@stuart - I updated to 1.98-1 a few min ago. Try this:

# systemctl stop kodi (or kodi-gbm)
# userdel kodi
# groupdel kodi
# rm /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
# pacman -Rs kodi-standalone-service (or gbm if you use that)

Reboot, then build/install 1.98. Does it work as intended?

Nope Graysky apols as haven't played with Arch for over a year and its like starting anew so just getting up to speed. I am not sure what it is maybe its my EFI arch install but even with a pacman -U it just hands at reached graphical target. 2 days ago it just installed no problem think that was without a EFI boot part but only difference.

Anyone done a fresh install in the last day or so?

Also did the /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config which should contain the following:

needs_root_rights = yes

Just me doing makepkg -si which is my usual also the likes of yay does the same. I will let it fail and then just do pacman -U

@asm0dey - I don't understand your request. @stuartiannaylor - Try 1.97-2 but you shouldn't need both installed at the same time. You're either running kodi-x11 or kodi-gbm.

:: kodi-standalone-service and kodi-standalone-gbm-service are in conflict

Seems 20.01.01 something has changed as makepkg -si just produces the above x86_64?

Could you please mark all .service files as config? I'm running kodi from another and every upgrade breaks this service

I just posted something in the forum:

I am just trying to understand what the deal is with this package, and why we are doing some of the things we are doing.
