problem installing

For future reference:

Please remaster installation ISO:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/kiosk-customization.html

and add following parameter:
pcie_aspm=off

to /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg and /boot/isolinux/grub.cfg next to the 'quiet' parameter.

Their should fix the freezes you are experiencing.

Kyocera KX Printer drivers

I cant recreate your issue. Maybe its hardware specific.

Do you get the same problems when you use unmodified kiosk ISO?
If yes then please generate short debug log in the wizard and send it to support@porteus-kiosk.org.

Thanks

Kyocera KX Printer drivers

Hello lordcrash2000, These drivers are proprietary and obviously are problematic.

Install Porteus KIOSK without Internet

Hi radzio6,

Here is the procedure:

a) generate kiosk ISO in the wizard

b) save it on usb stick instead of burning:

c) boot any Linux and burn kiosk ISO on target PC using 'dd' utility, sample:

Code: Select all

sudo dd if=Porteus-Kiosk-4.0.0-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sda

Sound Card

Hello jfitton, Are you running the kiosk on very same hardware model? a) If not (your PCs have different sound devices) then you must configure kiosk for each PC type separately. b) If yes then probably the same sound driver is used for both devices and sometimes they may be initialized in different...

Guest session persistence not working

"Is this because Porteus is downloading the RDP file from the server on every startup? Would it be better to deploy a custom package with this RDP file stored on disk?" I dint think this matters. Maybe its a kiosk bug. Please contact with support@porteus-kiosk.org and i'll ask you for associating yo...

Kyocera printer doesnt print.

As explained before - i do not have an access to your printer.
Need SSH and VNC to your kiosk in order to debug this.

Guest session persistence not working

Hello kevxlree, "On Portius Kiosk Thin Client edition I have configured full persistence mode and persistence for the guest home folder." Full persistence means persistence for the guest home folder.

[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.

Robust network examiner

"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.

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
