[Solved] Kiosk delays if internet connection not available

Post#1 by codinghusi » 04 Sep 2019, 15:10

Hi,
on my Porteus Kiosk runs a local webserver so I won't need an internet connection.
But if I have no, and the browser starts first after a minute or so. During that minute a message sais "gateway not is not set".
How can I prevent that delay?
Btw. though if there is a connection available I want to use it!

codinghusi,

"How can I prevent that delay?"
You need to set static IP which include (an even fake) gateway address.

"Btw. though if there is a connection available I want to use it!"
You cant eat the cake and have the cake.

You either wait on connection or set static IP (and gateway) to bypass the gateway check.

Please post in kiosk section of the forum only.


Thanks

I want that the kiosk connects to the network parallel so the browser will start as fast as possible.
Sometimes it could also be that the wifi won't be available.

(Could I btw change my ip and gateway with simply customizing the iso?)

You cant as config is encrypted.
However - you could remaster the ISO and disable gateway check by editing /etc/xdg/openbox/autostart in 003-settings.xzm module.
