[TESTING] Debian Stretch upgrade for OSMC


#23

Got the update. All pass-through audio including TVheadend radio channel now working again. Brilliant! Thx a lot. :raised_hands::clap:


Issue with DTS-HD and Vero4K
#24

Yes for me too Thanks!

@sam_nazarko i still have issues with noise and plopping.

If i disable keep audio alive and send low noise then everything is fine less plopping but no noise.


#25

Started the update on my rpi2 b

Just a comment.
Maybe a warning message to tell the users that it’s not a normal update. Me it started downloading 44MB (samba and two packages) and when it rebooted started todo the big upgrade :slight_smile: and it looks like internet is shit tonight so it will take around 20 min to download.


#26

There is, in the first post.


#27

We will do this on the final announcement, but I’m not sure how many will read it unfortunately.

#28

He he went faster than i thought up and running now.
No problem so far.

#29

Understood. Let’s continue things in the appropriate thread.

#30

Is that a Jessie Leia system that you plan to upgrade? Results would be interesting as it failed for me.


#31

Tested in RPI3 with noobs, works fine, great job.

thanks


#32

Just a comment towards housekeeping after the update: ‘apt-get dist-upgrade’ suggest the following action after the update

...
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  armv7-libcrossguid-osmc bluez libapt-inst1.5 libasn1-8-heimdal libbind9-90
  libdbus-1-dev libdns100 libdpkg-perl libgif4 libgnutls-deb0-28
  libhcrypto4-heimdal libhdb9-heimdal libhdhomerun1 libheimbase1-heimdal
  libhogweed2 libhx509-5-heimdal libicu52 libisc95 libisccc90 libisccfg90
  libkrb5-26-heimdal liblwres90 libmicrohttpd10 libmysqlclient18 libnettle4
  libntdb1 libplist2 libpng12-0 libpsl0 libroken18-heimdal libssl1.0.0
  libwebp5 libwebpdemux1 libwebpmux1 libwind0-heimdal libxtables10 pkg-config
  python-dbus-dev python-ntdb
Use 'apt autoremove' to remove them.
...

A normal user controlling his OSMC just with the GUI will not be aware of this legacy issue nor can she/he clean up the situation without command line access. This housekeeping should be done by the update automatically, shouldn’t it?


#33

Normally this is done automatically when using update via MyOSMC after a successful upgrade


#34

Well, it hasn’t worked in my case. I used exactly this update method after a new installation of 2017.10-1 yesterday in the morning MEST but did the stretch update after the announcement of this thread.


#35

That’s why this is called TESTING


#36

Don’t want to annoy you; testing means the testers should mention obvious malfunctions … what I’ve done with this.


#37

Sorry, I mistook your post as a complaint, not a bug report.


#38

No; this thread is about just having upgraded to Stretch… Next step will be Stretch with Leia. As 17.6 was the last release of Krypton I expect we’ll be getting some beta’s en RC’s in the next months.


#39

Leia test builds are around for quite some time. The just need to be changed to stretch which is happening as we speak



#40

I specifically said beta’s and RC’s. Currently I don’t think these builds are even considered Alpha. They are “nightlies” or development builds. I prefer some more stable releases or I will get in trouble with my bosses (wife and daughter)… :laughing:


#41

Since upgrading the Pi, which shares its USB drive via nfs, nfs-kernel-server is not starting because it can’t find the share at /media/*. I assume this must be an ordering thing in systemd. Which units and/or udev rules are involved here?


#42

It’s not actually appropriate for My OSMC to autoremove packages. It’s up to the user to do this.

Only old kernels are pruned.
