Re: Problem with KODI "Version Check" and Autostart

And if you're just wanting Kodi (and not anything else) then maybe consider LibreElec or OSMC as alternatives.

Both are packaged versions of Kodi plus enough OS behind it to run it (and only it, at least in the case of LE - OSMC can support a bit more).

Re: PiHole updated and now inaccessible?

I thought it probably wouldn't be so easy ;) In my case I removed certbot as I have it elsewhere (built into NextCloud, running under Docker on another Pi) and didn't need the duplication or extra port openings. So the certificate is still valid, it's just not renewed/downloaded under the DietPi ins...

Re: PiHole updated and now inaccessible?

@Joulinar - ok, all seems to be working properly again. Both web interface and HA connection are back up again. Thanks once again for the excellent support. You can close this one off as solved, enjoy your time out! Is this something that should be considered with regard to uninstalling certbot? Loo...

Re: PiHole updated and now inaccessible?

Looks like you can fix things even when you're out ;) Renamed the file to .bak and rebooted, now the dashboard comes up. Will give it a further test and restore my backup of the PiHole configuration (as of course it's come up vanilla due to the removal/reinstall) but we're looking good to go so far....

Thanks - it's not an urgent rush.

Re: PiHole updated and now inaccessible?

Looks like the certbot removal did break it: root@VPNPi:~# /usr/sbin/lighttpd -tt -f /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf 2021-01-24 09:42:35: (mod_openssl.c.445) SSL: BIO_read_filename('/etc/letsencrypt/live/****.****.****/combined.pem') failed 2021-01-24 09:42:35: (server.c.1183) Initialization of plugins ...

PiHole updated and now inaccessible?

I just did an update to my installed PiHole set-up (to v5.2.4) and now it seems to be inaccessible. The web interface doesn't load, and there's no access available via Home Assistant either. The update was via "pihole -up" from the command line (the normal update route). From the command l...

Re: Latest version of kodi in our repo?

For Kodi at least - the package is not put together/distributed by the Kodi Foundation but is actually a community build. Due to that it can sometimes take a while before the packaged version catches up with the release version on the other platforms. Currently this is the case - the latest communit...

Re: Kodi freezes, then settings get lost every once in a while

How are you exiting Kodi? When it is shutdown properly (via the quit option on the main menu) it will do various housekeeping bits and update databases and settings files. If the shutdown is not done cleanly (either the process is killed or if some addon or script screws with it) then it can cause c...
