scrennsaver - 2 differen .zip files possible? 3.7.0 version

1) Please post on the kiosk section of the forum only.
2) 32bit release is not supported anymore
3) You could use 'run_command=' to download second zip and unpack it directly to /usr/share/screensaver. Did not test but should work.

kiosk_config and hostname_aliases for each install

During first boot after installation the kiosk reconfigures according to parameters which are present in remote config.

In short - you need to add 'hostname_aliases=' parameter to your remote config if you want it to be present in the kiosk system.

OpenVPN compatible

OpenVPN makes little sense in kiosk as you'll have to remember to update certificate before it expires.

Anyway - see here:
