Just checking if there's something happening with newer versions? Fedora 26 will be EOL in a month I guess.

This is what I did to build for Fedora 28


wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedo...28.src.rpm

sudo dnf install rpm-build -y

rpm -i  kodi-17.6-9.fc28.src.rpm

cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS

sudo dnf builddep kodi.spec -y

cd ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES

wget -O kodi-libdvdnav-master.tar.gz https://github.com/xbmc/libdvdnav/archive/master.tar.gz
wget -O kodi-libdvdread-master.tar.gz https://github.com/xbmc/libdvdread/archi...ter.tar.gz
wget -O kodi-libdvdcss-master.tar.gz https://github.com/xbmc/libdvdcss/archive/master.tar.gz

cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS

rpmbuild -bb kodi.spec --with dvd



your rpms will spit out in the ~/rpmbuild/RPMS folder

Thanks grim85.

I've now got kodi 17.6 running on Fedora 28 according to your instructions.

But there's a problem, DVD playback doesn't work. Bluray playback works fine though.

When I try to start the playback of a DVD film I get following in the logs

For anyone else that is using Fedora 28 and the rpmfusion Kodi packages (17.6.9 at time of writing)    If you use the default Wayland compositor for your display then you may see some issues with Kodi.   The menu's and OSD were 'jittery' and it appeared that my remote (mce_usb) wasn't quite working correctly.  The video playback seemed fine but if you had subtitles then they would suffer the same issue as the OSD.   The remote seemed to be slow to respond and sometimes in menus it would jump around as if the keys had been pressed multiple times.       I switched to X.org instead and all the issues disappeared.     

For reference I am using an AMD RadeOn HD6450 for graphics.   

If you follow the guide https://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_Ko...n_packages then you should be fine as it doesn't recommend using the default Wayland...
