I just updated to 6.14 on my Odroid C2 and discovered a few problems. First, X wouldn’t start, complaining about keyboard compilation. OK, so I did an xkb configuration, and that seemed to solve that. After that, however, Kodi will run (xinit kodi-standalone) but has no sound.
The log files indicate that it it can’t find pulseaudio:
12:31:26.237 T:547385540608 ERROR: PulseAudio: Failed to connect context 12:31:26.237 T:547385540608 NOTICE: PulseAudio might not be running.

Looking back at previous dietpi versions, it appears that pulseaudio is a new addition. Also, I notice that a pulse user has been added to the passwd file, which makes me wonder if there is some sort of permissions issue. I tried uninstalling pulseaudio, hoping that it would just automatically fall back to ALSA, but that doesn’t seem to happen.
Does anybody have any pointers for either getting pulseaudio working or forcing Kodi to use ALSA?
Thanks for your help, and for all of your work putting DietPi together, which really is a great OS.
