Sorry for the noob question, but I read the forum thread on eMMC recovery

viewtopic.php?f=53&t=6173

and the manual on burning eMMC with SD-card/USB adapter.

I bought an eMMC (16 GB) with the XU4, what is the official way to get stretch on this eMMC?

Many thanks!
eMMC recovery is only required if you use an eMMC from a different board. For example if you had a ODROID C2 with an eMMC and now want to use the same eMMC on the XU4, then you have to do an eMMC recovery.
But if you're only switching from one OS to another OS then you don't need an eMMC recovery. You can simply flash the image you want with etcher or another software on the eMMC and you're good to go.

Alright I quit. I'm kind of disappointed. I've tried some video with kodi, it was so slow, and the image quality not that great. I'm just getting back on my rpi2, it worked just fine. Thanks a lot meveric for the time you took to help out !
The XU4 has far better video support than the RPi2, so if you have issues with the video, it's likely it's not working correctly.
You should check with the "o"-key if hardware acceleration is used or not.

Also if your main focus is to use Kodi and nothing else. I'd highly suggest using LibreELEC or CoreELEC for the XU4, as they are optimized for Kodi and offer a far better out of the box experience for Kodi.

Aha, OK, thank you again! So there is some hidden "secret juice" partition (kind of BIOS) on the eMMC, which is board-specific and the visible partition for the OS can be used like a simple SD-card?
kind regards

This only applies for the Exynos based boards, where there is some hidden stuff from Samsung on these partitions.. AmLogic doesn't have something like this.
It's rarely the case that you have to do this anymore.

I thought there was a technical reason for /boot being FAT32. So I could e.g. turn it into an EXT4 partition without any issues (besides the need to update UUIDs and whatnot)?
I'm not sure about this, as the uboot must support booting from ext4 as well, and since i'm using the uboot from hardkernel I can not tell if ext4 boot is supported from uboot or not.
Thanks. Will leave it as is then. I already resized the /boot partition so I can keep a few kernels around, that's enough for now.

Hi again!

I was browsing this here

https://oph.mdrjr.net/meveric/images/Stretch/

..and found a RC2 from 30-03-2019 and a release 1.0 dated 2018. Is the RC2 stable enough to be used for a NAS (MD RAID, samba, nothing more), or should I take something else? In principle a JeOS would be enough, no desktop needed, I guess....
kind regards

Just a last try, as I am not sure how Kodi scans for CEC devices:

Code: Select all

ln -s /dev/cec0 /dev/CEC

The RC2 is fine there are some minor issues if you want to start right away with WLAN without setting the system up with LAN first, but aside from that the system should work as any other Debian Image should work.

Hi,

Do you think you could add serviio media server to your repository?

https://serviio.org/
Serviio is a free media server. It allows you to stream your media files (music, video or images) to renderer devices (e.g. a TV set, Bluray player, games console or mobile phone) on your connected home network.
I use gerbera for streaming music as it's a good dlna server. But I prefer serviio as a video streamer.
Did you ever find the time to repackaging gerbera?

Anyway thanks for your hard work.

Serviio seems to be closed source source, so no I don't think there's a way to port this to ODROIDs.
It might run through x86 emulation, but I'm not sure.

gerbera i've seen is in Debian Buster, so I could try backport it to Stretch. Let me see what I can find out.

I think serviio is a java application at least the tar only seems to contain .jar files. I guess I should just give it a try, assuming I can install java?
I think you already had a go with gerbera and maybe added it to your repo, but I think there were some manual configuration issues that maybe stops a package installation?

Ok, that was quite easy, I've created the backport from Debian Buster to Debian Stretch:
viewtopic.php?p=253000#p253000

I don't know how nice it plays with the version I created earlier, so maybe it would be best to remove the other version first.

If it's really just a java application, then yes installing openjdk and using "java -jar <JAR-FILE>" should be all that is needed.

Yes, the manual steps should no longer be needed with the version from Debian Buster.

Serviio works with no problems. Remember to install serviio requirements: default-jre (openjdk), ffmpeg, x264, dcraw

Here is the supervisord configuration to start it on boot:

Code: Select all

[program:serviio]
command = /path/to/serviio install folder/bin/serviio.sh
process_name=serviio
user = username
autorestart = True
Thanks for you help and advice.
