Hi all!

Great to hear OE is still alive & kicking. However, seems that this 6.0.x > 7.0.0 update is far from trivial including possible challenges with the partition sizes issues. So as I am quite a noob, prior to even considering this update, I would like to:

1) Know HOW to check do I need to manually resize the partition?
2) Have updated WIKI pages with instructions HOW to manually change the partition size to meet the installation requirements
3) Optionally... Have the installer to take care of the resize (might be too big cake to handle, though ;-)

Prior to those, I'll just stay on 6.0.x.

I am sure there are quite a few 'noobies' who would like to have those too.

To be fair any upgrade from openelec 6 will require partition resizing. If you try to install the fork it will hit the same issue.

To answer some of your questions:

1) Post #14 gives the partition size requirements
You can see your current partition sizes in the GUI, from memory System>System Info>Storage

2) How to resize your current partition is covered in post #17 openelec.tv/forum/120-news-announcements/82920-stable-openelec-7-0-released?start=15#167313
I followed these instructions and it worked fine.
The only thing I had to do post install was update tvheadend versions and restart

Seems a bit too complicated for a noob like me...

Might switch to LibreElec (though I do not know shall it face the same challenge)...

Thx for trying to help me out!

No, but a backup is always a good idea.
