Request for an alpine web kiosk build
I would love to see an alpine-kiosk build.
Basically alpine bare minimum that boots right into X and firefox or
midori (might not need a window manager?)
Lots of stuff disabled, like tty switching, key press combos to kill or reboot and anything else you can think of that would stop a user from escaping the browser “session”.
Initial configuration would be done once (and only once?) by
setup-kiosk, with interactive questions such as proxy settings for the
browser, default homepage, etc and which could strip lots of stuff out
of alpine-mini perhaps.
After that booting, read only filesystem etc.
I haven’t given it much thought, as you can tell :) Standard stuff really, I’m sure you’ve seen it all before.
I’d love to have a crack at this, but won’t have time before the winter settles in (northern hem.).
