@elParaguayo - You are on x86_64 not ARM right? What is the output of id kodi?

I'm having issues exiting the program. I've enabled the service so it boots into Kodi but selecting Exit, Powerdown, Suspend etc just causes Kodi to hang. I need to switch to another terminal and login in order to reboot.

When running Kodi as a normal user from a graphical environment, this doesn't happen. Is this a permissions issue for the kodi user? There were some comments on the kodi forum (for the Arm package) about needing a polkit file. Don't think there's one here - I tried creating one manually with no change, but I could have got it wrong!

@ghen - Good idea,

Hi, could you add StandardOutput=journal to the unit file, to avoid it to inherit from StandardInput=tty and print xinit output on the screen? (which no other unit does) This allows to get a :)

@asm0dey - If you want to override the package provided files, place your own in /etc/sysusers.d/ ... see man sysusers.d

@graysky I mean mark .conf and .service files as backup, please

Arch ARM is not Arch. They are not the same platform and within Arch ARM there are different platforms. Arch ARM kodi packages ship with their own kodi.service that works on it.

Thats a shame then as need a common install across platforms. I will go back to creating my own service prob then, just noticed you in the Arch Linux Arm forum in the kodi section so was wondering if that was your intent.

The update works fine though but for some strange reason fails on first reboot then works :)

This package is NOT for any Arch ARM kodi. x86_64 only!

I will give it a go the install is trashed at the moment with windows as it turned out to be lack of signal on a dvb.

I did do a fresh install of just xorg normal kodi and the startx worked for me but will try yours again. Prob be a couple of days as playing with the Pi4. Are you trying the same with Pi4? as interested?
