v18 LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0)
Are the test builds stable enough for daily driver?
Im getting a Apollo Lake NUC tomorrow and will install it on Usb drive as I dont want to reformat windows drive straight away.
Anything I should know about these builds on Apollo Lake?
No HD-Audio via HDMI 2.0. Driver shortcoming. Besides that: all fine. If you often switch on the device before AVR/TV make yourself familiar with EDID overwriting. See LE wiki.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

Ok thanks Smile
Coming from a Nvidia Shield, hope to see improved scaling from 720 to 2160.

Is that for passthrough and bitstreaming? Or just passthrough?

Drive your TV at 1080 ... kodi's scaler is too slow to scale from 720 to 2160 in decent quality ... Kodi can switch up when you really watch 4k.

Bitstream - as you know - wondering why you ask, if you know the answer.

I know this is the wrong place to ask this but anyone here able to help with my LibreELEC install on my Intel Apollo Lake NUC?
If so I can PM you my issue.
Thanks!

Start a new thread and post the details, either here (Kodi) or on the LibreELEC forum.

Weekly Linux 4.10-rc5 build #0124x: Generic

Same as #0124, but without media_build extensions (not compatible with this kernel).

I am presently running Openelec 6.95 on one of my systems. Can I upgrade that system with the newest build here without starting fresh ?? I would rather not do a fresh install because this system feeds the two other installs.

Build Details:

Additional commits/pull requests/changes not yet merged upstream:
  • Added: [env] PR:1186: kodi: update to Kodi 18 alpha 1

Just out of curiosity so that I get a better understanding of the whole development process: Weren't you building Kodi 18.0 alpha 1 releases before? Or was this alpha 1 tag just unofficially given by you??

Yes, I had been building Kodi 18 alpha 1 with a number of "personal" patches/commits that bumped the version and applied the various changes since Kodi 17.

All that has changed is that I've pushed a PR (PR:1186) to LibreELEC master based on the original commits and I've now started using the PR instead of the individual commits (I tend to do this while stuff is a work in progress and/or not yet ready for LE master - sometimes easier than pushing an unfinished PR to github).

Now that the old commits have been replaced by the PR, my scripts report the PR as a "new" commit when in reality it is just replacing the old personal patch.

And when PR:1186 is finally merged it will be reported again as a new LibreELEC change, even though it would have been in these builds for ages (once it merges in LibreELEC master I no longer need to continue including the now merged PR in my build).

(2017-01-25, 19:39)kekomat Wrote: Or was this alpha 1 tag just unofficially given by you??

Nope - not invented by me. The alpha 1 tag has been there since Kodi 17 branched and master became Kodi 18 alpha 1.

Better if you do a clean install as newer version require bigger partition, but you could manually increase partition size (512 MB) and than update to LE.
