[TESTING] Kodi 18 (Leia) builds for Vero 2 & 4K

I did an full “ungrade”, so I’m using right now the December release.

I’m wondering when these nightlies will become “beta”… not only the Kodi 18 but the OSMC kernel too.

Will that beta stage be “officially announced” to test new features or it will be just a … let’s say …“full March update/release to Kodi 18” ?

When Sam is happy that v18.1 on OSMC is ready to be rolled out it will become the stable release. (And repackaged as 18.x) It will them be rolled out to the users.
Nightly versions will still continue and when v19 gets branched the cycle will start over. Alpha, Beta, RC, etc.

A couple of minor things I found updating as per instructions in the first post;

1, I have multiple profiles (2 in total, Kids and Adults). Both profiles were set to use the skin Minimal.
After the update and reboot it switched the adult profile back to default OSMC and minimal isn’t available - reading up they’re stopping support at 17, so I’ve had to go with something else.
The odd part is the other profile is still running Minimal, somehow?

2, after update and reboot, Kodi defaulted to the highest possible resolution and my TV wouldn’t display the source… took me a long time to work through this but managed to get into a menu and drop the resolution one notch.

Not sure If the above issues are Kodi or OSMC related, but thought it’s worth sharing.

Note: When OSMC stable is released it will be based on 18.1. The Nightly builds are now at 18.2RC1 so in order to avoid confusion its time to bump the nightly releases to 18.8

This requires that you update your sources.list and point to gmc-19. (See first post) If you run the nightly 18.8 builds you will not automatically upgrade to 18.1 stable when it’s released (As the build number will be lower)

Update your sources.list

Nice! Does this mean there will be a stable update soon?

what are instructions for folks who wish to stop receiving nightly updates after 18.1 stable is released?

do we still need to update sources to receive nightly updates in the meantime until it is released?

thanks for all your work

@richy if I remember correctly, you just need to remove
deb http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18/public gmc-18 main

from your sources.list and hit
sudo apt-get update

And when the official updates arrived you just update the normal way on your Vero

If you add the new repo, you will stay on nightlies after the v18 stable release.

I’ve updated the OP with additional info.

If you leave gmc-18 in your source file you will no longer receive any nightlies. The next update you get will be the stable. (You can also delete gmc-18 from the file)

If you change to gmc-19 you will remain on 18.2 path and not receive the stable 18.1 when its released

Please do not force this crap on us. Please do not force enable these add-ons on every boot. Please do not prevent us from uninstalling them.

These are way too heavy and unstable to be a part of the built-in skin.
