Up until a couple days ago I was running two systems, both on stable version of LibreELEC. One is on a Chromebox, the other is on a VM on my unRAID Server @ 4 MB RAM & 4 Cores.

I updated the Chromebox to #0903. No issues for my uses outside of the HDHR addon no longer working properly. The "thinking" rotating clock, and then logo were stuck on the screen and there wasn't anything I can do. No biggie as I rarely use this addon, only if the MythTV PVR backend is failing for whatever reason and I don't have time to reset it. I was able to install Netflix and Amazon Prime. Big plus.

Today, I did the upgrade to the VM. After the reboot, it was sluggish and unusable. Navigating the menu was clunky, a second or more behind, and videos would not stream properly. I realized I had installed #0906. I figured it was something with the VM not working well on these Alpha versions, but I decided to try again by downgrading to #0903, the working version on my Chromebox. To my pleasant surprise, it worked.

If there's any diagnostic logs you'd like me to run, or tests to try out, I'll keep my eye on this thread.


What form of virtualization is it? You can only expect good performance if you are using qemu and passing through a dedicated gpu. Otherwise you are going to get software decoding of videos which won't work that we'll.

Here is my current configuration. I'm passing through my CPU as well as a dedicated GPU. And as mentioned, it worked flawlessly up until #0906. Stable as well as #0903 worked well.

I can certainly give this a shot and incrementally run through the updates until I find the culprit.

Also, assuming it starts with the switch to the 4.13 kernel, then testing the release candidates to see if we can identify when it starts would also help.

Unusable in what way, can you provide a more detailed description of the problem? Maybe even a photograph?

When does the problem start, #0905, #0906 or #0907?

It's a strange issue, rebooting usually helps. Please post a debug log if it continues.

problem starts at #0905.
Produces conciderable input lag (few seconds before UI responds) and extreme CPU load.

running #0904 without any problems.

Somehow this got fixed by installing the #0907 build and reverting back to #0904 so ignore this.

Are you using a VM?

Tested #0904 and #0905.

#0904 works the same as all previous iterations. No problems besides the previously noted HDHR addon.

#0905 is where it starts. GUI is essentially rendered useless. It boots, but navigates at a snails pace. Here is the debug log:

Just for fun, I'll give the newest #0908 a test and report back.

EDIT: No good on #0908

The NUC when booted to windows works fine so its just on LE.

Can you install the "network tools" add-on from the LibreELEC repository as this will install the iw utility, reboot, then run:
Code:
iw list | pastebinit
iw reg get | pastebinit
iw dev wlan0 scan | pastebinit
iw dev wlan0 info | pastebinit
iw dev wlan0 link | pastebinit
and paste the links.

I flashed back to LE 8.1.1 as I had some other kodi beta related issues with add ons.
I will try a new build soon and let you know the links Smile
thanks

@Milhouse

Thank you for the ffmpeg HEVC fix. Just tested it and can confirm that both hardware AND software HEVC playback now works with #908. Much appreciaed. Big Grin

Same behavior here, dedicated system no VM.

CPU is an AMD Kabini 5350 APU.

Started with build #0905 so #0904 is the last usable build for me.

The UI gets super slow. When I press a button on my remote it takes about 2-5 seconds until something happens.

As I said, it all started with build #0905 and all builds after that behave the same.

Was a pain to check every new build because going back took about 5 minutes until I got to press "OK" for the download to start.

I feel your pain! Except I quickly gave up on that and initiated the download from my computer and directed it to the update folder on my VM instance.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2017-09-09

@Living Legend / @UrushibaraRuka / @tonyschuite: please try build #0908z: Generic

It includes updated llvm v5.0 (previous is v5.0-rc4) and is a clean build as the suspicion is that there may have been a problem with llvm/mesa in previous builds since #0905 due to a configuration/packaging issue.

ssh is also good for updating. Smile


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Turbostaater - 2017-09-09

Hi,

i've got the same problems like Living Legend, tonyschulte and UrushibaraRuka.

Since #0905 the Kodi GUI is inoperable. Menu, Covers etc needs 3-5 Seconds to load and react.

The last good version is build #0904 Sad

Could be a problem with AMD APUs since the kernel update?

I've got an AMD E-350 APU and the others have got a AMD CPU too?

The newest #0908 have the same problem like Build #0905 - 0907
