Tried the upgrade to the test kernel… Put the line into the sources.list (and saved with ctrl+x and y), ran the command - everything like always - , but it outputs only this:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
And after the reboot the kernel version is still: Linux osmc 3.14.29-51-osmc… What’s happening here?
Any ideas how to force the upgrade to the test kernel - as the sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot with deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch-devel main added to /etc/apt/sources.list doesn’t seem to work here for some reason?
That’s the kernel version. Wed Feb 14 23:32:25 is the release date and time. 3.14.29-51 would be the current stable version, released on Tue Jan 2 09:35:33.
Tried a manual reinstall of 3.14.29-57 now. It seems 3.14.29-57 was correctly installed before (I seem to have left the devel source in my sources.list) and had it downgraded to 3.14.29-51 when deleting the line and running sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot again… I don’t know. A bit of confusion here.
sudo apt-get install --reinstall vero364-image-3.14.29-57-osmc did the trick. I’m on Linux osmc 3.14.29-57-osmc #1 SMP Wed Feb 14 23:32:25 UTC 2018 aarch64 GNU/Linux now
WAIT! I think there’s something missing in the build in stretch-devel. I can get it working properly with flac 5.0 and the Sense & Sensibility clip using a mediacenter deb @sam_nazarko sent me but it looks like the published version is different in some way.
It’s in internal version package which was not published at all. With current
vero3 kernel 3.14.29-57
you only have the first patch available which maps 5.1 channel audio to PCM 5.1 or better 3/2.1.
Sorry folks for this confusion, the developers have to fiddle out what went wrong when the actual development stretch was published. Please, wait for news.
