Kodi 15.2 for Wheezy (Download)

Fri Nov 13, 2015 7:38 pm

I will be compiling every new stable version of kodi :shock:
You most have 15.0 already installed If you don't install it by following these instructions.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove kodi kodi.bin -y 
wget http://steinerdatenbank.de/software/kodi-15.tar.gz
tar -xzf kodi-15.tar.gz
cd kodi-15
sudo ./install
To get 15.2 first create this script

Code: Select all

nano kodi15.2install.sh
Then put this in the Kodi script

Code: Select all

cd /usr/bin && wget -O kodi https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ldu6v6gec1bwog/kodi?dl=1 && wget -O kodi-standalone https://www.dropbox.com/s/ddemn5gql2wxdw3/kodi-standalone?dl=1 && cd /usr/lib/kodi && wget -O kodi.bin https://www.dropbox.com/s/xfrwr611l6sislg/kodi.bin?dl=1 && reboot
Save the script by pressing

Code: Select all

Ctrl and the letter X
Run the script with

Code: Select all

sudo sh kodi15.2install.sh 
Now you should have Kodi 15.2 for wheezy.

I start kodi with this script

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
sudo rm -r /home/pi/.kodi/addons/packages/*.zip
setterm -cursor off
mkdir -p ~/.kodi
clear
startkodi
setterm -cursor on


exit 0

Hi!

Dont know why but after testing 3 methods of getting kodi 15 running in my wheezy Rasperry 1GB, all of them worked but yours is the one that better permonce gives to me.

GUI is faster than others and in general it seems better.

Only thing is that I cant get my TV remote control to work. And with the other methods it worked.

Could be related to the libcec version 3.0 for CEC (remote control) support?

I tried installing that following the guidelines here: viewtopic.php?f=66&t=109088 and didnt worked.

After that I tried viewtopic.php?f=29&t=117019 but no way.

Could you help with this, please?

Thanks in advance!

Since i didn't needed CEC i didn't compile Kodi with CEC.
I'll compile Kodi with CEC in version 16.0.

You can't really update by just replacing kodi.bin. Why not create a debian package with "checkinstall"?
(sudo checkinstall make install).

It does update by just replacing kodi-standalone, kodi.bin and kodi.

Another extrange thing:

Volume up key of my usb keyboard works as expected in this version. But not Volume down key.

With other versions both keys worked fine.

Ok, I have been able to build kodi myself with CEC support. I would like create a .tar.gz file as you did to run ./install and to be able to install my build when needed.

But dont know wich files do I need to include. How do I generate the installer with all needed files, libraries and dependencies as your .tar.gz file?

Thanks a lot.
