OSMC's June update is here with Kodi v20 - OSMC

This would surely be something particular to your installation as judged by the lack of reports of similar behavior from others. If this is an attempt to ask for help then I would suggest starting a new thread with debug logs attached.

Hi. I’ve a 3b+ as well and experienced random lock ups after updating to the June version. After trial and error it seems to be a kernel issue with the 5.15 version. Reverting to the previous 5.10 version solved the hangs for me.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc

Do you know how to reinstall it, when it has been purged by an update?

Here is my problem :

“sudo dpkg-reconfigure rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc
dpkg-query: package ‘rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc’ is not installed and no information is available
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files.
/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc is not installed”


Just checked and the server still has the package to download

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt list rbp2-image*
Listing… Done
rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc/now 5.10.78-7-osmc armhf [installed,local]
rbp2-image-5.15.83-3-osmc/unknown,now 5.15.83-3-osmc armhf [installed,automatic]

You can install it as a normal package

sudo apt-get install rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc   


I tried but it seems that something is missing :S

sudo apt list rbp2-image*
Listing… Done
rbp2-image-5.15.83-3-osmc/unknown,now 5.15.83-3-osmc armhf [installed,automatic]

sudo apt-get install rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc

I’ll try to examine my sources.list file.

@h_ramus @Dey_Dey
I’m about to downgrade my kernel to 5.10 just like you.
But I want to make sure before you had/have the same symptoms as me (random freezes after upgrading to June version) :

Thanks in advance

Hi Boulotaur,

Yes I think this seems to be quite similar.
It freeze when reading too much video (about 5h). And I can see a lot of kernel traces after reboot.
Everything was OK before June update yes.


The freeze usually happens after 5/6 hours
Thank you so much !

Sorry, you’re correct. Just tried to reinstall it and fails to download

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-

Reinstallation of rbp2-image-5.10.78-7-osmc is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.

Apologies but it seems only the latest kernel is available from the packages list. Alternatively, you could download an older kernel from the osmc server and install it with dpkg. Version 5.10.78-5 seems the latest archive from 5.10.


I’ll caveat that this likely not great advice but may help with your GPU lockups until a newer kernel version is available.

My dmesg would be full GPU resetting messages. Discussion on a previous similar issue in https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/3221.


The “https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/r/rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc/rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc_5.10.78-5-osmc_armhf.deb” package is installed and in use.

I’ll give a feedback as quick as possible.

Can I ask you how did you get the package rbp2-image-5.10.78-5 ready to install ?
I’m having the same problem as you right now “Unable to locate package rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc”

Of course!

I downloaded the package from link posted here (from the osmc apt repo) : https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/r/rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc/rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc_5.10.78-5-osmc_armhf.deb :

wget https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/r/rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc/rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc_5.10.78-5-osmc_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc_5.10.78-5-osmc_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg-reconfigure rbp2-image-5.10.78-5-osmc
sudo reboot

After more of 10 hours playing videos, there is no problem.
So I will continue with the 5.10.78-5 kernel.

Many thanks to @h_ramus !!!


Thanks again Dey_Dey
I just downgraded to version 5.10.78-5 with your help
(You might add the wget part in order to download the .deb ?)

I thought the installation process went really fast (with no errors though). I was expecting 10-15 minutes in order for the new image to install properly. Instead it ended up in 1 minute

And now I can’t help wondering if it DID install anything over the previous one
How would I know the 5.10.78-5 image is now actually running ?

uname -r

If manually downgrading the kernel solves this, I wonder about what is going to happen when OSMC publishes a kernel update.

Moreover, since this seems to be a widespread issue, may I suggest that OSMC team publishes an update downgrading the kernel until a fixed new kernel is available?

Raspberry PI 4B seems unaffected, though.

Widespread? I don’t remember when the 5.15 kernel was added to staging but it was quite a long time ago now. It has been in the general release for something like 6 weeks now and the only reports of lockup issues allegedly relating to the kernel has been from just a few people in the last couple of days. Your statement seems a bit hyperbolic to me. To force a downgrade on a very large user base without knowing what the issue is, how widespread, or even if it’s the kernel at fault, is a pretty bold action. Please don’t take this as me being dismissive of issues anyone may be experiencing, as that is not my intent. The fact is, every significant update comes with it a situation where some users will end up having a problem with something. The dev team makes their best effort to eliminate this as much as possible, but no one could ever stop that from happening.


Understood. Thanks for replying to my message.
