Can we have a native Raspbian KODI build
#46
When one has two sources available with the same packages (but perhaps different versions) , is there a recommended way to manage this?

I can see that I can show what versions are available by doing an apt-cache show kodi, but that doesn't seem to show me where those versions are coming from. There is a path, /pool/contrib/.. or similar, but it's not obvious to me that that necessarily always is identifiable as a particular source. How do the people who know what they are doing manage this? Of course in most cases one wouldn't care, and would just take the latest, but in my mind it gets hairier when unstable sources are available.

thx

apt-cache policy kodi

By default, it will always use the newest version of any available repo. This behavior can be overridden by apt pinning.
If multiple repos have the exact same version, it will just use the first one.

Thanks! The output from that is so much more informative and just what I was looking for.

That's not enough. We'd recommend gpu_mem=256 for Pi 2.

(facepalm) Sorry, I miss to increase GPU ram.
Only to be clear I'm running on a Raspberry Pi B board, not Rpi 2 (unfortunately)
Now it's running Big Grin

Start with at least gpu_mem=128. You may need more for some use cases (e.g. heavier skins).

I'm using samsung TV, CEC from tv remote control isn't working.
The last time I used xbmc (gotham) more than 6 months ago, the remote was working fine. Sad

Have you added any other devices to your TV? I had similar issue also with samsung TV where my cable TV set top box was blocking CEC on RPi2 Kodi. Plug everything else out of TV and check if it works. If so it's a conflict with one of the other devices. To solve it, a cheap solution that doesn't involve damaging your hdmi cable is to buy hdmi-dvi and dvi-hdmi adapters and plug put them between the device causing the conflict and the tv. dvi doesn't support CEC so it blocks any signals on that path...

Hope that helps!

Hi, I have only the raspberry attached to the TV.
Since the gotham release I was using the remote controller; 6 months ago I started with a fresh image and this is the first time I install xbmc on it.

Try unplugging the TV from the mains for a minute. Surprisingly this often gets CEC working (TVs seem to "remember" unwanted stuff about past CEC devices connected)
Make sure TV was powered up first and on correct HDMI input before Pi was booted.
Some HDMI cables don't wire the CEC pin. Are you sure that cable works with CEC?
It might be worth an experiment with an OpenELEC install where we know that libcec is built correctly just to prove the Pi/cable/TV are set up correctly.

After warming up to the thought of running Kodi as the main system for my new board, while still keeping Raspbian for better compatibility with other stuff (?), this topic interests me greatly. However I'm not fully sure what it actually means! Kodi was added to the Raspbian repository, so we can now use apt-get. That I understand. But does this mean that the Raspbian version now is officially supported? Or was it always supported, or will it still not be? Can releases be expected to appear simultaneously as for other platforms? I'm not sure how these things go. Having used Windows all my life I've never had to consider other platforms.

While it's not a build created by anyone on Team Kodi, I believe it follows all of our requirements and guidelines, and should be considered just as official as any other Raspberry Pi build that does the same.

deb-src http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/raspbian/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free

in my /etc/apt/source.list, but there is no kodi package?

kodi is not in the raspbian repo, but in:
Code:
http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/

Jessie is not currently support by raspberrypi repo, so there may or may not be issues. Jessie support is being worked on.
