Odroid XU4 doesnt support Kodi 18

Unread post by jmircha » Thu Feb 14, 2019 5:45 am

I need your help to solve this problem: no operating system on Odroid XU4 supports kodi 18 (Leia).

I have tried:
- Ubuntu (all versions), with result: problem with dependencies "unmet".
- Android (all versions), with result: problem "package parse error".
- Debian (all versions), with result: no kodi package "ppa" available.

What is the problem? SW or HW? any evolution expected for Kodi 18 support?

Thank you.

Ubuntu 18.04
You can install dependencies as required.
You can also use this image from here viewtopic.php?f=98&t=32173 it has a good howto for install

No, you have there a compile guide for Kodi.
That Kodi there is compiled for gbm (console) usage, not x11. So depends how you wanna use Kodi.
You can always wait for an official release.

Official Android Image can't run Kodi, it need Android 5.0 or higher.

try unofficial image from this link.

viewtopic.php?f=94&t=28622
LineageOS-15.1 Android 8.1 Oreo for ODROID-XU3/XU4

You can download Kodi APK from official site.

Wait 1~2 months until @oversun will release ODROID compatible Kodi 18 patches.

Kodi 18 works great for me on both wayland (Gnome) and drm using the v4l2-m2m codec.
I use it mainly for watching movies using the official Kodi plex addon.
What's left for Oversun todo?

For X11 it's better to wait for Oversun's version of Kodi 18, but you could pretty much follow that guide viewtopic.php?f=98&t=32173#p235249 without those two cmake switches -DCORE_PLATFORM_NAME=gbm -DGBM_RENDER_SYSTEM=gles and without modify the kernel

Hi:

So nobody has installed Kodi 18 (Leia) over Ubuntu on Odroid XU4 (ARMv7), and my only option is waiting... Who is "Oversun"? Could "he" help me? When?

Only me have this problem? I only want to use my Odroid XU4 (100$) with Kodi NetFlix addon and Amazon Prime Video Addon...

We've been trying to tell you :)
Many have installed Leia on Ubuntu on XU4. Here's a clip I did almost 1 year ago, when I installed Leia the first time (when it was still in development):

You can see Netflix is working very nicely on Kodi 18 on Ubuntu on XU4.

In short, you need to compile Kodi yourself from sources on github, like many of us did - and the link above is an example on how to do it. But you need to change the compile options to suit your needs - do you want Kodi on console, on X11 or on Wayland? Each has different options. If you want to have a pre-packaged ready-to-install Kodi, please wait for an "official" release.

I would like compile Kodi 18 over Ubuntu 18.xx, X11 mode (like you), do you have the method (step by step) to do this?

Thank you, and I apologize the inconveniences, my experience on Linux compilation is too shot.

Use Kodi 17.6 for a couple of months while Oversun spends some time to develop the Kodi 18.

Alsa is an audio driver so either install the development package for Ubuntu (usually "sudo apt-get install alsa-dev" or something similar) or see if there's a pulse-audio configuration option in CMake.

I would suggest you to use https://mirrors.kodi.tv/addons/krypton/ ... eamhelper/ together with inputstream.adaptive, it will download the latest libwidevine for you and will check for updates

Since Leia doesn't support x11 EGL anymore, we can't make an official Kodi package for the Ubuntu Mate image.
You have to use a minimal Ubuntu image with AreaScount's packages.

Why you didn't follow the Netflix install guide ? over here viewtopic.php?f=98&t=34076

You have to skip the part with inputstream.adaptive and script.module.inputstreamhelper because it's already installed and start right over with sudo apt-get install python-pip

kodi start script is in /usr/bin and not anymore in /usr/local/bin if you need to edit it

RG and good luck

Yes, if you read the instruction it is written that libwidevinecmd.so is downloaded and installed, this is needed to view DRM copy protected video streams in a legal way

fdisk and parted error is probably because you have to add /sbin to path, it's all in the instructions

Hi

Did you add permissions for umount and mount in sudoers file under /etc/sudoers ?

This is how my sudoers file looks

Code: Select all

#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of
# directly modifying this file.
#
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
#
Defaults	env_reset
Defaults	mail_badpass
Defaults	secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# User privilege specification
root	ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo	ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
odroid ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/umount, /bin/mount, /sbin/losetup, /sbin/fdisk, /sbin/parted, /sbin/modprobe
# See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives:

#includedir /etc/sudoers.d
With this inputstreamhelper should be able to download, unpack and install libwidevine.so, this is the line you should have added odroid ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/umount, /bin/mount, /sbin/losetup, /sbin/fdisk, /sbin/parted, /sbin/modprobe AND you have to run kodi as odroid user !

Regarding the error that you sometimes you get a Netflix error when you click on it, this is probably because amazon plugin is enabled the same time, the amazon plugin is not very good and takes a lot of CPU usage, because it always updates the database in the background, especially when you start kodi, either disable amazon plugin or just relax and wait 5-10min after kodi starts before you start Netflix

Hi:

Yes, I use this line:

odroid ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/umount, /bin/mount, /sbin/losetup, /sbin/fdisk, /sbin/parted, /sbin/modprobe

Without /sbin/parted, so, could be the problem?

But, why I didn’t see any error on the installation of libwidevine.so over Amazon add on?

Thanks.

The line should be the second last line, underneath all other commands in this file and above the last line

I am not sure about parted I am not in the near of my odroid now to check, but I would try it and to see more errors you have to enable debug log inside Kodi.

There is an elec iso somewhere in this forums, but I don't know if he provides Netflix

Setup this for your own is time consuming, yes (more or less) but you learn a lot and you are much happier when it works as it would when you use a finished iso and when it's working I have another trick for you

Hi:

I had advances:

- Amazon: i got install this addon, maybe the problem was on the "sudoers", so i use this line (complete):

odroid ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/umount, /bin/mount, /sbin/losetup, /sbin/fdisk, /sbin/parted, /sbin/modprobe

But i had an issue with the Widevine CDM installation (error libxxx.so), so i must install "libnss3-dev".

- NetFlix: this addon doesn't work, with Amazon addon disable. When i entry on the addon, i see the profile folder, but inside it only is (nothing):

    I also have this symptom sometimes, if I remember correctly it's a timeout to reach Netflix network, you have to go back on menu hierarchy and retry it two or three times, it happens only on startup

    I got it!!!

    I have installed Netflix and Amazon addons, and both work fine. About NetFlix, I think that the problem was in the version, cause I had an error with your “Netflix repository” (no connection). I used the zip file downloaded from github official web. I use the Netflix 0.13.22.

    But I need your help, because when I use the rc.local file in order to execute kodi on the boot, I have a problem: on the kodi on/off bottom I only have one option (Exit), where are the other normal options (reboot, shutdown, etc)? Any problem with rc.local? Permission?

    When I execute kodi from console, manually, I don’t have that error.

    Thanks.

    Here's my LibreELEC fork for the XU4: viewtopic.php?f=96&t=34647

    There are images with Kodi available for the time being.
