Re: Raspberry Pi 3B+ Bullseye Performance is Unacceptable

here is a screenshot of my top output after a fresh restart on the clean image of raspberry pi os after running the os update ( bullseye.) There is a check for updates (effectively an apt update) that is run after boot to see if new packages are available. I think that runs as part of piwiz. This u...

Should libwidevinecdm0 work on Bullseye 64 ?
No. There is no 64-bit arm widevine library. You'll need to stick with 32-bit if that is important to you.

This does not appear to be isolated to the 5.15 kernel, so maybe this should be dealt with elsewhere?
If it affects 5.10 kernel then an issue here would be best.
Ideally reproduce the problem with RPiOS first.

Re: Display issue with Bullseye image and Pi 4B

Have you encountered this problem? I will wait for your further suggestions and express my thanks again! No. But I know hdmi_* settings in config.txt (used by firmware) will not affect the kms (kernel) driver. You need to use standard linux configuration for that (cmdline.txt settings or xrandr). I...

Re: Display issue with Bullseye image and Pi 4B

Bullseye uses the kms driver by default which configures displays through kernel rather than firmware means.
See https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v5.10/fb/modedb.html

Maybe

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

feadog, can you try this version (with --pulse)?

It seems launching kodi with anything resembling

Code: Select all

sudo su - pi -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/kodi/kodi.bin
won't have working pulse. If you don't force the user it is okay.
There's something different in the environment that pulse doesn't like.

Does running "kodi --pulse" work? That is meant to skip the stopping/restarting of pulse.

Unless things chnaged with Bullseye, the 4B does not fallback to composite. Ever. Correct. If there is no hotplug asserted it may be running headless. You can force output by editing cmdline.txt. Add to start of first line, "video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080@60D " (or a known working resolution of...

It's a bit more complicated as some of the standard repo packages in buster are not new enough, so need to be built separately.

The package has been pushed to the main raspberrypi bullseye repo, so can be installed with no apt changes.
kodi-pvr-iptvsimple should be there too. Thanks for testing.

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

No, cec is built in, and isn't a kodi addon. Kodi does depend on libcec (debian package which has a pi specific build in raspberrypi repo),
but I think that should be installed as a dependency.
