Just received my Vero4K. Wow, what a difference with my RPi2. I was quite happy with the performance but the Vero4K just blows it away.
That aside. I wanted to install hyperion on the Vero4K so I can get my Ambilight/Boblight installation up and running again but the usbtv-driver is missing. Is it possible to include it in the next update? Or how can I easily compile it myself? I tried it via the vero-sources but get a compile error: gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-mgeneral-regs-only’
I’ve compiled hyperion with AMLogic and V4L support. Still looking howto configure the amlogic grabber so I hope that one works out of the box.
QT5 still seems impossible (Kodi fails when QT5 is installed) so I went back to QT4.
AMLogic grabber works as a charm. Working great on the Vero4K. Now I’m only missing the usbtv driver to get the V4L grabber running.
Also found this thread (OSMC and Hyperion - #17 by penfold42) which mentions support was added to hyperion-ng. AFAIK the new version requires QT5 which I never got working on OSMC. Kodi crashes when QT5 is installed.
Installed all packages needed to compile hyperion. It pulled in MESA and a lot of other packages. After successful compilation I removed everything and just installed the packages/libraries needed to run the hyperion-binary. Kodi still seems to work. Will do some testing now.
I’m not a Debian expert so maybe this is a stupid question. I’m used to Gentoo Portage and FreeBSD ports which allow build options. To compile hyperion (and .ng) I need to install qtbase5-dev which pulls in opengl and mesa which break Kodi.Is there a way to get qtbase5-dev without pulling these in? I could probably remove the bad packages but how can I be sure they won’t be pulled in again on an update thus breaking Kodi again?
