The version of Kodi in Buster is out of date and not optimised, therefore it is not worth pursuing a fix IMO.

Just use LibreElec instead is advisable....

Same trouble on B+ model with Buster Raspian Release:
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 8&t=244550

I guess that the issue is from 17.6 version of Kodi on Raspian Buster rather than Raspberry Model...

Do you have xorg and xinit installed?
I'm running Raspbian Buster Lite and have Kodi working fine. starts up without any issue.
I'm using the i3 window manager.

Oh, did not know this tip. I reinstalled Raspian but the stretch version and reused what I did on my previous raspberry...
Will try next time ;-)

I installed buster on my new Pi 4 to use as my new workstation. When I installed Eclipse, I ran into a familliar problem. The 3.8 version of Eclipse that downloads with apt, crashes with the newer version of Java. I am blaming Oracle for this, because they have been adjusting things that should have been left alone. The download site needs a refresh to a newer version of Eclipse, built against the current version of Java.

A new version of Eclipse on Pi is unlikely. Debian have all but given up on it because of the complexities of building it (I tried and failed) for non-x86 platforms. And we get most of our stuff from upstream Debian....

I'm currently liking VSCode, or Code::Blocks as alternatives.
