[error] 0.020000 AMD-Vi Command Buffer Timeout

Thats because we are still on 4.14.x LTS kernel.

Next LTS should be 4.19.x (hopefully) so we could do the switch in October/November.

"I hope this would be implemented in next Porteus Kiosk release as homepage_poll"
Whats wrong with using 'run_command=' parameter? Using run_command you can configure every single detail how this task should be handled.

"Will make a donation soon :)"
Great - thank you in advance.

Something like here:

Code: Select all

run_command=while true; do dunstify -C 100 2>/dev/null; wget -U Mozilla -T20 -t1 http://domain.com -O- | grep -q "your string" && break || { dunstify -r 100 -u critical "Homepage is not available"; sleep 9; }; done

Dont think many people would use it. You are first asking for it.

Please use 'run_command=' parameter to perform this check.

Not sure what you mean.

This function uses following command to determine if webpage is available:

Code: Select all

wget -q -U Mozilla --spider -T20 -t1 http://domain.com
If you need to search for specific content then only kiosk customization can help.
