Kodi not starting after april update

Hi there,

After the april update Kodi does not start up automatically anymore. The pi 1 works fine.
The Kodi log (5 last lines):

21:16:59 37.688992 T:3024622128 NOTICE: start dvd mediatype detection

Then it stops, Kodi has not started and the screen is black,
No addons running
Skin is confluence
No problem before the update.

Starting Kodi manually works: mediacenter start

Kodi runs.


No issue today updating from June 2015 release on a raspberry pi 1 A

Full logs please. Your small snippet doesn’t show anything of use.

grab-logs -A from SSH if Kodi won’t start.

Done, http://paste.osmc.io/axuripaber

What happens if you rename ~/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml?

wow, got the osmc skin. That’s what happens. :grinning:
Kodi runs again. You think guisettings.xml was corrupt?
Your the best! ActionA! Thanks.

So which skin where you using before you moved guisettings.xml?

Skin is confluence

That’s really odd. So if you now activate confluence again does it work (even after reboot)?

Yes, odd indeed. Had to redo the configuration twice, selecting skin confluence and so on. After reboot the first time it lost all settings. The second time it worked.
The problem started when the april update was ready, so the weird behavior must had something to do with the broken mirror.

I had the same problem FYI: After update only sadface screen on startup. Saw this thread and also renamed xml file, which at least resurrected Kodi, albeit without all my configurations. :confused:

same problem,renamed guisettings.xml and it works
but if i set skin to arctic zephyr and reboot kodi not starting again

I believe Arctic Zephyr is not officially compatible with Kodi Jarvis suggest to check on the forum http://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=221

Try to move back your backed up guisettings.xml and just change the <skin>XYZ </skin> to <skin default="true">skin.osmc</skin>

Yes. This exactly: Arctic Zephyr. Was working on changing the skin at runtime, but dies again on reboot.

Latest version of the skin does not solve this issue. It’s very annoying.
