Kodi log error in the log file

I’ve been making logs for a scraping issue, but in the logs in the Kodi log section it says Kodi log error and doesn’t actually provide any logs…

Examples of this are:

Both were meant to be logs for the scraping issue.

Anyone have an idea what’s causing this problem, so I can fix it to get logs to help solve my other problem!

Whats the output of ls -lah .kodi/temp/

The output is:

osmc@osmcveroplayroom:~$ ls -lah .kodi/temp/
total 1.3M
drwxr-xr-x 5 osmc osmc 4.0K Oct 24 08:13 .

This looks ok. What happens if you try

grab-logs -X
paste-log .kodi/temp/kodi.log

The grab logs one gives:

osmc@osmcveroplayroom:~$ grab-logs -X
Logs successfully uploaded.
Logs available at https://paste.osmc.tv/pojekidavi

The paste log gives

osmc@osmcveroplayroom:~$ paste-log .kodi/temp/kodi.log

Any further clue why the logs aren’t giving a Kodi log?

I just removed some add-ons and repositories that I forgot I had, and shouldn’t have had, so here’s a fresh log which still has the Kodi log error.


Not really especially as upload via paste-log works. Maybe enable debug logging then try to upload via MyOSMC and after that upload via the paste-log command maybe can see something in there.

OK, I’ve done a few things today to look into this again:

Today I completely reinstalled OSMC on my Vero, so everything was completely new and clean.
I then updated to the latest version, and went about setting up wifi, customising the osmc skin, adding sources, connecting to the network mysql library. So, nothing out of the ordinary.

I then went to scan a particular file that I was having problems with getting scanned in (that issue is in another thread) and it didn’t, so I thought I’d get the logs for that.

Carried out the usual logging process, uploaded logs to here via myosmc:
and the kodi log error is still there at the end

however, I then did the
paste-log .kodi/temp/kodi.log
suggested above (I didn’t do the grab-logs -X first though, not sure if those two are tied together) and got the following log which doesn’t look like it has a kodi log error as I can see some stuff that looks relevant to what I was doing in the debugging process.

Can you confirm if the second log has the relevant info for a debugging process, and if so, why on a brand new clean install does the myosmc log upload not work or whatever is going wrong?


My gut feel is OSMC Uploader stumbles across the non standard character that also is your scarpping/database issue in the other thread
The 100.S02E11.Coup de Gr\�ce.mkv')
I assume when you fix that filename then OSMC log uploader will also work again.
