Full Version: Kodibuntu - reboots continuously
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
The system was running fine, no changes, no updates and all of a sudden it reboots continuously after it starts up. Sometimes if stays up a 10 minutes sometimes it reboots right away. What is the best method of finding out what is occurring?
If there was no changes to the software or hardware, than you might have a faulty hardware.
Most likely bad fan on cpu or video card, or bad video card
Hum, Not sure if it s hardware. I left it running pseudoTv Live on a Over the Air channel and it stays up. the moment i exit Psedup tv it reboot. going to have to re-install ARGH!!!!!
if it stays up sometime for 10 minutes that´s time enough to enable debug logging in system settings, wait for the next reboot (hopefully again for 10 minutes) and then grab a full Debug Log
I have the same problem and I am using Openelec (5.95) with kodi 15.2 as the base. It may take as long as 15 minutes for it to start rebooting, and then it will never stay up for longer than a minute. The program is not full rebooting either; it is just black screen followed by reloading the kodi program.

I tried reinstalling Openelec and got no change. I also thought it could be the Simple PVR application so I disabled TV and it did not change.

Remove them and retry. The best would be you do a factory reset (no need for a fresh install). A factory reset is done as follows:

- ssh in
- do the following command:

Code:
mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi-bak

- reboot

This will remove all addons and settings. But they are backuped in the "kodi-bak" folder. So you can restore them any time you want. After the command above you could try to install one addon (or repo) after the other. Install it, test if OE works fine, install another....and so on. Until you find the offending addon/repo.

Be aware that you won't get support if you have issues with one of those banned addons. If you install an offending addon you are on your own and should ask for support where you get this addon from.

Here is a (incomplete) list of which is banned: Official:Forum_rules/Banned_add-ons (wiki)
Thank you for the guidance and I apologize for the policy violation.
Also to answer your original question...

Look at dmesg logs and other system logs and program specific logs (like Debug Log) and if its confusing to interpret them pastebin the logs and post links in forums along with your help requests.
