  • The issues on the videos coming up by hgh bitrate videos like Boston or Blade Runner 2049, the milhouse 9.0 builds useng open gl 4.5 and mesa 18.1.1.

    Any news for AMD Hardware?

  • KarstenL680

    My lastest 7.42.0 is with Mesa 18.1.1. and for AMD i do not know what else to do except make a build with a special AMD kernel. I will look into it on the weekend. My 6.42.2 and 7.42.0 (since kernel 4.16.13) are for AMD and Gemini Lake.

    I download crazycat versions:

    And Tvheadend are not start service.

    Now i'm using:
    LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-8.2.5-3.42.2-4.14.44.img with my DVBSky S952v3

    TVheadend Version: 8.2.111 Transcoding are working OK
    TVheadend Version 8.2.113 Transcoding NOT working
    113 ( At changelog they announce full transcoding support)
    Update to
    -Full transcoding support

    Something as broken transcoding function.

    Thanks a lot for all contributors

    If i find time i will setup a tvheadend on my 2 Intel LE systems and check if i can see a problem with tvheadend. But please be patient. My tvheadend server is running on my backend server for all my LE boxes. The 3.42.2 is the right choise with all you need for Gemini Lake (i hope), but as little as possible change from 8.2.5, except adding encryption.

    Pleaee show me a "ldd <tvheadend binary>", so that i can see about linked libraries.

  • 7.42.0 works with an Ryzen 5 2400G with high CPU Usage at about 50%, CPU Usage is to hih for an A12-9800E.

    6.42.2 works not with AMD, no Hardware Acceleration.

    7.42.0 has other issues, no language selection, no connection to tmdb.org.

  • xorg 1.20 released, to build for AMD use kernel from here ~agd5f/linux - Unnamed repository; edit this file 'description' to name the repository.


    Do you have a PKG_URL for this AMD kernel for me please. I can not figure out what is the right URL for the kernel packae.mk

  • some updates ... what was done:


    - just the kernel 14.14.48


    - just the kernel 4.14.48


    - just the kernel 4.16.14

  • Regarding AMD: Kodi 17 only supports VDPAU acceleration for the AMD platform.

    For using VAAPI (playing i.e. 4k HEVC 10bit videos) Kodi 18 is needed,

    I will try to build a LE 9.0 with all the changes i have done to my 7.42.0 for AMD support. Compiling just started and if the speed is like 8.2.5 this build should be done in about 2h.

  • KarstenL680

    Here you go (hopefully). If it does work for you i will think about making a new thread for that.


    Thanks for all the pointers on AMD GPUs.

    I build a LE 9.0 version with all the patches and config from my 8.2.5-7.42.0, because AMD Vega and Raven APU will never work with 4k and VAAPI on Kodi 17. Thanks mglae for pointing that out.

    So here is the next attempt to get AMD Vega and Raven APU running.

    And for Gemini Lake users the 2 workarounds are also in this version.


    - kernel 4.17 with config from my 8.2.5-7.42.0-4.17

    - kernel-firmware update to git 2a9b2cf5 from date 2018-05-18

    - PR init: add sky42 enhancements/bug fixes by MilhouseVH · Pull Request #2689 · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub already merged and created by milhouse ... thank you

    - added packages cryptsetup, lvm2, mdadm and needed kernel config for encryption

    - Mesa 3D 18.1.1

    - created/added xorg-server-1.19.6-sync_pci_ids_1.20.0.patch

    - added Gemini Lake HDMI bug 105887 workarounds and to activate put i915.glkhdmi=1 or i915.glkhdmi=2 in /flash/syslinux.cfg

    - created/added amdgpu-firmware with latest firmware for vega10, vega12, vegam, raven from here Index of /~agd5f/radeon_ucode

    - disabled kernel driver RTL8192CU RTL8192DU RTL8192EU RTL8188EU RTL8812AU bcm_sta

    - disabled addon driver crazycat digital_devices hauppauge

    my LE 9.0 testing versions are here HiDrive

  • Testet, start stops on the start screen from Kodi 18, this by doing an Update of an existing installation.

    Will test a clean install now,

    Clean Installation the same.

    Tested on two Motherboards, Asrock J5005-ITX and Asrock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac and Ryzen 5 2400G, on both the same, start freezing on Kodi start screen.
