EDIT: Solved, no bug, issue was windows line endings
Today I was setting up my system again with a clean install of Libreelec 9.0.0. I stumbled upon some weird behaviour with Lirc serial and the autostart.sh file.
System specs are: Core i3 540, 2GB RAM, no dedicated GPU
The Libreelec wiki tells you to setup Lirc on a serial port as following:
This didn't work for me. In an attempt to find out what was going wrong I tried to redirect the output of those two commands to a file. No file was created but now my remote did work.
I did some further tests to see what was going on. Somehow the two commands only work, if their output is redirect to somewhere else. So my current setup for the autostart.sh file is:
Redirecting both to /dev/null makes lirc work as expected.
The python command has nothing to do with lirc. It does not need to be redirected though (maybe because it creates no output).
Also it does not influence the other two as the behaviour is exactly the same without it.
Here is a full debug log: http://ix.io/1ato
It obviously is not a critical issue, but something seems to be wrong.
At least the wiki should be updated IF what I did is the proper fix (I don't believe so)
