[TESTING] Debian Stretch upgrade for OSMC


#124

I’m trying to install Samba. What’s wrong with this one?

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt-get install smb-app-osmc

Package smb-app-osmc is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'smb-app-osmc' has no installation candidate

#125

Any word on when this will become official?


#126

Hi,

Have you tried installing samba from the app store in MyOsmc?

Thanks Tom.


#127

It’s in stretch-devel.


#128

So it did the second time? If not, could you post debug logs, please.

Thanks for testing.


#129

seems to have worked the second time starting from scratch on a fresh install.


#130

No stretch-devel here. I’ve reverted back to stretch after upgrade,.

The stretch repository is not finished at this moment. So you need to stay on stretch-devel to install the package.


#132

Thanx, it helped! Removed -devel branch after samba installation just in case.


#133

You will not be able to get any upgrades/fixes from the stretch repo until it is officially released. Probably safer to stay on stretch-devel and turn off automatic upgrades so you can test any changes to the active repo (or not).

Hi
after upgrading I have a problem with VNC

sudo systemctl start dispmanx_vncserver.service

can not start it?

Do no know how to find root cause
Service status -l does not show much so.

dmesg -T | grep vnc does not show anything?

where to look?

Thanks T

#135

You would need to recompile VNC following the original instructions as the shared libraries have changed


#136

Hi , thanks for the fast response . ok will check

it worked. perfect.

just having another issue.
want to upgrade kodi leia from version: 17.8-120
but have this message:

Reinstallation of rbp2-mediacenter-osmc is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.

any hint here available?

strangewise it is running now again after update and upgrade…

so solved!!


#137

Upgraded RPI2 and RPI3 without any hiccups.


#138

vsftpd

I’m stumbling over the file /etc/ftpusers. So, there was some idea of a concept to allow only specific users ftp access in the past … but with the current /etc/vsftpd.conf all users can have ftp access and transfer their passwords in clear text via network by that.

Suggestion:
By OSMC-default restrict ftp access only to user osmc and disallow all others.

So append

userlist_deny=NO
userlist_enable=YES
userlist_file=/etc/vsftpd/user_list

to /etc/vsftpd.conf and create a new file /etc/vsftpd/user_list with content

# /etc/vsftpd/user_list: list of users allowed FTP access. See also /etc/vsftpd.conf
osmc

For future updates after Debian Sketch introduction don’t touch /etc/vsftpd/user_list, so a customized allowed ftp user list will survive.


#139

Not sure whether this is related to Debian Stretch upgrade!

Issue: When playing music the screensaver does not work here.
Using OSMC skin, set screensaver to 1 minute and disabled flag “Use vizualization if playing audio”.

Logs set playing “Rinding with the King”, waited for 3 minutes but not sure whether the screen saver works at all when debug logging is active:

Addition:
Found that the setting

Settings -> Player -> Videos -> Adjust Display Refresh Rate = Always

is causing the maloperation of the screensaver when playing music. Setting this to “On Start/Stop” solved it here. :open_mouth:
Sorry for the bandwidth.


#140

After first update i lost the hdmi cec control.
After second update there is only the sad face in a loop.


#141
  1. How do you define first and second update?
  2. Upload Logs with grab-logs -A
  3. You might want to try with a fresh Kodi folder mv .kodi .kodi_backup

#142

add jessie-devel to sources --> 1. update
removed stretch-devel from sources --> 2. update

#143

Until the final version is released you can not update without stretch-devel so if your update wasn’t finished you need to add stretch-devel and update to ensure all file are up to date.
