I have a Rasberry Pi 2 Model with 16G Sandisk SD Card
USB 2.4GHz dongle (for wireless remote control)
USB to SATA adapter
Build: OSMC running Kodi 16.1 compiled 29 Oct 2016
I’m also running a Webiopi server:
(Webiopi used as a separate media centre, audio output via C-Media USB sound card)
I have also installed Python3, wiring Pi, mplayer,vlc, eboard, mpc, mpd and some linux utils,
lsof, grc, ccze, htop, nmap
Everything has worked flawlessly since about June 16, I never turn OSMC off due to its low power consumption. Also have a SATA hard drive for storage which i connect to with sshfs or sftp.
After transferring two file to my hard drive from another linux machine, I notice the kodi screen had
dimmed and not responding to CEC commands from a TV remote or my wireless keyboard.
I could access via SSH so unmounted the hard drive and rebooted. Now Im stuck with an alternating
white sad face on blue background which alternates to grey, then bluw with smiley face.
I still have access via ssh and ssh -X
So far I’ve tried:
sudo dpkg --reconfigure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
My sdcard / is RW and not full, I have tried moving
osmc/.kodi to osmc/.kodibak and rebooted, but still have sad face.
What I have have found is that if I access OSMC via SSH and start kodi with
at the command prompt, then kodi starts and displays on my TV screen with the confluenec
skin, but if I try to play or stream any media, then the sad screen appears again,
I note that the pastebin has many entries with:
root : user NOT in sudoers ; TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=osmc ; COMMAND=/usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /var/run/lirc/lircd
Nov 01 07:36:04 osmc mediacenter: root is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported
The contents of /etc/sudoers.d/osmc-no-sudo-password

Thanks in advance, sorry for long post.
