Re: [Solved] symbolic links disappear

Thank you and shame on me - the problem was that my links pointed to absolute paths in my porteus-desktop environment. After deleting the paths in my symbolic links they appeared in kiosk. :good:

[Solved] symbolic links disappear

Don't know, if it is a bug or a security-feature, but all my symbolic links in the xzm-modules get lost when the modules get installed to Kiosk when booting. The symbolic links are really in my xzm-modules, because they don't get lost when I extract the modules in my porteus-desktop environment. Is ...

Re: Activating OpenGL for external programs

Thank you very much for that great hint :good: . I managed to install Gentoo with an easy Installation guide (http://www.tecmint.com/gentoo-linux-installation-guide/), but had to emerge "xserver-xorg" first to get the libglx.so-file (the one that comes with Porteus-Desktop was too old for my Mesa-Ve...

Activating OpenGL for external programs

Hi, I replaced the browser with a program that uses OpenGL. So I downloaded mesa-9.1.7-i486.txz, glew-1.9.0-i486.txz, glu-9.0.0-i486.txz, gsl-1.16-i486.txz, libdrm-2.4.46-i486.txz, libxcb-1.9.1-i486.txz, desktop-file-utils-0.21-i486.xtz with Porteus Desktop Unified Slackware package Manager and conv...

Re: Start Kiosk from Iso-Image on hdd

Your Posts helped me a lot! Thank you very much! :Yahoo!: As no files on the image were accessible (no entries in blkid) I moved boot, docs and xzm-folder in a new folder called "iso", so the initrc.xz becomes much bigger. This is no problem for me, because the image-size stays the same. I made the ...

[Solved] Start Kiosk from Iso-Image on hdd

Hi, I would like to Porteus Kiosk on several notebooks with a boot-option. These computers have no connection to a network. The user should get a bootmenu (I am using grub4dos at the moment) and can chose between Kiosk (which is used to startup a special application (no browser) and the regular inst...

Re: Booting Kiosk on UEFI

"Burned" the Iso on USB and it worked! Very nice! :good: Then I unpacked it under Porteus Desktop (Porteus-RAZOR-v3.0-i486.iso) and tried to repack it with "make_iso.sh", made it "isohybrid" then, but resulting Image booted with "No operating system found." Is it necessary to use 64bit Version of Po...

Re: eject kiosk-boot-cdrom

Thank you very much for the help! As ejecting or unmounting in the init-script didn't work, I saved the $DEV variable in a file within the init-script: $DEV > /union/usr/share/lw.txt Then I modified rc.S: read DEV < /usr/share/lw.txt umount -nl /dev/$DEV eject -rsfqpm /dev/$DEV Now the CD gets eject...

Re: eject kiosk-boot-cdrom

Unfortunately the command "umount -nl /mnt/$DEV 2>/dev/null" does not work in the init-file. When the command is included, the "exec /sbin/switch_root /union /sbin/init"-command does not load the GUI anymore. Instead there is no error-message, but I can write text, but no commands. Do you perhaps ha...

Re: eject kiosk-boot-cdrom

Thank you for your fast answer! :Rose: So I just try the command "umount -nl /mnt/$DEV 2>/dev/null" ? Back to the auto-eject thing.. my theory is that I can copy the eject binary from porteus desktop into the bootloader usr/bin and call "eject" in that init-script.. but not tested that. Is there a c...

eject kiosk-boot-cdrom

Hi, when I boot porteus-kiosk burned on a cdrom, the cdrom-drive gets locked, but I can't find something like "eject -i" that locks the drive. I need to take out the cdrom after booting. Where is the "magic line" I have to change? Is it possible to automatically throw out the cdrom after booting? Al...

Re: Booting Kiosk on UEFI

Thank you, that would be very nice! It wouldn't be a problem if I had to decide between legacy(mbr) and uefi before making the ISO.

Booting Kiosk on UEFI

Hi, this is my first post. First of all, thank you very much for Porteus Kiosk! I made a custom hybridiso, "burned" it on usb and it works fine on my "older" computers. My problem is, that it only works on my friends laptop with UEFI, if I switch it to legacy-mode and have to switch it back after us...
