script a...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

Additional Tests WOL Works When Shutdown Command is Issued from SSH 1. SSH into kiosk 2. Issue shutdown command 3. Issue WOL command from server 4. Kiosk wakes up! If the kiosk is powered down by pressing the power button, the computer does not wake up. Something else to think about is why does the ...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

Ubuntu Test Completed Hello, the ISO took half the day to download, but I managed to get it done today. I downloaded Lubuntu, installed ethtool via apt-get, and then ran the ethtool to set the adapter to wol g. Once I shutdown the computer, I went to the main server and issued a WOL command to the P...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

It didn't seem like there would be a connection either, but I am going to create another modified iso and test again. All I did was add the line in rc.local, make rc.local executable with chmod 755, squashed the folder, and then burned the CD. I'll have to download the Ubuntu at home and maybe try a...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

Ok, it seems that if I add rm /etc/acpi/default.sh to /etc/rc.d/rc.local in order to disable the power button then it will break SSH. I configured the kiosk using an unmodified ISO in order to get SSH working. As requested: root@vclcat02:~# echo $card eth0 root@vclcat02:~# ethtool $card | grep Wake-...

Re: Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

Well this is embarrassing. I have added these command to the global config.txt in order to get SSH onto the kiosks: root_password=xxxxxxxxx additional_components=08-ssh.xzm After the reconfiguration and reboot, I cannot SSH into the kiosks. I keep getting "Connection Refused." I have SSH previous ve...

Wake On Lan Not Working With Certain NICs

Hello, I have upgraded to version 3.5.0 to see if the new version would fix a problem we've been having with WOL not working with specific models, but the problem persists. Specifically, WOL does not work with these NICs: Broadcom NetXtreme 57XX (Dell OptiPlex GX520) Intel Pro/100 VE (Gateway E2100)...

Re: Change Static IP Address Using Same ISO

Thanks, but I didn't find the static IP address listed in the files referenced. Just need to know in where Porteus Kiosk stores its static IP address information.

[Solved] Change Static IP Address Using Same ISO

Hello, I would like to change the static IP address defined previously to a new static IP address without going through the kiosk setup wizard again due to many customizations that I would have to redo. I can see that the /etc/rc.d/rc.M file found in 003-settings.xzm initializes the NIC: # Initializ...
