Solved LibreELEC VBox Addon V4.7.0.1 fails to load on RPi4
#1
I have LibreELEC 9.2.0 running on RPi4.arm with Kodi V18.5. I have installed the Vbox addon from the LibreELEC repository. It installs but fails to connect to the backend. A restart causes Kodi to crash & then the addon fails to load. This behavior also applies if the earlier 4.4.8.5 version of the addon is installed.

This is the error from the log file:

I have exactly the same LibreELEC & Kodi versions running on an RPi3b & the VBox addon V4.7.0.1 runs perfectly.

Also in most cases the FULL log file is much more convenient, not just your 'interesting' pastes. Problems can unfold at any time.

I guess we need to increase the font size of the "Do not post logs in the forum" remark...

The log file is too big for the log file uploader to accept so I posted the bit that the developer needs to see to address the issue.

You can also use Ubuntu's pastebin site for longer log files.
Or simply cut the log file in multiple parts. Smile

Not completely clear from the snippet, but it looks like a networking issue to me.

Then later on,

2019-04-11 16:28:46.823 T:2766369648   ERROR: ## LibreELEC Addon ## oe::load_url(http://releases.libreelec.tv/releases.json) ## ERROR: (URLError(gaierror(-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution'),))
URLError: <urlopen error [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution>

So no DNS at that point.  Is the network even up and running and connected to anything?  My guess would be no, looking at those errors.

Just go to kodi settings and under LibreElec enable wait for network. That should fix it.
