Thanks for your answer.pcmanbob wrote: ↑Thu Jul 18, 2019 8:06 amWell curl seems to work ok on buster lite for me,
just typing curl gets the response " curl: try 'curl --help' or 'curl --manual' for more information"
and doing this curl -s ipinfo.io/ip returns my WAN IP address.
So have you changed any user settings or may be created a new user ?
Thank you for your input.
I tried to install Kodi with no success (apparently is not ready for Buster yet, can you use it on lite?) and then purged it, I'm worried I "broke" something
I started by visiting this webpage https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/buster ... -raspbian/B.Goode wrote: ↑Thu Jul 18, 2019 9:02 amI tried to install Kodi with no success (apparently is not ready for Buster yet, can you use it on lite?) and then purged it, I'm worried I "broke" something
That seems to be a potential source for your difficulty.
What steps did you take during that process?
(But maybe the quickest way to a reliable working system will be a fresh installation of your Operating System: perhaps there is other hidden damage you haven't become aware of yet... ? )
And also followed another site (I really can't find it anymore) where an user guided to disable buster repo, use stretch repository instead and then install Kodi... I couldn't get it working though and in fact I remember among other issues the command line showed illegal instruction as well at some point.There isn’t a custom kodi version for raspbian buster and, the “debian buster version” is outdated and not working for me.
I updated the whole systen to buster as instructed in this post. After that, I tried to install kodi stretch and the main problem was the libraries libcurl3 libmariadbclient18 are incompatible with buster (replaced with libcurl4 and libmariadb3). The packages curl and rpi-update need the new libraries…
It took me a while to solve all the problems, I leave my solution:
# add stretch and buster repositories (both, don’t worry about conflics)
# remove kodi from buster (if you installed it)
apt-get purge kodi kodi-bin kodi-data kodi-repository-kodi kodi-visualization-spectrum
# install old libraries used by kodi, you have to remove some packages when asked
apt-get install libcurl3 libmariadbclient18
# install stretch versions
apt-get install -t stretch kodi kodi-bin curl rpi-update
# enable autostart (in my installation I commented the group in systemd unit)
