We have Kodi 18 in our official CoreELEC builds. But this is just an OS for mediacenter.

In case anyone wants that solution. Raybuntu, I can't bring myself to use an OS without a package manager (apt/dnf/pkg), but I appreciate the work put into ELEC builds because they likely benefit me indirectly, so thanks.

Sure. But we do have a pkg manager using entware ;)

You'll probably have to build it yourself

Is there a multiboot? to have 2 different SOs in the same microsd?

What's the equivalent output of

Code: Select all

apt list | wc -l
62460
?

Lol yeah I get it. I didn't want to convert you I was just stating that we do have something. Of course not as much as Debian.

http://bin.entware.net/aarch64-k3.10/

This is the repo we use.

curl -s http://bin.entware.net/aarch64-k3.10/ | grep -c ipk

not to bad, that really for kernel 3.10?

Ah that's when they upgraded from "like 3".

Historically from OpenELEC we only had a few addons like TVH server, docker that could be installed from within kodi but it wasn't "like 3". But it's pretty hard to maintain them using the current buildsystem. Entware adds a way to add a few more packages without the burden of support for a small project like ours. We do not have a lot of package maintainers like Debian does.
I don't know what they mean with k3.10 but most of the packages have nothing to do with the kernel.

But this is getting off topic here. Also it looks like AnjunaBeats is using CoreELEC now so my job is done here :D

Raybuntu & CoreELEC team - really grate work. I was amazed with ease of installation and professional touch of look & feel. Boot image, etc.

Would you be able to point us, poor guys stuck with traditional distributions to some guide on what's needed to get kodi working and starting properly on Debian/Ubuntu? I'm more after dependencies, any versions, patches? For sure there's Github, but some documentation or suggestions would be great.

Silly me, I've tried to run kodi via xinit on x11-legacy to skip install of other packaged and only to discover that x11 does not support N2 (missing drivers).
Tried to compile Kodi and failed.

Would be great if you could share your knowledge with community as it won't take away CoreELEC users, but will allow poor guys us myself and others to get Kodi running on their much needed standard distros.
Why do I need Kodi to run on standard distro?
N2 is powerful enough to replace my D620 and act as:
- firewall,
- nameserver,
- caching proxy, including SSL caching (yes, MITM in play for my home use - a lot of bandwidth sharing),
- NAS,
- docker for some testing,
- Dovecot IMAP server with Postfix,
- Samba backup for Windows based systems.
- backup destination with Borg for some other systems.

To get all of that functionality on CoreELEC, purpose built mediacenter type of OS would be an overkill.
Much easier is to get a bit trouble and get Kodi compiled and started on that unit as it sleeps for 99% of time.
Getting another N2 or Pi would be a waste of energy ;)

Hope that explains reasoning why I can't become convert.

Thanks in advance for some tips!

@Soleil:

Could you elaborate (in a separate thread) about use case, implementation details?

Sure, happy to share - good start with exact instruction is here:
https://blob.mypn.eu/thumbs-on-tunnels/

That was for Squid 3.5. For Squid 4.6 these days, there are some minor changes in configuration.
Happy to answer on questions and post clarifications.

Originally that was created for bandwidth savings, especially in case of a lot of systems downloading updates and recently CDNs moving to https even for basic news related images.
It is also interesting to see what your applications are silently doing in the background.

hint: a lot of Android/iPhone apps have certificate pinning, hence at the beginning it is a little bit of headache to decide which ones you want to allow and which ones not.

The setup I've is silently intercepting it, cause I've found that some apps ignore setting at Android system level and go straight to interface.

yah I had to add mesures to prevent malware injection via MITM, basicly anything you can cache with MITM is insecure and you should not be using anyway. But Upside-Down-Ternet is the fun example.

That's quite an interesting read. Once you're man-in-the-middle-ing I gues you can tweak video requests to reduce quality for youtube for instance.

But I guess your squid proxy needs a ton of ram, because a couple of youtube videos later your cache will be full...
