I didn't try older builds. I only tried #0518x to check if kernel 4.12 improved anything about this issue - https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread-4235.html (It didn't).

Hi,

Since the latest few updates (probably for 2 weeks or so), the ShaderToy visualization addon cannot be loaded. It gives an popup that says that it can't load a shared library.

As I am not sure if I should report the issue here. Please let me know if you need me to upload a debug log or if I should contact the creator of the ShaderToy plugin.

Best regards!

You just need a new version of Shadertoy that works with these builds - many addons from the repository are currently "broken" due to the ongoing addon API changes in these builds. Once things settle down then we can rebuild all the addons in the online repository, unfortunately while Kodi is a moving target that isn't possible.

I've uploaded a small selection of the frequently used addons here: http://milhouse.libreelec.tv/builds/addons/

Try installing the latest version of visualization.shadertoy as a zip file.

Hi Milhouse,

Thanks for your quick reply.

I installed the #0429 version of the Shadertoy visualization, but the error still comes up. Should I create a debug log?

Best regards!

Yes please.

I just tried installing version #0429 of visualization.shadertoy into the latest build, #0518, and didn't have a problem.

Hi Milhouse,

I made an error earlier, instead of installing the visualization.shadertoy, I installed the screensaver.shadertoy zip. After installing the visualization all seems to be working smooth now.

Thanks for your support and keep it up!

Best regards!

Is there any way around this other than trying to do a homebrew samba install (which may just not be possible with Lion....).

Can you post the contents of "/storage/.smb/smb.conf"?

And can you also confirm if #0515 is working - if so, this would suggest some sort of incompatibility between Samba 4.6.3 and OSX 10.7 (in #0515, the Samba version is 4.6.2).

/storage/.smb/smb.conf

[global]
preferred master = no
local master = no
domain master = no
lock directory = /storage/.smb/
client max protocol = SMB3
name resolve order = bcast host

#0512: SMB working
#0513 & #0514: SMB not broken - but not active hence Libreelec not listed as device on OSX - ssh to rpi, enter: smbd -> libreelec can be accessed via SMB
#0515-#0518: SMB not working under OSX 10.7 anymore (Connection failed, regardless of SMB1,2 or 3 setting)

#0518: SMB3 - libreelec listed but connection failed
#0518: SMB2 - libreelec not listed - ssh: smbd -> listed but connection failed
#0518: SMB1 - libreelec not listed - ssh: smbd -> listed but connection failed

BTW, any news on the CEC issue? Still can't wake Kodi from dimmed state with TV remote, have to use phone remote...

@nuwonda ah, you're talking about being unable to connect to the Samba _server_ in LE, ie. OSX can't connect to LE (rather than LE can't connect to OSX).

Since #0515 the LE Samba Server only accepts connections that are SMB2 or better. Your options are (in ascending order of preference):
1) configure OSX to negotiate connections better than NT1. On a regular Linux/Unix machine you'd do this by adding "client max protocol = SMB3" in $HOME/.smb/smb.conf. This does require the version of Samba on OSX >= 4.1.0
2) alternatively, on LE run "cp /storage/.config/samba.conf.sample /storage/.config/samba.conf" and comment out "server min protocol = SMB2" by adding a # at the beginning of the line (or change SMB2 to NT1). You accept the increased security risk this change brings.

#519:
Guess "Revert "DVDDemuxFFmpeg: max_packet_size - use GetBlockSize directly" (871438cb)" brought something back
Trying to play 3D iso is causing a crash/restart again.

Thanks! I tried smbup and got smb3 installed on the mac but i still can't connect to libreelec, I checked if maybe the old smb was still running somewhere but all plists point to the new one, so not sure what else I could do there.
The # commenting out didn't work either, nor did the NT1.

Since it's just for copying over the builds I might as well just do it via sftp, unless I can dl the nightly builds directly via some plugin from within libreelec maybe?
