OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 17.0)
#1
Kodi "master" is now based on Krypton, or Kodi 17. See this thread for Kodi 16 (Jarvis) testbuilds.

Fair Warning

Kodi 17 is currently alpha and there is likely to be a lot of activity in the coming weeks/months. There will be some breakage.

Skin Usage

By all means use third party skins with these builds (if the skins are compatible), but please do not report problems that cannot be reproduced while using the stock Estuary skin that is included with every build.

If a problem is not reproducible with stock Estuary then it's most likely to be a third-party skin problem, in which case contact the skin maintainer.

Installing

You need a working system in order to install a test build. If you are starting from scratch, use an official OpenELEC disk image to create a working system on your SD card. Once you have a working system, install the test build by copying the tar file into your Update folder and reboot.

RPi 3 Users: Use RPi2 builds.

Feature Requests:
I will not be adding extra add-hoc packages to these builds as that is not their purpose, which is to help test bug fixes and enhancements for existing features/packages/drivers in stock OpenELEC. New functionality may be included for testing purposes if it is considered both beneficial and highly likely to be merged upstream in the near future, and is available as a github pull request or commit.

I have no desire to create builds with unique features upon which someone becomes dependent, as this benefits nobody in the long term not even those using the unique features once I stop creating new builds. In theory, when I stop creating new builds you should all be able to seamlessly switch back to official OpenELEC builds which by then should be including most if not all of the enhancements originally tested in these builds.

If you care about long term support for your favourite package, feature or driver and want to see it included in an OpenELEC build, contact the OpenELEC developers on github and open an issue requesting the addition of support in the base OpenELEC build (or better yet, create a Pull Request with patch). That way everyone building or using an OpenELEC derived system "wins".

Additional Testing Notes:
  1. Build references

    When reporting issues, refer to builds using only the published build codes, ie. #0215, #0216 etc. The build code is visible on the boot screen, and by typing "lsb_release".

    Do NOT use any other reference, as these are often meaningless. For instance, the OpenELEC github revision identifier, 20272, 20281 etc. can be used by more than one build if nothing changes in OpenELEC between successive builds meaning such references could identify multiple builds, rendering it useless as a unique reference.

    Anyone using the wrong reference will be ignored by me, possibly others, as I'm just not interested in working out which build you may or may not be referring to.

  2. Usage information

    Starting with build #0529(2014), very limited usage information will be collected during the first boot of each newly installed build. The information collected is: build#, Pi memory size (256MB, 512MB or 1008MB) and maximum ARM frequency. No IP or personal information is collected!

    If you wish to opt out of data collection, run the following command:
    Code:
    touch /storage/.config/milhouse.dnt
    The purpose of this data collection is really just to get an idea of how much testing is being carried out and on what hardware, and would otherwise be achieved via non-opt out server logs if such logs were available (which they're not).

  3. Migrating OpenELEC from Pi1 to Pi2, and back again

    Note: Prior to migration I would recommend disabling all overclocks, as a Pi1 overclock may not work successfully on a Pi2, and vice versa.

    From Pi1 to Pi2: While using the Pi1, upgrade with the RPi2 tar. Once the upgrade is complete, the system will reboot to a rainbow boot screen (as you're now booting the ARMv7 kernel). Shutdown (pull the power) and transfer the SD card into your Pi2, which will boot normally.

    From Pi2 to Pi1: While using the Pi2, upgrade with the RPi tar. Once the upgrade is complete, the system will reboot to a rainbow boot screen (as you're now using the ARMv6 kernel). Shutdown (pull the power) and transfer the SD card into your Pi1, which will boot normally.

  4. Builds since early Dec 2014 include crashlog support

    In the event of a crash, the file /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi_crashlog_<ccyymmddhhmmss>.log will be created. Upload this file to a paste site and post details on the forum.

    Debug builds are occasionally uploaded to the debug folder. Debug builds will usually include more detailed crashlog information, but require a larger System partition (at least 384MB) and more RAM (on Pi1, reduce gpu_mem to 128 or as low as you can live with while still able to reproduce the problem).

    Use the following command to upload the most recent crashlog:
    Code:
    paste $(ls -1art /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi_crashlog* | tail -1)

    Hint: Use the following command to create an alias named "crashlog" that can be used to upload always the latest crashlog file:
    Code:
    echo "alias crashlog='paste $(ls -1art /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi_crashlog* | tail -1)'" >> /storage/.profile


  5. Resizing partitions for debug-enabled builds (or undersized partitions that result in "CHECKING SIZE: FAILED" errors)

    The default FAT partitition created by a disk-image installation (prior to OpenELEC 6.0.1) is too small for a debug-enabled build (and even some of the more experimental non-debug builds depending on what features are included), and will need to be increased in size to 512MB using some of the free space allocated to the second ext4 partition.

