ethX port enumeration not stable

Hello tagon,

I understand that you have one ethernet cable plugged to the kiosk PC.

Please disable unused NICs in the PC BIOS. That would be fastest solution.

Thanks

Porteus Kiosk wizard - can't setup WiFi

Perhaps the system has no driver for your wifi dongle.

Please use wired connection, generate debug report in the wizard (dongle must be plugged it) and send it to support@porteus-kiosk.org.

Porteus Kiosk Server and Virtualbox

Is this the config which you host on PK Server?
Is it visible as 'config1' in the Admin Panel?

Please provide the config which you see in the wizard during client installation.

Can't use DHCP in setup wizard.

Hello Kshef,

1) If manual IP configuration works then it must be your router/DHCP server fault.
Please boot Ubuntu live and check if its able to configure the network using DHCP.

2) Is your PC 32bit? If it has the 64bit CPU then please use latest kiosk release: 5.2.0.

Thanks

Touchscreen and drivers

Hi Martin,

I have never heard about DDC2B connection.

I'm sure our calibration tool does not support it so (if you are lucky) things will work out of the box or wont work at all.

System partition is limited to 900MB so your ISO cannot be larger that that. Some modules may be downloaded during the installation, browser, printing, etc and they make the final ISO larger. System needs the RAM size of approx 3 x ISO size for installation/reconfiguration/upgrade. If you get this w...

Possible to change hostname of kiosk machine remoetly?

You can change the hostnames using remote config(s) and this parameter:

Code: Select all

hostname=
If you use a single config for all your kiosks then you need to enable nested configurations:
