Req Additional info on webOS build guide
#1
Question 
I am attempting to build kodi for webOS, and I'm following the guide on /docs/README.webOS.md of the github repo. However, below prerequisites, the second-to-last bullet point is confusing to me.
  • [Download and setup a compatible toolchain to compile kodi]. The toolchain which was used in this guide is buildroot-nc4, it is an up to date buildroot configuration and comes with newer tools such as GCC 12.2.0. Other toolchains exist, such as those found on the LG OpenSource website: https://opensource.lge.com/. You will need to enter the model number of your TV to find the applicable toolchain.
I'm running Windows, so I can't use Buildroot, and I was unable to find "other toolchains" and where to write the serial number. I'd really appreciate the guide being expanded or any help on the matter. Thanks.

I am trying to build kodi too.
Following this guide https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...E.webOS.md
I did:
bash:
mkdir $HOME/kodi-dev
cd $HOME/kodi-dev
wget https://github.com/openlgtv/buildroot-nc...oot.tar.gz
tar xfz arm-webos-linux-gnueabi_sdk-buildroot.tar.gz -C $HOME/kodi-dev
git clone https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc kodi
cd $HOME/kodi/tools/depends
./bootstrap
./configure --prefix=$HOME/kodi-deps --host=arm-webos-linux-gnueabi --with-toolchain=$HOME/kodi-dev/arm-webos-linux-gnueabi_sdk-buildroot --enable-debug=no
Then I do "make".
But I get:
-- Could NOT find CURL (missing: CURL_LIBRARY CURL_INCLUDE_DIR)
CMake Error at Source/Modules/CMakeBuildUtilities.cmake:145 (message):
CMAKE_USE_SYSTEM_CURL is ON but a curl is not found!
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:416 (include)

Obvisouly curl is present on the building system.
