The OpenELEC 7.0.1 release has been published. Users running OpenELEC 6.95.1 or later with auto-update enabled will be prompted on-screen to reboot and apply the update once it has been downloaded and enabled in some hours. Users running older OpenELEC releases or with auto-update disabled will need to manually update. If you would like to update from an older OpenELEC release please read update instructions/advice on the Wiki before updating. Manual update files can be obtained from the downloads page.

Testing and Reporting

There has been many months of development and testing in the run-up to this releases, but like any major update there are a lot of changes. Unfortunately, we are unable to test every scenario on all hardware, so it’s possible you might pick up on an issue we may have missed (this is why we do beta tests). We would like anyone brave enough to test this release and report issues that they find either with OpenELEC or Kodi.

Thank You!

We would like to thank our users, team members and partners for testing, reporting and fixing issues, creating how-to documents, developing new features, and their donations of hardware and funds to the project. We appreciate your continued support, without it we would not be able to continue.

Upgrade NUC (D34010WY): 6.0.3 -> 7.0.1: Flawlessly 4 months 1 week ago #10

Hello,

I've testet the upgrade from 6.0.3 -> 7.0.1 on an Intel NUC (D34010WYK).

a) Upgrade via "UpgradeDir"
- copy tar file to update dir / reboot
expected result : NO UPDATE (the partition scheme has changed; the installer shall not change the partition sheme without explicit approval; approval ist not possible while doing "automated update")
seen result: Installer does nothing / OE reboots into old system
--> perfect

b) Upgrade with USB stick

reboot; find key for BOOT Menue -> approve usage of complete disk -> installation took several seconds
-> reboots into 7.0.1
-> update addons
-> enable Tvheaded
-> Done: works perfect
--> perfect

Complete update took around 4-5 minutes/ remote works / tvheadend works / etc.....

Great - perfect work !

THANX,
Tom

I've used Imagewriter to put the image onto an USB stick. Reboot NUC / boot from Stick.

And then I've done a complete reinstall. You may need to power down the NUC after installation in order to
make "power on" from the remote work again (the nuvoton chips need a re-init).

The biggest problem was to find out which FKey ist for "boot Menue". F10 on the NUCs.

And there ist not much to re-configure:
- IP
- localization
- user/pass for webinterface
- remount the smb shares.

I'm using a (cheap) one-for-all remote, where everything works out of the box, so no need to tune the remote.xml file.

So it wasn't really an upgrade. Was more of the reinstall B) Thansk for clarifying :)

Just did the manual update on Pi2...

How does one get NFS mounts to work? It was working in 7.0.0, but doesn't work with 7.0.1.

The only issue I had with 7.0.0 was that the systemd run unit didn't work in one instance (I had one for audio files and another for dvd iso files) In 7.0.0 "systemctl enable" gave a bogus error - for a quick test I manually created the symbolic link, rebooted... and it mounted without errors. The other run unit (exactly the same form, only replacing the source directory and target directory) worked fine with the systemctl enable and start (worked after reboots as well).

With 7.0.1 I get a
pallas:~ # mount 192.168.0.8:/mnt/mmedia/Audio /storage/shit
mount: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host
mount: mounting 192.168.0.8:/mnt/mmedia/Audio on /storage/shit failed: Bad file descriptor
when trying to manually mount. No changes on the server. Pings to the server work just fine. rpcinfo doesn't work either:
pallas:~ # rpcinfo -p 192.168.0.8
192.168.0.8: RPC: Unknown host
which doesn't make any sense either when pings work:
# ping 192.168.0.8
PING 192.168.0.8 (192.168.0.8): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 192.168.0.8: seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.827 ms

--- 192.168.0.8 ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0.827/1.120/1.452 ms
The other odd thing doesn't seem to make any difference:

8.8.4.4         192.168.0.8     255.255.255.255 UGH       0 0          0 eth0
8.8.8.8         192.168.0.8     255.255.255.255 UGH       0 0          0 eth0
192.168.0.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0
192.168.0.8     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH        0 0          0 eth0
The routes shown for 8.8.4.4, 8.8.8.8 and 192.168.0.8 (the netmask doesn't exactly make sense) and deleting these entries made no difference. The same IP numbers are accessible even after deleting them.

The problem is access to the media files by NFS.
