Kodi error while loading shared library

Sat Jun 17, 2017 10:17 am

Hi
I was having indigo error while in kodi/exodus that I decided to update kodi using the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi

Then I tried to run kodi and got the message below:

/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/kodi/kodi_v7.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libbrcmGLESv2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Help me on this please

Thanks

sudo apt-get upgrade

Thanks for the help.

I did as suggested by doing below:

sudo apt-get upgrade

After the upgrade, I still get the same error message when attempting to run kodi.

It is still looking for the shared library as I mentioned in my earlier post.

Help please.

That error is because you dont have a recent kernel installed. Update, reboot and try again.

I wonder if I did it correctly.

I tried the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
reboot
kodi

Still got the same error.

Next:

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
reboot
sudo apt-get install kodi
kodi

And a number of combination with no success.

Is it possible to know the commands to do?

Thanks for being patient with me.

Thats basically that:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install kodi
To start Kodi run:

Code: Select all

kodi
Or start it via the icon on Pixel Desktop menu.

You need to set GPU ram to at least 160 MB for 1080p playback, the recommended for Pi 2 and 3 is 256 MB. You have an option for that in raspi-config or in rc-gui on Pixel Desktop.

If it still doesn't work post here the errors exactly like they appear.

Still not working
Missing libbrcmGLESv2

Error message below:
/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/kodi/kodi_v7.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libbrcmGLESv2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I made some searches. It is saying likely kernel/OS did not update and talking about locale.
Unfortunately I do not know how or the commands to use. Updating OS packages and kernel.

Please help if this will update the missing file and which of the command I should be using.

sudo apt-rpi-update

Or

sudo apt-get rpi-update

I am a newbie with this and does not really know much.

Thanks

I had the same problem on an up-to-date Pi3 and solved it by installing libraspberrypi0

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libraspberrypi0
Hope this helps people with similar issue.

Hey guys,

Same problem here - the only exception is that the file missing is libmicrohttpd. Can't install it using "sudo apt-get install" - the error is "Can't locate the package". Any ideas on how to solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Are you guys really using stock raspbian or raspbian lite? libraspberrypi0 isn't a Kodi dependency but it should be already installed with it. libmicrohttpd is a Kodi dependency it should be automatically installed when you install kodi. If not, you might have broken dependencies, using extra repos which collide with raspbian ones or not using stock raspbian at all...
It would help if you post the complete output of what appears when you install Kodi.
