Re: Kodi - Unable to create GUI

Post by Milemar »

Just a quick question to clarify. What Kodi version should be installed on 64-bit dietpi when choosing it from dietpi-software?

I am asking this as the Kodi website states that the newest version for Rpi OS is Leia 18.7) but the one that I have installed is Kodi from Debian 17.6.

When I check for updates, I am getting all up to date:

Code: Select all

root@Kodi:~# apt-get update
Hit:1 https://deb.debian.org/debian buster InRelease
Hit:2 https://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates InRelease
Hit:3 https://deb.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates InRelease
Hit:4 https://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease
Hit:5 https://deb.debian.org/debian buster-backports InRelease

Why is that?
Am I missing some repository?

Kodi is installed from official Debian repository. Hence it is 17.6 on arm64

Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
