v18 OSMC test builds for Leia (Kodi 18)
If you are having issues with updating this is due to the aptly certificate expiring. You will need to download and install the new public cert:
wget -qO - http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-19/public/pubkey.asc | sudo apt-key add -

With Kodi Krypton now branched, the master is on Leia (v18)

Previous Krypton nightlies can be found here.

OSMC Test Builds for Kodi 18 for Raspberry Pi 1 & 2/3

Based on the Kodi master Leia (v18) and popcornmix's newclock

Kodi 18 is currently in RC3 and there is likely to be a lot of activity in the coming weeks/months. As these are beta builds expect some issues.

Before proceeding make sure you have a backup of your Raspberry Pi. As these are test builds there could well be some unexpected problems.

Database upgrades could also be an issue. Please make a backup of the Kodi database before installing, especially if you are running a remote MySQL database.

You need a working system in order to install these test builds. If you do not have OSMC already installed then go to https://osmc.tv/download/ to install the latest stable version.

As the nightlies are now built on Debian Stretch you will first need to upgrade your OS to stretch.


**Make sure you have a backup. Once the upgrade starts there is no going back.**

Once the upgrade has been completed you will need to also complete the following:


Save and exit file.

Import gpg certificate:

Finally run update and dist-upgrade to install latest nightly.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

And then issue the following command to install a test build for Raspberry Pi 2 or 3:
sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc

To install a Raspberry Pi 1 or Raspberry Pi Zero build, issue the following command:
sudo apt-get install rbp1-mediacenter-osmc

You can now update to the latest build when it is published with the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

After upgrading to each new nightly chances are good that it will crash once (sad face). Kodi will auto restart and resume again as normal. This is a known issue

Since we are in alpha there could be a lot of incompatibilities with skins and addons. To resolve these its best taking the issue up with the addon developer.

If you have any issues with OSMC please provide debug logs. Most probems are almost impossible to fix if we don't have the debug logs.

How to submit a useful support request


To confirm which version you are running:
dpkg -l | grep mediacenter-osmc | awk '{ print $3 }'

Just a reminder that the profile switching issue is still present in the Kodi 17/18 builds.
I can circumvent by restarting Kodi after changing the auto-login profile, but this is becoming a PITA.
NB It seems to be OK on the Milhouse LibreElec v17/18 builds.
I thought we fixed that..

Back on the list it goes.
I haven't rerun the various test scenarios like I did when I first hit this a few months back.
But I'm fairly sure the problem relates to the login screen.
I may retry some of the scenarios if I can tear myself away from watching stuff :-}
Thought we fixed it as well. I'll run a few tests and see if I can replicate the issue.