    To resize the FAT and ext4 partitions of an existing installation:
    • Linux: use gparted to resize FAT/ext4 partitions
    • Windows: use MiniTool Partition Wizard. See this post for more details - unfortunately partition move/resize is not supported by MiniTool for ext4 filesystems so backup, delete/recreate ext4, then restore to resize the Storage partition
    • Windows: An alternative solution is to boot a Linux "LiveCD" and then use gparted
    Alternatively, if you have a Linux system available and are creating a fresh SD installation, manually creating the partitions may be a quicker option (the linked instructions will create a 512MB FAT partition).

    Starting with OpenELEC 6.0.1, disk image installations will now create a 512MB FAT partition although this will wipe all existing data - use the backup/restore procedure to save existing data.

  6. Amazon Prime / inputstream.mpd
    These builds include the inputstream.mpd addon, which is enabled by default.

    With inputstream.mpd it is possible to view Amazon Prime content. To do so, you will need to install the libwidevinecdm.so library:
    Code:
    curl -Ls http://nmacleod.com/public/libreelec/getwidevine.sh -o /tmp/getwidevine.sh && sh /tmp/getwidevine.sh

Hi Milhouse, any update on the reboot issue with connman 1.3
Issue is still present for me on #1205 so stuck at #1128 for the time being.
There has been no reply on the PR.
Should I open an issue in relation to it?
#9
No sorry, you seem to be the only person (so far) with this issue. I can't remember, but did you try rebooting a "clean" system? Do you have any other systemd services running on your system (mounts etc.)?

#10
I have 8 Mounts that are running through systemd
all use the following setup but with different what/where
Code:
[Unit]
Description=TV Shows
Requires=network-online.service
After=network-online.service
Before=kodi.service

[Mount]
# The share we want mount
What=192.168.1.60:/TVShows
Where=/storage/tvshows
Options=nfsvers=3,intr,noatime,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,nolock,async,proto=udp
Type=nfs

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

I'll try with a clean system tomorrow. I just didnt want to immediately try this in case it was useful in debugging to be able to reproduce
#11
I have a question.
Is there any reason that it should be selecting the mode for 1080i here:
http://sprunge.us/RJTj

The previous versions were apparently doing the same, but I hadn't really noticed until I was doing testing for popcornmix. I'm certainly no expert, but it seems like it should be selecting the 1080p mode. The TV is an LG 3D 65" "smart" TV that's maybe 2 years old now. I'm using my old Onkyo TX-SR604 receiver in the middle.

Thanks for your hard work. As always, I greatly appreciate it. Smile
Experience: It's what you get when you were expecting something else.

You can run
Code:
tvservice -d edid.dat
edidparser edid.dat
to see why it is choosing 1080i, but the most likely reason is because the edid says that is the preferred mode.
You can add:
Code:
hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=16
to config.txt to override this.
#13
This is what I get back from edidparser. It seems to think that 1080p would be the preferred mode from what I can tell.
http://sprunge.us/EKig

EDIT Never mind this posting, I sent the wrong EDID parse file. Sorry about that. You were right, it prefers the 1080i for some reason. After swapping the cards between my two pi systems, I got confused for a moment. I'll try the mode 16 thing
Experience: It's what you get when you were expecting something else.
#14
hdmi_mode=16 fixed it. Is there any advantage either way?

Did the giant debug log I posted provide anything useful about the other issue with the skipping frames and high CPU usage?

Thanks again for looking into that. Smile I'm going to make a really long recording (football game) and see if recordings cause the issue too.


As for my freezing, it seems to only be with SSH sessions. I've done a bunch of giant file copying and iperf tests and I don't see any issues with that stuff. It's really annoying though. I really don't think that kodi(openelec) is getting 10 second long freezes on the stream. I really thought it was something to do with Windows 10 on my new Christmas present laptop, but I tried a Windows 7 machine and got the same results on SSH freezing. I'm using several different Linux hosts running very different OS setups (one is real old Gentoo, two RPis and a NUC running Mythbuntu along with an I3 (Myth backend) running Mythbunutu. I also tried Bitvise SSH as well as a couple of different Putty versions and got the freezes.

I'm a bit OCD about problems and can't just let them go until I completely understand what's going wrong. I wasn't getting these freezes before a few weeks ago. I have a new cable modem too, so I'm not sure that it's not somehow responsible for this. I've power cycled all my switches etc and it still happens randomly on SSH. I've read that MTU issues could be responsible, but I find it hard to believe that SSH packets are fragmenting since they typically carry just a few bytes of payload. Sorry for being kind of OT.
