I came across a strange problem using KIOSK31 (and also other Porteus31's)
When I boot KIOSK31-CD(original download), and choose wired connection
plus automatic-IP(DHCP), then my phoneline is still alive.
BUT after pressing 'next' in the following screen:"Final Confirmation'"
my phoneline is dead. Internet is working (goes down after like 30min).
Then I have to RESET my modem + ReBoot the computer to get back
online and get my phone back to life.
When I take the same laptop + same CD to my neighbour and boot
this, connected to his LAN, there is no problem. So the problem is my LAN
connection (online.nl netherlands), or KIOSK31 uses some code that my
LAN don't know, strange because KIOSK21 didn't have this problem.
(can there be a virus in a modem? I don't think so, so it must be hardware
or settings. Still strange, because KIOSK21 has no such troubles)
To be sure I used 'back to factory-settings' for the modem. Still same trouble.
VBOX_KIOSK21 is not working + BIOS_KIOSK21 is booting fine
BIOS_KIOSK31 is not working well + VBOX_KIOSK31 is booting fine
So somewhere between 21 and 30 the code in porteus changed
Making VBOX-boot better and BIOS-boot worse (for me alone?)
All other Linux-distro's(20) I tried don't have this strange behaviour.
Fanthom advised me to try manual-IP instead of DHCP
This works perfect. So I do have a solution for VBOX and 'real life'.
But still it would be nice to know whether other people experience
the same strange problems.
Post bug reports related to either the kiosk ISO or the kiosk wizard here.
