I want to set up a kiosk client based on Alix.1C
and Compact Flash storage. What is the best distribudion to use? I want basic XFCE desktop with Firefox and maybe Abiword and Gnumeric.
I am thinking of using Debian or Ubuntu (which is slower unfortunatelly, but recognizes audio by default) live USB images with persistent casper-rw (debian calls it init-ramfs) partition. I want to make some customizations in the "persistent" partition.
I plan to create another "rescue" partition that will overwrite the basic "factory default" settings to the casper-rw if the system breaks (hopefully the live system partition is write-protected even if on usb).
In the end I have to set up some boot parameter (syslinux or grub?) to reset the system to defaults.
Anyone has a suggestion where I should begin?
