The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 1st Beta of OpenELEC 6.0. Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 5.95.1.
The OpenELEC 5.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-6.0.
OpenELEC-6.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-5.0.
The most visible change is the update from Kodi-14.2 Helix to Kodi-15.0 Isengard (beta 1). Beginning with Kodi-15 most audio encoder, audio decoder, PVR and visualisation addons are no longer included in our base OS, but they are available via Kodi's addon manager and must be installed from there, if needed. Our own PVR backends such as VDR and TVHeadend will install needed dependencies automatically. Other than that, please refer to http://kodi.tv/kodi-15-0-isengard-beta-1/ to see all the changes in Kodi-15.
I use a DN2820FYKH intel NUC. I had lots of speed problem in 5.0.X with the 7260 WiFi card so I tried the 6.0 version and here no more speed problem.
But when I unplug the ethernet cable the WiFi don't start automaticaly. I have after each reboot to go to the system configuration panel to activate the WiFi.
When the ethernet cable is plugged in the WiFi stay active even after reboots.
Any idea ?
When i clean my video libary kodi delet all of my video db it says unavailable source under OpenELEC 5.0.8 its all ok it delet only missing video not the complete db (10 usb HDD)!!!
I use Local Files for my video`s !!!
My Source are ok i can play all my files and all HDD shows ok under Video Files!!
I'm not sure what your point is. Generic uses 346.72 in order to support current/latest hardware and Legacy uses 304.125 to support older hardware.
bless –device /dev/disk0s1 –setboot
To clarify: Xtreamer Ultra (1) users need Legacy. The Ultra2 (GT520M) works fine with the normal Generic build. To answer other questions; We will not update the legacy build to 340.xx drivers as that significantly reduces the number of chipsets that the legacy build would support, which largely defeats the point of having it.
What will happen to user that are on a legacy 340.xx, would a strategy to differentiate with a "catch all" x86 nvidia-legacy 304.xx build and a nvidia 340.xx on x86_64 nvidia-legacy builds for more modern machines be an alternative like you have since Openelec 4.2.1?
However, how to replace the language file?
The french language not fully translated in french. I have translated it 100% and i want to replace it by mine.
In KODI 15, now the language files are add-ons and there is no add-ons languages files in openelec version (like osx or windows).
How can I enable ssh? Access over SMB works fine...
EDIT: On booting I have this message: "A start job is running for OpenSSH server daemon (1min30sec)", then it counts up to 1:30 before starting OpenELEC. So I think the ssh daemon doesn't work here?
EDIT 2: This is what I can find in the logfiles:
May 12 10:41:39 Chromebox systemd: sshd.service start-pre operation timed out. Terminating.
May 12 10:41:39 Chromebox ssh-keygen: ssh-keygen: generating new host keys: RSA1
May 12 10:41:39 Chromebox systemd: Failed to start OpenSSH server daemon.
May 12 10:41:39 Chromebox systemd: Unit sshd.service entered failed state.
May 12 10:41:39 Chromebox systemd: sshd.service failed.
OK, I got some more Information:
I upgraded from 5.0.8 to 5.95.1 with soft reset.
After reboot OpenELEC isn't able to create the ssh keyfiles in .cache/ssh, so it runs into timeout. After deleting the ssh dir it's recreated after reboot, but without any files.
Going back to 5.0.8 the keys are created. After upgrading to 5.95.1 without soft reset ssh works, but I don't have access to my mysql database / no library???
After restoring the saved 5.95.1 and copying the keys manually into .cahe/ssh the result is the same: ssh is working, but no library. Deleting the keys and reboot: no ssh but library working. This is really strange...
Sometimes it's too easy...
The chromebox is too fast, I had to activate "Wait for network before starting kodi" in the OE Settings. Now I have my library and ssh
here are the logs, inlcuding wrong channel switch and last channel switch with an complete stop.
edit, seems im not allowed to add the log zip here so i uploaded to dropbox ...
after another quick check before i had to leave i think its solved by the MP Client update ... will ceck later today and report if issue still persists.
i upgraded all clients now, same rpi2 and an ion2, windows clients with kodi 15 working fine.
when zapping now it likes to jump to a wrong channel or just drops completely.
working when stop playback, change channel and start ...
wich logs could be helpful ?
Or even more: github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/pull/3849
ION - legacy build (it was never called ION1)
ION2 - normal generic build
ION2 graphics chipset is a GT218, not supported in NVidia 346 series driver so Legacy build (Xtreamer Ultra1 for example).
It's not clear what is the graphcs chipset in ION. Seems to be something like a GeForce 9400m. Anyway Legacy build too.
[Edit] Oops, missed Sraue reply...
thanks alot for the infos
