PfSense 2.1.4 on Virtualbox can't load kernel



  • Dear All,

    start by making:

    • I've pfSense-LiveCD-2.1.4-RELEASE-i386-20140620-1259.iso
    • I've developed oauth2 authentication method for captive portal
    • I searched in the forum about this issue but I didn't find out any answer about it.

    I tried to edit index.php in \usr\local\captiveportal and I saved the iso too.
    when I throw the iso on virtualbox I receive the error:

    
    Unable to load a kernel!
    --
    Can't load 'kernel'
    

    My GOAL is show oauth2 as authentication method on captiveportal page.

    Please, could you kindly suggest me how to resolve this issue?
    Cheers
    SM

    Do not try to edit the .iso directly. Install from the .iso and edit the files in the target VM. You can't edit an .iso in-place like that and expect it to work properly.

    A USB memstick image would be able to be modified safely, but not an .iso file.



  • yep, you are right!
    Infact, it's need to connect via ssh after installation for changing captive portal source code.

    Thank you very much for your support.

    Cheers
