One click is all it takes!
Important! Before your start
Mandriva Kiosk requires a certain system configuration to ensure compatibility. Please read these requirements carefully before you use Kiosk. If you have a doubt, send your questions to kiosk-support_at_mandriva.com.
Note that, for the moment, available packages are only for 32 bits architectures. Some pretty large software bundles are available on Kiosk, so a broadband Internet connection is recommended.
1. You need a fully updated Mandriva Linux 2006.0 (Official) distribution.
Only Mandriva One, Discovery/Lx, PowerPack, PowerPack+, Free and Mandriva One Special Club Edition are supported. Mandriva Linux 2007.0 is not yet supported. Cooker, Community (eg. Club Xmas Edition) and Legacy versions (2005, 10.1, etc.) are not supported.
2. You need to update these 4 packages
Simply click on the packages, choose "open with software installer" and once the installer shows up, choose "install". Warning : these updates are mandatory for Kiosk to function correctly.
