Window manager? stuck in restart loop

Post#1 by Dub » 25 Mar 2015, 17:23


I have installed Porteus Kiosk 3.3.0 and when the machine boots i get to the "Powering down all devices to save power etc" message and then the screen goes black and then the screen loads from top to bottom and goes through the network config etc again this repeats endlessly.

This is on a HP t5000 thin client. I have been through the wizard on another machine and can use the created usb stick to boot that other computer without issue, It just fails on the t5000's. It is worth nothing that the same "loop" happens if I boot without config to complete the wizard.

Any help would be appreciated. I can provide remote ssh access to this box if required. I can also provide video of this happening if my explanation is not sufficent.
