Is there a way to manually update an ISO?

Post#1 by Fip » 09 Aug 2018, 00:31

Hello,

I am looking at deploying some diskless public web kiosks using PXE to boot them from and a server installation to supply the configuration.

I saw in the documentation that the automatic updates would not work with the PXE boot. Is there a way to manually update an image with patches and such outside of the regular releases?

Thanks for your time.

Hello Fip,

Easiest way would be to order a customized build ISO made of latest snapshot from the 'automatic updates' channel + updated initrdpxe.xz component.
You could order it whenever you feel your kiosks need to be updated.

The best would be to sign up your kiosks to 'automatic updates' service - that would require an installation on usb sticks though (or some more reliable storage).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
