I really enjoyed Escalades LE 8.0 Remix but since he's not too active anymore I've felt it's time to rebase the Remix build. The 8.2.x base is pretty outdated if you look into detail. The LE team overhauled the build system and there are pretty usefull features like git handler scripts that make it easier to build stuff without downloading the source everytime. I also wanted to take advantage of new Kodi 18 features and finally beeing able to watch my Amazon VOD stuff without using Chrome everytime.
I know there is ongoing work to integrate RetroPlayer but IMHO this Kodi feature will never be able to compete with standanlone emulation frontends like Retroarch. Also there is no up-to-date Dolphin libretro-core available and since the develeopers will drop DolphinWX support in the near future I had to find a solution for this problem. So here we are, I rebased, updated and adjusted the packages for LE9.0-devel, added QT support for DolphinQT and fixed some non working stuff.
As far as I can tell everything works as fine as the recent Alpha or nightly builds. Retroarch, Emulationstation and also every emulator is tested and works so far, inputstream.adaptive is included and Amazon VOD also works like a charm. Be aware that these are really fresh alpha builds. I've tested them on my HTPC hardware so some Intel & RPi3 devices but of course there can be some problems at first.
Note: you'll need a system partition size of 1024MB - to avoid conflicts I would recommend a clean install.
II. Bug reports / How to ask for support:
If your problem exists on regular LibreELEC then create a new thread. That means you should compare with regular LE9.0-devel if possible. Please include a debug log with all bug reports as this greatly increases your chances of anyone taking an interest in your issue.
Best way to do this:
- Enable debug logging:
Settings > System > Logging > Enable debug logging
- Reproduce the issue
- Upload the log:
Settings > LibreELEC > System > Submit Log > Upload latest Kodi log
- Post the URL in the forum with a description of the problem.
- Post the zip file from the logshare together with information about your hardware.
In the case of Kodi crashing use the
Upload latest Kodi crash log option.
Bug reports without a suitable log will often be ignored - no debug log, no issue - or at best will take much longer to be investigated.
