Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

This is not correct - you need to follow the FAQ closely.

Hint: do not need to check for a presence of all flags (using grep), if one flag is present then all other flags are also there.

Thanks

Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

You need to separate your flags with a space. Updated the FAQ for this case.

As ED_P pointed, yes - we have older Firefox in kiosk. Its explained here:

Turn off HT / SMT threading

Hi nanZor,

I think 'nosmp' cheatcode should be enough to disable hyperthreading.

Firefox video autoplay

Hi penuorte, Not sure if i understand. We use Firefox-52.x in the kiosk which is not affected but the issue you have described. Have you customized the ISO and included newer Firefox which causes autoplay issues? If yes then this thread should be posted in 'Users modification to the Kiosk ISO' subfo...

How to add old or own Chrome extension

Great tutorial tomas, I'm sure it will be useful to others. One thing to note, this command: grep -q $CHKEYFLAG || echo $CHKEYFLAG >> $chflags should be: grep -q load-extension $chflags || echo $CHKEYFLAG >> $chflags otherwise your flag will be added to flags file during every session restart. Thank...

Kernel Panic on older hardware?

No need for an installation, booting live and generating debug report is enough. Most of linuxes allow for booting in live mode so users could test the system before performing actual installation on the hard drive. You could check distros which claim legacy hardware compatibility in the first place...

Hi RBasil, Is there any linux which can boot on these PCs?

The initial Fireox settings were lost.

Your post is so chaotic that i dont even know where to start ... 1) Kiosk ISO is read only so nothing changes until the admin update remote config. a) did you update remote config? b) do you have full persistence enabled? c) please provide your kiosk config 2) I'm not sure what you mean by: "user ha...

Cookie persistence with Firefox not working?

I'm sure there is no such difference as Firefox was not upgraded for a relatively long time.

Porteus Kiosk 4.8.0 PXE Boot and Firefox credentials

You need to create a module from your custom files and copy it to the /xzm folder on your PXE server.
Your custom module will be distributed to the clients then.

I though i have explained this already here:
