One thing I forgot to mention is I did the select all copy and paste of what you had wrote without noticing the "#after this you can update as usual again:" Then I just did the update line without closing the window and reopening it. I don't know if that could have messed anything up or not since it was in a different section or directory. I guess I can just start all over flash the old base image to my sd card boot it up then copy and paste it correctly? When it updates is it supposed to install kodi? Or leave Xbmc and I need to past in apt-get kodi-odroid line?

lines starting with a # are comments, and terminal will just ignore them, so there's no issue with that.
It will not update from xbmc to kodi. Kodi has to be installed manually.

Ok I've tested the update for the U3 and came across a few issues.
In fact it does upgrade from XBMC to Kodi, as I put that into setup-ogst-odroid.
I had some issues starting Kodi afterwards and when I checked into it I found it was complaining about the language which apparently was not found, but I could easily correct this with:

Code: Select all

sed -i "s?<language>English (US)</language>?<language>English</language>?" ~/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml
The issue with the missing items for the RCB is in fact the rcb_useOldAlignment value it's located in ~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/skin.confluence/settings.xml and needs to be set to "false".
After that I had no issues with Kodi anymore and everything was working as expected.

I'll update the image on the first page to the recent version of this image in a little bit, therefore you don't have to do these steps yourself.
But, if you can't wait, the above information should be enough to fix the image yourself.

Edit:
new version is uploaded and linked on the first page.

Kodi working fine...i see scrappers.
I have two more question.
How should works retroarch...if i run it from desktop, it runs like oldschool...
Image
If i run it from terminal with sudo it looks like this
Image
This one form sudo looks much user friendly but when i trying to update/load any core it refresh and nothing happens.
And the second question at the menu there is something like mame arcade emulator, when i trying to lunch it nothing happens, form terminal i have segmentation fault.

starting it from menu starts retroarch as user odroid (using the settings I prepared)
starting from terminal with sudo starts retroarch as user root (sudo = super user do -> super user = root) and with the settings for root (which are not configured by me).

It's just the setting what design you want to use and can be changed in the driver settings, I'm actually thinking about changing the design to the new one soon.
In the past the new design was very buggy and did not work correctly, but that was fixed some time ago.
bpbiszkopt wrote:but when i trying to update/load any core it refresh and nothing happens.
No surprise, the root user has no configuration for retraorch, the default config does not know where cores are located and such, don't use sudo, there's no point what so ever for useing sudo to start retroarch, it just makes your system more vulnerable to attacks.

Don't know about this, that's nothing I installed (at least it shouldn't).

I installed a xu4 fan on top of my u3 heat sink and plugged it in. Is there a way I can have it come on like you do the XU4 game station turbo build on my U3? The fan noise doesn't bother me at all.

it should do that automatically when needed... the U3 is much cooler than the XU4 therefore it's rarely needed.. and stays off most of the time.

I used to use this image years ago and remember it being excellent. Recently I've been trying to get this image running and for some reason whenever X starts it is an ungodly mess - it looks like huge slanting diagonal streaks, as if the rendering is trying to rending an image much too large.

Weirdly, the mouse cursor is rendered on top of this and works perfectly. I believe this is because Xorg renders the mouse cursor seperately? Once XBMC starts the mouse cursor disappears (I presume because it starts rendering it with the mali drivers) but the rest of the screen is still rendered in the same broken slanting horizontal fashion. The console works fine an renders normally. I cant get a working vesa or fbdev xorg config to test, but am sure it has to do with the armsoc drivers.

It seems to affect my system with both the 2015 and 2017 disk images.

It's not the system itself, as the console and boot process are fine, as are an android image I tested.

Does anyone else have this issue, and how do I fix it? What also I don't understand is how is this not affecting everyone using the image, as it does this to my system with the default settings?

Thanks for any light you can shed on the issue.

The U2/U3 officially only supports 720p and 1080p resolution, but thanks to armsoc framebuffer drivers other resolutions are possible as well, but not all will work.
So depending on your TV/Monitor the resolution might not be supported.

Yes it does.
poopins wrote:Once XBMC starts the mouse cursor disappears (I presume because it starts rendering it with the mali drivers) but the rest of the screen is still rendered in the same broken slanting horizontal fashion. The console works fine an renders normally.
Console renders in 720p. The U2/U3 comes with boot.scr files either for 720p or 1080p as 720p is more likely to support older TVs/Monitors it's set to 720p.
Console always renders in 720p while Desktop is on a "autodetect" from what your TV reports.
poopins wrote:I cant get a working vesa or fbdev xorg config to test, but am sure it has to do with the armsoc drivers.
vesa and fbdev are not supported, in fact aside from armsoc nothing will work.
poopins wrote:It seems to affect my system with both the 2015 and 2017 disk images.
My guess it's an issue with the TV/Monitor and not the board, so the image, either 2015 or 2017, does not matter as the driver did not change since then.
poopins wrote:Does anyone else have this issue
I can just say that it works fine on my Samsung TV in 1080p. I also used ODROID VU in 1080p mode which also works fine with the image.
poopins wrote:and how do I fix it?
Try to quit XBMC and do a system upgrade the system should use Kodi by now and no longer XBMC if it's all up to date.
Try open a terminal and type xrandr check the output interesting could be infos like "current" which gives you the current desktop resolution but also it might be interesting what other resolutions are reported that are claimed to be supported.
As the console is working, I guess 720p should work fine, so you can try (blindly) writing the following command in a terminal (NOT in the console under CTRL + ALT + F1! - You need to be on the Desktop for this to work):

