Received my vero today and i’m totally happy with it! But there’s one question, the one from the topic, how could i on one hand install the .xz or on the other hand converting it to .img. Think with dd, but without information, it’s too dangerous!
Could someone help me out pls?
Is there a specific reason you need to use your own image?
After building the target installer, you can write it to a USB or SD card.
i know that, but do i have to rename it for the installer to be recognized? Or just extract to usb?
Ok, got it
Are vero2 and 3 identical? Because in gmc-18 vero3 doesn’t exist!
Does it mean, i can’t build gmc-18 for vero3, or is there a way to do that?
Thanks for answering, i’ve meant building the git for vero3, need just a little hint.
Why are you trying to build it? It’s been pre-built for you.
Because i would like to go more into it, that’s all, compiling all my devices, if it’s possible, by myself.
Look at mediacenter-next-osmc package.
Not sure why you want to build your own image as you will end up with the same .deb file, unless you want to do some custom compiling.
If you really want to do it yourself though you check out this wiki with the steps:
(Still need to update the wiki for stretch but should be enough to get you going)
Thx for the information! I’ll give it a try.
Complains about libmariadbclient:
Package libmodplug-dev is already installed in the environment
Package libmpeg2-4-dev is already installed in the environment
Package libmpeg3-dev is already installed in the environment
Package libmariadbclient-dev-compat is not found on the system, checking APT
Can't find the package in APT repo. It needs to be built first or you need to wait for upstream to add it

Have you upgraded to stretch?
yes, i did, but i compile on my stretch workstation, which is amd64.
I’ve replaced jessie in the makefile through stretch later on for osmc-tc, but then the tc fails.

Try building on the vero3. Going to be a lot simpler and quicker.
now complaining about -lpthreads, and u were right, much faster on the vero!

A whole log might give some clues. A snippet unfortunately won’t.
