~30x /usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /var/run/lirc/lircd

When viewing ‘htop’, there are around 30 instances of:

/usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /var/run/lirc/lircd

running. Can anyone explain me why this is and if any harm is done killing all of them?

Well “killing all of them” would not harm your body but maybe it would harm your mind as your mediacenter (which is kodi) would stop working if you kill all it’s processes.

Guessing your question is why is it more than one process the answer is that the process will be spawned while it is still only the single application that is running

htop shows an entry per thread. kodi has about 30 thread running. Don’t kill them unless you want kodi to exit.
