Kodi Error - Kodi not starting

Post by wmcig »

I am using the latest DietPi version. I also installed Docker for using pihole.

Now I installed Kodi via the Software Center.

After using the command "startkodi" the following error was shown:

Code: Select all

        root@DietPi:~# startkodi
libva info: VA-API version 1.10.0
libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null)
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
sh: 1: nmblookup: not found
^C 
What can I do?

Not related question, why using docker? DietPi is offering Pihole natively and you could save docker overhead

Back to Kodi. Pls could you share some more system details. Are you using a RPi4?

Required Information
  • DietPi version | cat /boot/dietpi/.version
  • Distro version | echo $G_DISTRO_NAME $G_RASPBIAN
  • Kernel version | uname -a
  • SBC model | echo $G_HW_MODEL_NAME or (EG: RPi3)
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

ok on RPi4 we have a know issue to start Kodi. Currently we are not sure why Kodi is started on background. Still something we don't have a solution for.

Where can I find more information about the current status?

How long would it take to fix the Problem with Raspi 4?

Actually it's still not clear why this happen on RPi4. Something we would need to check with RPi and or Kodi guys, if I understood correct from our developer
