[TESTING] Kodi 17 test builds for Raspberry Pi


#1

** Kodi test builds for Raspberry Pi 1 & 2**

Based on the Kodi master Krypton (v17) and popcornmix’s newclock5

Warning

Kodi 17 is currently alpha and there is likely to be a lot of activity in the coming weeks/months.

Before proceeding make sure you have a backup of your Raspberry Pi. As these are test builds there could well be some unexpected problems.

Database upgrades could also be an issue. Please make a backup of the kodi database before installing, especially if you are running a remote MySQL database.

Recent builds (see below for older builds):

16.8-043, 19 March 2016: Based off OSMC commit (7d2f65c) and newclock5 commit (188ff0eeb)

There have been lots of changes as its been a while since the last build. I would advise you, as with all upgrades, to take a backup before you upgrade.

Was having libbluray compile issues. Thanks to @lilldeck for the assistance.

Update libcec library

RPi1:

wget http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc/rbp1-libcec-osmc-3.0.1-14.deb   -O /tmp/rbp1-libcec-osmc-3.0.1-14.deb && sudo dpkg -i /tmp/rbp1-libcec-osmc-3.0.1-14.deb 

RPi2:

wget http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc/rbp2-libcec-osmc-3.0.1-14.deb   -O /tmp/rbp2-libcec-osmc-3.0.1-14.deb && sudo dpkg -i /tmp/rbp2-libcec-osmc-3.0.1-14.deb

Update libbluray library

For this build you will need to install libbluray version 0.9.2-1

RPi1:

wget http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc/armv6l-libbluray-osmc-0.9.2-1.deb   -O /tmp/armv6l-libbluray-osmc-0.9.2-1.deb && sudo dpkg -i /tmp/armv6l-libbluray-osmc-0.9.2-1.deb

To confirm the libbluray version installed:

sudo dpkg -l | grep libbluray-osmc | awk '{ print $3 }'

To confirm the libcec version installed:

sudo dpkg -l | grep libcec-osmc | awk '{ print $3 }'

Installation

Before you install the test build you will need to have a working version of OSMC installed and you should ensure that it is up to date.

To install the test builds:

RPi1:

wget http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc/rbp1-mediacenter-osmc-19032016.deb   -O /tmp/kodi.deb && sudo dpkg -i /tmp/kodi.deb && sudo systemctl start mediacenter

Hi GMC

Thanks for this early test build of v17 although I won’t be able to test it for awhile want to get Jarvis running smoothly first.

What’s going to be the key features of v17?. I hear the video player is going to be separated from the GUI if I recall I hope this makes browsing the GUI while a video is playing a lot smoother.

2016 is looking good already :slight_smile:


#5

Here is a link for some of the features planned for Kodi - its still a bit early to say what will be in the next release but the road map will give you some idea.

http://trac.kodi.tv/roadmap


#6

VideoPlayer is the main change. Lots of info about the changes here:
http://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=240


#7

Bumping both of my OSMC installations to this is there any ETA on Retroplayer from Kodi Devs ?


#8

Apparently the input side of retroplayer is due imminently (after garbear comes back from skiing trip)
http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=251800

And the input side of retroplayer is actually the majority of the retroplayer code. I believe the aim is to get retroplayer merged for Kodi 17 (Krypton).


#9

Awesome thats one of the reason i wanna run the alpha and skip Jarvis altogether.

#14

Can you confirm OSMC skin is currently not working on v17?


#15

almost no skin works for version 17


#16

Using amber and seems to be ok. Also gave osmc skin a quick try and seems to load up. What issues are you having?


#17

they load but functions are broken like choosing scrapers etc but this is expected.

#19

Interesting when I change to OSMC just nothing happens I stay on Confluence.
Did you reinstall osmc skin after installing Kodi?


#20

Try restarting. I’m not sure if @gmc as picked my patch which fixes walkthrough status setting yet.


#21

The latest build (007) contains the walkthrough status patch.

I’ve tried changing from amber to osmc skin to confluence, back to osmc. No issues. Are there any errors in the debug logs?
