Newer versions of the post_upgrade() hook in the readme.install file have been messing with my Kodi user permissions.

Since 1.95-1, the line usermod -g kodi -G audio,input,network,optical,video kodi has been removing the kodi user from manually assigned groups that I keep to give access to media directories. Wouldn't it be friendlier to custom setups like mine to use usermod -g kodi -aG audio,input,network,optical,video kodi?

Yes I can also confirm this issue. Gladly it can be fixed by enabling the "dim" screensaver add-on in KODI settings ...

Anyone else having problems with the display turning off after 10 minutes? I already made a thread here

@Ranjak - Please see your BBS thread and comment there (ie confirm that no changes are needed to this package).

@ajdunevent You're not alone, I opened a thread here :

Also, I'm on nvidia (dedicated desktop), which seems to hint that this isn't a vendor-specific problem since you're on intel apparently.

Maybe you could post your failing xorg log (it should be in /var/lib/kodi/.local/share/xorg) on the thread I linked above.

The upgrade to xorg 1.20 seems to have broken this for me. I rolled back the following packages:

xorg-server-1.19.6-2-x86_64<br> xorg-server-common-1.19.6-2-x86_64<br> xorg-server-devel-1.19.6-2-x86_64<br> xf86-video-intel-1\:2.99.917+829+gd7dfab62-1-x86_64

Hope I'm not the only one facing this issue. Let me know if there is anything more useful I can provide to help.

@graysky - Most of the platform-specific builds of Kodi for ARM (such as kodi-rbp) already include a service file, so this package is unnecessary on ARM generally.

@rpcameron - There is no documentation advising ARM users to install it. 1) arch='x86_64' not arm-x 2) comments on line 7 and 8 of the PKGBUILD itself 3) warning on the kodi wiki page

Not sure why you posted...

@khvalera - This package causes problems with Arch ARM... best to at least discourage those users away from it.

replace arch = ('x86_64' 'i686') with arch = ('any')
