OSMC update to Buster

#1

I just accidentally upgraded my OSMC on Vero 4k to Debian Buster and It seems fine. Will we have this update officially soon?

#2

Debian Buster isn’t supported and we still build using a Stretch toolchain.

I don’t think this will work properly.
We will update to Buster early next year

It would be quite interesting to understand how such a thing could occur on accident?

I was trying to update a single package from Buster repo, by setting a pin priority to it. I didn’t do that and removed the pin config of apt at the end, but I forgot to remove the sources.list.d entry.

Out of curiosity: which package was this?

#7

That was rclone, because the version in Stretch is not integrated with Nextcloud.

#8

Having a newer mediainfo is another reason to pull some packages from Buster.

oldstable: 0.7.91-1 
stable: 18.12-2 

The version available for the Vero4k prints nothing and exits 1 for most of the files.

It will only print nothing on files over 4GB.