Code: Select all

xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1280x720
This will switch the desktop resolution to 720p and maybe this is working better for you.
Also if you can try a different TV/Monitor.
poopins wrote:What also I don't understand is how is this not affecting everyone using the image, as it does this to my system with the default settings?
First, the U2/U3 is rarely used anymore, it's no longer produced for several years and people moved on to other systems, so the number of people still using this particular image is getting smaller and smaller.
Still that doesn't mean it's no longer working.. I have a U3 running right now using the same image and as I said, it's working perfectly fine on my side.

Excellent, that worked perfectly! It was the tv, it was outputting at some 1366 resolution. I ran it on a different tv which put it at 1080, added the xrandr command to the startup section for mate under the settings directory, and now it seems to be working fine.

Thank you!

I see in your repository that the latest chromium is 52. One of the sites I visit wants 55 or later.
Do you have that somewhere other than in the Chromium directory?

So I use Recalbox cause I don't like having to use a keyboard and mouse to change settings and what not. I just tried ogst today and already ran into a problem. For some reason I had to go to the desktop to be able to set up my wifi. When I restart the system I have no wifi in Kodi. I have to go back to the desktop to click on the top right to get WiFi back. Also I keep getting a pop up and have to keep putting in the password. What am I doing wrong why don't my wifi stay connected.

By default Linux uses a password store (keyring) to store passwords and configurations like SSID and such for WiFi in.
This keyring needs to be "unlocked" to use the data inside.
Normally this is done on "login" as you enter your username/password this is enough to verify you are you and the keyring is unlocked.
Since we use autologin for the desktop you are technically not authorized to use what's stored in the keyring. Therefore it asks for the keyring password when you try to connect to the WiFi and does not automatically connect.
Just so you know why this is happening.

What you can do:
Use an unencrypted keyring, means all login information for your WLAN is stored unencrypted in plain text, not recommend but doesn't really hurt either.
For this go to /home/odroid/.gnome2/keyrings/ and remove the keystore and keyring files in here (delete them or rename them whatever).
Restart the ODROID and setup your WiFi again (all settings are gone as we removed the keyring/store).
When you configure your settings for WLAN it will ask you to define a keyring password.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT SET UP A PASSWORD
leave this empty and you have an unencrypted keyring. From now on WiFi will connect automatically as the keyring does not need to be unlocked first.

maybe I can find a way to rebuild CEC4 for Debian Jessie in a way it works.
Let's see what I can find out.

Edit:
Just found that by default Exynos Support is disabled, I'm rebuilding it with activated support and will do a small test, if it works I'll upload the new version of libcec4 :)

well good news and bad news... I got CEC4 working, BUT this results into a broken version of Kodi, as both use different versions of libp8-platform.

Which means, in order to get both working, I probably have to completely rebuild Kodi as well.

Hm...

Code: Select all

ldd /usr/bin/cec-client | grep p8
        libp8-platform.so.2 => /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libp8-platform.so.2 (0xb6e79000)

Code: Select all

ldd /usr/local/lib/kodi/kodi.bin | grep p8
Kodi seems to be not linked at all to libp8...

nah that's some other things.. cec is loaded as a module.. but I think I figured it out now.
I could compile CEC with the same libp8-platform kodi was compiled against and it seems to work fine.

I've uploaded them right now, since the old packages didn't work anyway, there shouldn't be any harm in it.
Please let me know if the new packages work for you or not.

Using kodi 17.6, I see horizontal tearing, consistently in the lower frame of the picture, in scenes with horizontal panning. I had no tearing whatsoever with kodi 16. Does someone observe the same and/or found a solution to that?

I haven't tried Kodi 17.6 on the U3 yet, so I'm not sure if this is a general issue.
Sadly I personally find Kodi got worse with each new version.
I loved XBMC 13.2 it was stable, did what it was suppose to do and everything was working perfectly fine.
After that Kodi got worse and more unstable little by little.

Anyway.. I'm not sure if it will help you but you could try pinning refresh rates of videos to 60 Hz.
There's an option for that in Setup ODROID GameStationTurbo.. it helped reducing tearing on the XU4 which suffers from terrible tearing issues.

I see. I'll try to play around with the refresh rates. I noticed that there is less tearing in videos that play at 24hz. I have set the refresh rate in Mate to "auto", so some videos play at 24, others at 60hz or even 50hz (according to my TV). In the ogst settings, I've unpinned the refresh rate as that seemed to worsen the tearing.
