Debian Stretch + Kodi possible?
#1
I have the Rock64 4GB board and I would like use it like a NAS with Kodi. By the moment not exist an OS for Rock64 similar to the old OMSC, xbian or other similars to Rpi.

I installed the last Debian Stretch 0.5.15-136-20171222 and try to install Kodi.
I am not a Linux expert, I just check any update and make a "apt-get install kodi". The install fiinished without any error, but when I try to run kodi (from Desktop or console) it does not start, the message I get by console is "libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate"

I tried to search related info in forums related with Rpi or arm devices but I do not have nothing clear about the error.

Does somebody know if is possible have Debian and Kodi running on Rock64? Can somebody try to help me or give me some advise?


Thanks, regards

Why not use kodi directly? I tried Kodi on a "normal" Linux distro and it lagged like hell (speaking of latencies over 4 secs). So even if you could resolve the error,it still won't be good.
I currently use Raybuntu's Leia build with attached NAS HDD and private key SSH and it's fine.
If you only want a NAS Server I would recommend openmediavault(for example if you split the work between rock and RPI)
If you need the normal usability of Linux you could use docker inside Kodi,but I couldn't get that to work so far(but didn't try much yet tbh).

It is interensting know that you have test and see lag...

Any way, I hope in the future will exit a version like OSMC or similar. I want to use this board as media center with Kodi, but then run other services like transmission, mosquitto, blynk-server, samba and others that are not availables in Libreelect as addons.

Thanks for your reply. If somebody has tried other options will be interesting to know.

I have to say that I could install Kodi on Ubuntu mate without problems. It runs fine, but the problem is when you play some video, it can't manage it, is like it has not installed the gpu drivers.

Try on the recent bionic pre-release and report back.

I have tried to. The results are the same aprox... and the Kodi version that apt-get install is 15...

I hope some day exist a SO similar to OSMC.

Code:
sudo apt remove kodi kodi-bin kodi-data
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi


That will get you 17.X (not sure which is the current stable version) on Bionic.
