Re: LibreElec on Berryboot pulling video from a Wi-Fi NAS

Please don't use Berryboot with LibreELEC, it is not a supported option. If you need a supported multi-boot solution with LibreELEC then use NOOBS. It may not be your preference but let me explain why. The reason LibreELEC doesn't support Berryboot is because the kernel, device tree and firmware use...

Re: Question about Network Booting on the Raspberry Pi 3

Please can you explain me that? As I said, I don't know of a Raspbian solution for the root partition. However for the boot partition, it's explained in the documentation : From this point the bootcode.bin code continues to load the system. The first file it will try to access is [serial_number]/st...

Re: Question about Network Booting on the Raspberry Pi 3

where @UID@ is automatically replaced by LibreELEC with the serial number of the booting client eg. ff449f90. So this is only working with LibreELEC?

Re: Question about Network Booting on the Raspberry Pi 3

It makes me wonder more and more! How can a Raspberry 3 handle 'pxelinux' as bootfile? Everybody says, 'bootcode.bin' is needed? (No matter if via network or from a SD-card.) I don't think it matters, the RPi3 just requests "bootcode.bin" regardless of how dnsmasq is configured. You could try putti...

Interesting.

Re: Wrong time and date

The problem with setting the time over WiFi using ntp isn't specific to LibreELEC. It appears to be an issue with the RPi3 WLAN driver, issue #1519 and likely affects all distributions. All versions of LibreELEC will set the system clock to the date of the release on startup, as explained here . If ...

Re: How to update Kodi add-ons in openELEC?

Which add-on needs to be "revitalized"? If it came pre-installed chances are it's not an official OpenELEC or Kodi add-on but one from a third-party repository, in which case you should contact the third-party for support (or whoever you bought it from), assuming either can still be contacted. I've ...
