I love the actual LibreElectric app so far !
HOWEVER, I just gave up on installing it after trying at least four times, using different ways - even an SD card.
THEN I realised that the DEFAULT OS is 'Raspberry pi', NOT a standard PC ('Generic AMD INTEL NVIDIA').
I'm a medium-level PC/phone user, and certainly not a novice.
(For example, I run two versions of Windows on my PC, using dual boot)
But I'm not an expert in LibreElectric.
NOW USUALLY with software, the DEFAULT works for most people.
So I just kept trying to install using the DEFAULT: which was Raspberry Pi, NOT a standard PC.
(NOTE: I just assumed it used 'Raspberry Pi as some kind of 'base', and installed it).
Are most LibreElectric users Raspberry Pi users?
If so, I can totally understand that being the default.
But for an ordinary user like me, that totally screwed me up.
Because of my particular need, I gave up on LibreElectric and even instead tried to run a whole Windows 10 install from a USB stick as an alternative - which took ages.
(The whole reason Im wanting to use LE is because my media PC in the loungeroom has a faulty drive and is now incredibly slow. I need an interim option to speed up playing dvds and videos).
If Raspberry Pi is NOT the main thing most people use, is it possible to make the DEFAULT a standard PC (The 'Generic' Option), to avoid confusion?
(Of course if you get SPONSORSHIP money from Raspberry Pi, I understand. )
Or is it possible to put a WARNING somewhere - on the Creator or the download page?
("PC USER? Use GENERIC option!")
(I know its pretty standard practice to abuse anyone online who says anything that even looks like a complaint. But please know I've been polite and I took the time to join this forum just for the purpose of saying this, because I believe it will help OTHERS. Thankfully I gave it one more go and worked out he problem.)
