Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ lockups

So I tend to send my 3B+ back to Amazon to get a new one without this issues! What do you think? Greets You haven't submitted a crashlog to the LibreELEC forum as I suggested or even a kodi debug log (as others from the LE community have subsequently requested) so there's every chance the Kodi cras...

Re: Samba shares not mounting after kernel 4.14 upgrade ?

Yes this is intentional. The default CIFS dialect negotiated by the 4.14.y kernel is now SMB 2.1 or better. This has been the case since 4.13.y. The original kernel commit in 4.13.y defaulted to SMB 3.0 but this has since been toned down so that SMB 2.1 (introduced by Microsoft with Windows 7) is no...

Re: New Raspberry Pi model 3B+ 1.4 GHz, 330Mbit Ethernet, 802.11ac, PoE

I prefer the spring load, get really annoyed at the Pi3 when it been nudged in a case or similar (like the Google Voice) and doesn't start. Bring back the spring load I say. So much easier and not having to get pliers to pull the SD card out. Or you could attach a length of sticky tape as a pull ta...

Re: [Berryboot]How to create a Image with exist SD card?

Don't use LibreELEC with Berryboot - it's not a supported solution as Berryboot replaces critical core LibreELEC components (kernel, device tree, kernel modules, firmware) with random sub-standard alternatives that will cause unusual and unreproducible problems for LibreELEC. It's impossible to prov...

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

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...

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.
