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


#991

Is that not a full log that i’ve posted?

#993

I’ll look at pasting full logs later, but thought it worth mentioning that I’ve just tried this test build and although all the basics work perfectly for me (great work!) I can’t launch any of compiled emulators, all that I tested produce this error in the logs:

WARNING: Unable to resolve: game.libretro.so.1.1.0 ADDON_CreateEx, reason: /usr/lib/kodi/addons/game.libretro/game.libretro.so.1.1.0: undefined symbol: ADDON_CreateEx

Not finding a symbol sounds like a version mismatch somewhere? Is this an issue in the build, or something due to my upgrade?

[Update]: On further research this WARNING probably has nothing to do with my issues as this post from xbmc from two days ago hints that it’s literally just a warning: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/15454

So my problme: I get a black screen and no other useful information when a launch a ROM, I can exit with the back/escape button. Is there something else I need to set up other than enabling the emulator for the rom?


#994

Note: There are still some issues with osmc.skin. I found the problem and will be pushing out a new build later today

#995

just push out the official release. osmc-skin is unnecessary anyway …


#996

Not for a lot of people it isn’t.
The official release isn’t stable yet. That isn’t related to the skin


#999

Oh dear I skipped reading before updating. Downgrading the skin worked previous build, but latest build it doesn’t help for some reason.


#1000

Just wait for the next build which should finally have all problems solved.


#1001

Hello @gmc! Thanks for these great builds!

When upgrading to release 411 I no longer can load VNSI plugin. The logs have this error:

root@TVStuaosmc:/home/osmc/.kodi/temp# cat kodi.log | grep vnsi
08:20:47.793 T:4066550368 NOTICE: ADDON: pvr.vdr.vnsi v3.6.2 installed
08:20:51.932 T:3946836720 ERROR: Unable to load /usr/lib/kodi/addons/pvr.vdr.vnsi/pvr.vdr.vnsi.so.3.6.2, reason: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have the full log if needed. When reverting to relase 410 the problem is solved. All releases newer than this (to date) the VNSI plugin does not load.

After reverting I need to manually enable the PVR VNSI plugin, but then it works.

#1005

Update failed - I understand you are fixing it.


#1006

New build uploaded. Give it an hour to sync to the mirrors.


#1007

Hello @gmc, i enabled debugging today and updated to 417 release and now it all works. :slight_smile: So whatever happened in the last couple of releases it has fixed it again. No logs needed I guess. Thanks!


#1008

Hello

can you recommend an update? I have my vero for a few days and there is version 17.6 on it! is it the 17.8 or version 18?


#1009

If you wait a few days you will get the stable v18 build automatically.

Sam


#1010

thx, i still wait :star_struck:


#1011

Just to name some issues I get with these builds until now:

  • Kodi doesn’t remind the position when resuming the play in video files (I get video files from a DLNA server).
  • VC-1 doesn’t work.
  • A subset of x265 files (anime low bitrate) doesn’t work neither (some do some don’t).
  • Like other ones have been experiencing in the regular version the sleep doesn’t work at all, it just wakes up few seconds after the sleep is pressed (always… I also think it’s due to lircd).

#1014

In the past couple of weeks I’ve been using the gmc Leia test builds more heavily, as I moved to the Vero 4k+ for daily use.

I make very heavy use of PVR - in particular tvheadend.

My experiences have been mainly positive, but I have noticed that a couple of PVR recordings fail to play correctly. The problem is also the same if I copy the RAW .ts file to the Vero4K+ and play from local storage. The video sometimes stops completely, stutters badly, or goes out of sync with the audio. Also if I try to Step Forward/Step Backward in one of the problematic recordings, then the picture completely freezes and never returns to normal.

I trimmed a 60 second snippet from a problematic recording of Emmerdale using ffmpeg - this is ~57MB in size, so I could upload it somewhere if required.

Here is a debug log from me playing this 1 minute ts file: https://paste.osmc.tv/emozoparut

This same raw ts file plays back fine on my other kodi installations:

  • Generic HTPC (VDPAU) - Kodi 17.6 - LibreELEC 8.2.5
  • RPi3 - Kodi 17.6 - LibreELEC 8.2.5
  • Android Samsung S6 Phone - Kodi 18.0
