Kodi (formerly XBMC) for OMV - test phase

  • 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 :-)

  • Hi,
    I could use a little bit help with installing Kodi(XBMC) on my OMV server.

    I followed the instructions in the guide.

    I'm stuck at

    make -C lib/taglib

    I do not have a taglib folder in lib. I refreshed the sources from git but still no taglib.

    thank you.

  • I've got the same problem like pcash007.

    Everything was ok until the final compilation:

    cd $HOME/kodi
    apt-get remove libtag1-dev (no such directory)
    make -C lib/taglib (no such file or directory)
    make -C lib/taglib install (no such file or directory)

    Could someone pls help me ?

  • 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 http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO_c…or_Linux_on_Debian/Ubuntu


  • Guys,
    How do I fix this?

    /opt/xbmc$ make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    user1@server:/opt/xbmc$ sudo make install
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.

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

    i wasn able to use

    make install

    My solution was to git Krypton.

    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

    make -C tools/depends/target/libdcadec PREFIX=/usr/local
  • Has anyone tried to make CEC work the way that TV remote controls Kodi? To save on RAM it would be even perfect if I could launch Kodi via CEC from TV and shut it down every time after use.

  • If you have the configure: error: libdcadec not found

    you must try

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

    and after that start

    • ./configure
    • make
    • make install

    "configure" & "make" must running throug without error!

  • Hey ! thanks very much for this guide. The only problem is... it do not work on my server...

    This is my hardware and software configuration :

    I've tryed to enter xinit kodi and get :

    Then i've tryed the commands proposed by Wetter and i get :

    Would you have some solutions ?
