Has anyone build yet a new version of (x)freerdp for porteus? 1.1.0 or newer? Of course the latest version is prefered.
rdesktop has not all possibilities and the version included in porteus is really old.

make your module

1 - You need devel module activated

2 - Download this zip package and extract ...

3 - In terminal (as root) go to folder (zip extracted) and execute slackbuild script

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# cd /home/guest/freerdp
root@porteus:/home/guest/freerdp# ./freerdp.SlackBuilds 
wait execution...
the module will be copied in the /home/guest

check freerdp version

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ xfreerdp --version
This is FreeRDP version 1.2.1-dev (git n/a)

Found this thread looking for a way to use freeRDP on Porteus Kiosk.
The instructions work for Porteus 3.1 MATE, but not for Porteus Kiosk.
What additional steps or modules are needed to get it working there?

Found part of my issue. I was trying to load a 64-bit module on a 32-bit kiosk, which is a non-starter. *headdesk*
I needed to build a 32-bit module.

Now I have a 32-bit module, but the kiosk complains about and I'm quite unsure where to get that.

Got it. Converted libXv-1.0.10-i486-1 and openssl-solibs-1.0.1m-i486-1 from the Slackware packages to XZM and now I have working wired kiosks that boot straight to a terminal server login screen.
