Generation of PCID

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Generation of PCID

1. Where does the pcid come from and if its an algorithm based on the MAC address, can you provide it?
2. Is there a way to set the PCID for a device?
3. Is there a file on the kiosk or the server that contains what PCID is associated to what MAC?
4. Is there a command we can run on a system running Windows to determine what the PCID would be in Porteus?

Hello p1t,

1) Please contact with this query
2) There is not
3) There is not. You can only find which PCID is associated to which kiosk, this info is in the /etc/version file.
4) Should be possible in certain hardware configuration (rules are complicated) - please contact for more info.

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
