I recently had a major change to my network environment and I noticed on rebuilding that OSMC is extremely fragile in its boot sequence if the database or sources can’t be found, with no helpful timeout messages. I’ve now encountered a new problem that seems to be related.
I just tried to change the folder location for screenshots, which currently has an nfs path to a network location that no longer exists. Guess what happens when I select the menu item to change the location? Kodi just hangs, doing nothing useful. On a Vero it seemed to eventually timeout, on a Pi it seems to have crashed.
I guess it is trying to get to the location that does not exist, by why on earth would it be set up that way? Is there a workaround I can use in the meantime?
