Install on Debian 8 but how to start it

Hello i have in KVM a new Server. Debia 8 basic installation, no Grafik!
then i have done

For Debian 8.0 run the following as root:

echo ‘deb /’ >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/osmc-installer.list
apt-get update
apt-get install osmc-installer
You can add the repository key to apt. Keep in mind that the owner of the key may distribute updates, packages and repositories that your system will trust (more information). To add the key, run:

apt-key add - < Release.key

with Telnet it is possible to acces the server, but how to start OSMC?

have a nice day

That APT repository is for the OSMC installer. It is for imaging OSMC on to a device. OSMC is not just an application so it cannot be installed via APT


Thanks a lot for your very fast feedback.
so there must be some more as install instruction somewhere on the page :wink:
will have to look if i find it.

It depends what device you are trying to install it on.

It sounds like you want to install it on a desktop. This is not possible yet, but probably will be by next month.

You won’t be able to install it as an application however, you will do so via an ISO


Hello sam
thanks again for your fast feedback.
you are right i wished to install it on a virtuell server which should then work as a Media Center for my Local LAN.
i tryed to install kodi with apt-get install kodi this worked on the beginning but on the end i got some error and the virtuell server was dad!

have a nice day

OSMC won’t work properly in a VM


ok Thanks for your help
