I have been trying to install OSMC on three different USB flash drives (including a new one I just purchased) and while the install works fine, the system doesn’t boot after install and I’m stuck on the “sad smiley” screen.
Well I am still struggeling to understand the real problem here. So can you confirm that the installation guess through and you can access the ATV via SSH but Kodi is not starting?
If that is the case I suggest you just upload full logs via grab-logs -A so that we can check what might be wrong
I’m also struggling to understand the issue, I’m starting to suspect some kind of hardware issue on my ATV. This is the result of grab-logs -A
osmc@osmc:~$ grab-logs -A
grep: /var/log/apt/term.log: No such file or directory
grep: /var/log/apt/history.log: No such file or directory
df: cannot read table of mounted file systems: No such file or directory
Unable to write temporary log to /var/tmp/uploadlog.txt
The volume must switch to read-only at some point during installation, and none of the commands seem to unlock that volume…
At this stage I’m pretty sure the usb sticks are not at fault unless I’m exceptionally unlucky (I’ve tried a total of 7), I’ve formatted the flash drives on OSX & Windows machine. I can’t think of anything else.
Still not getting access to /etc/fstab ith sudo nano /etc/fstab I can edit but not save… “ERROR writing /etc/fstab: Read-only file system”
what’s the full command chain ?? after I booted ??
ssh email@example.com (pw: osmc)
sudo mount -o remount,rw / i assume “/” it has to be “/dev/sda1” in HDD install ??
… then fstab is not writeable… and subsequently /devsda2 can not be mounted by “sudo mount /dev/sda2 / -o rw”
as not included in fstab…
