Vanished Thread: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Stretch

Sun Aug 18, 2019 6:54 pm

The complete thread "[Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Stretch", created by Rascas, seems to have vanished.
It was a long and important thread which got a lot of views.
What did happen?

I think I moved it to media centres, as it didn't really belong in Raspbian.
I did remove a copy of a new post “Best Kodi Builds” written by “saiap”, from it as a duplicate, and also deleted the original posted elsewhere, as it listed various illegal Kodi extensions, and there were several complaints about its spammy nature and illegal content of that post.

The RPF really doesn't want to condone breaking the law.

AFAIK the guide "[Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Stretch" wasn't deleted, only moved, but something might have gone wrong.

It may well be broken as Google and DuckDuckGo link to no live topic.

Best I can find is http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s ... p?t=192499

Edit: it’s possible the move has given it a new topic number so the links no longer work but no idea how you would find it other than trawling the forum page by page...

Edit: Cache links do not go back to the cache so the first page may be it (removed none working start option)

Note there still is a bug in shadow threads (where threads are moved but a copy left in the original) - it’s only 10 years old and still not fixed...

P.S. my apologies, I do seem to have made an error, I will try to contact the forum administrators to see if they can bring the thread back, but I can give no guarantees they can do that.

I'm sorry. :oops: :cry:

P.S.I have brought the main first post back, in media centres, and made it a sticky.

1) In my view this belongs into the Raspbian section.
2) I hope you can bring the whole thread back which contained hundreds of postings. Hundreds hours of work (mostly by Rascas) have gone into this thread and have helped people with all kinds of problems.

Just for comparison: My older threads (for Wheezy and Jessie):
