We have a raspberry pi in our office which boots directly into the browser using a line in the .profile file as follows
xinit /usr/bin/chromium --kiosk --incognito internalsite.internal.com
And a login bypass by changing the following line in the /etc/inittab file
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1
1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f pi tty1 </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1
This works fine apart from the fact that when it boots up it displays a page can not be found message.... If we press f5 it loads the page correctly....
I have setup the exact same thing on a pi in my house and it works fine and the browser boots up and displays the specified web page perfectly.
The site is internal so does not go through a proxy.
What could be causing this?
