Kodi (formerly XBMC) for OMV - test phase

    • OMV 1.0
    • Hi there,

      I tried my best to install Kodi on my omv. Sadly it did not work out. Since I am not an absolute Pro on Linux I ask you for help here. I simply post everything I did so you have all the necessary information. Luckily my omv is still running :)

    • I have had the same problem for ages.
      I was hoping the original poster or the moderators will update this guide for OMV 2.X because there a few dependencies that OMV says will not be installed and having got my omv to a state I am happy with, I am loath to break anything that will force me to reinstall.
      So over to anybody who is on OMV 2.X and wants to install kodi and is comfortable with CLI and Linux. I am not with either but I really prefer Kodi to Plex.
      I have donated. have you?

    • Hi,

      This is good, KODI current guide presents the installation of the latest sources of KODI that seem incompatible with OMV 2.X (I do not know for 3.X in beta).

      just git the last stable "JARVIS", install missing dep as seen in official Kodi WIKI, and follow OMV/KODI guide.

      seen on the official KODI wiki kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO_compile_…or_Linux_on_Debian/Ubuntu


      1.Checkout with Git

      Note that the above will download the latest development version; if
      you want to compile a stable branch, you will need to name it
      explicitly. e.g. to clone Kodi 16.0 "Jarvis":

      sudo apt-get install git
      git clone -b Jarvis git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git

    • If anyone try to compile kodi on omv3 from this guide: [GUIDE] Kodi 17 on OMV3

      i wasn able to use

      Source Code

      1. ./bootstrap
      2. ./configure
      3. make
      4. make install


      My solution was to git Krypton.

      Source Code

      1. git clone -b Krypton git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git kodi
      Now i was able to compile kodi succesfully.

      If you have trouble on ./configure about "libdcadec" so try this and start ./configure again

      Source Code

      1. make -C tools/depends/target/libdcadec PREFIX=/usr/local
