Kodi binaries for Raspbian

Wed May 19, 2021 7:18 pm

Hi guys, I hope this is the right forum for my concern.
I want to install Kodi 18.9 on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ running Raspbian testing.
I can't find any binaries and in the repositorys there are only this packages:
kodi-data - Open Source Home Theatre (arch-independent data package)
kodi-eventclients-common - Open Source Home Theatre (Event Client Common package)
kodi-eventclients-dev - Open Source Home Theatre (Event Client Dev package)
kodi-eventclients-kodi-send - Open Source Home Theatre (Event Client Kodi-SEND package)
kodi-eventclients-ps3 - Open Source Home Theatre (Event Client PS3 package)
kodi-eventclients-zeroconf - Open Source Home Theatre (Event Client ZeroConf script package)
kodi-repository-kodi - Open Source Home Theatre (official addons repository feed)
kodi-visualization-shadertoy-data - Shadertoy audio visualization for Kodi (common data)
Can somebody help me, getting binaries suitable for Raspberry Pi?

Thx!

What is Raspbian Testing ? as far as I am aware Raspbian has been Stable for years and is now called Raspberry Pi Operating System.

Kodi 18.6 viewtopic.php?f=66&t=251645
I am a volunteer, take what I advise as advice not the utopian holy grail.

I have Kodi installed on all of my RPiOS32 desktops (from RPiZW to RPi4B-8GB)

on this RPi4B-4GB desktop its still Kodi 18.7
the RPi4B-8GB (which has just finished update and upgrade about 5 minutes ago) still has Kodi 18.7

if you want Kodi 18.9 really bad but its not yet available...
1. you'll have to compile it by yourself, or
2. humbly ask @Rascas (the resident Kodi "bonafide expert") to make it available for all of us..(while you're at it better ask for the 19.1 version instead)
"Don't come to me with 'issues' for I don't know how to deal with those
Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"
