My source from git did not have this edit. So I also modified line 137 in the patch as shown above and rebuild the image. But still same error. The device boots but exits to command prompt which seems to have fully functional linux. But when I once again ran kodi from /usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin, I got the same error: unable to create GUI. exiting.
Looks like I am close to running kodi, I know majorkalina has run it on banana pro, so I should be. What am I doing wrong? First I cloned the main branch from your code and then checked out a20. Should I have used a specific version of the branch as outlined on Libreelec wiki? My steps were:
1)git clone GitHub - jernejsk/LibreELEC.tv: Just enough OS for KODI
2) git checkout a20
3) did the edit in uboot_helper as suggested
4) PROJECT=Allwinner ARCH=arm DEVICE=A20 UBOOT_SYSTEM=bananapi_pro make image
I know that there are issues with the video playing, but at least I should be able to get into the kodi interface. Looking forward to any help I can get. Regards.
I think that Bananapi and Bananapi pro use the same hw concept.
My way is:
1. $ git clone --branch a20 GitHub - jernejsk/LibreELEC.tv: Just enough OS for KODI
2. $ cd LibreELEC.tv
3. $ PROJECT=Allwinner DEVICE=A20 ARCH=arm UBOOT_SYSTEM=bananapi make image
Oh yes, you got it without myproposal,
