Hi everyone, I’m sure I’ve trawled the forums to find this same issue and have had no joy.
This has been baffling me for 2 weeks.
I’ve had OSMC running on a RaspPi2 for at least 14 months. Started out running on an SD card but when that died I decided to install on an NFS share on my QNAP. This runs a little bit slower, e.g. startup & navigation, but otherwise worked fine for 12 months. 2 weeks ago my OSMC went into a perpetual Sad Face loop. Power cycling did nothing.
Decided to do a fresh install, installed the boot stuff onto the SD card and told OSMC that I want to install on an NFS share. This worked, however I could not download any add-ons/updates through the Kodi interface and going to system information showed I was not conencted to the net.
If I SSHd to the device, I had full internet access, I even tried updating to the Krypton release. I had no DNS resolution issues vie SSH at all, it was just in the Kodi interface that was reporting no internet connection.
I tried all of the above steps on 2 different Pis with no difference. I’m a network administrator by trade, so I know it’s not a network issue/IP config problem, as evidenced by having full internet access via SSH.
Interestingly, today I tried again, with 2 different Pis, even tried a different IP address and still Kodi reports no internet connection when I install to an NFS share. As a leap of faith, I did another install to the SD card this last time and it can connect to the internet.
Long story short, when install to NFS I can’t access the net through Kodi, but if I install to SD card it works fine.
Does anyone have any advice as to what I could try next?
One thing I did notice, with the NFS install, “conmann services” didn’t know about the ethernet interface, even though System Information in Kodi knew the network settings of the interface.
