sorry, this is probably a stupid question. But what is it about LibreElec that makes kodi run so well?
I read that LE is made to be the bare-minimum OS needed to run Kodi, but what else is there to it?
For instance, I can install and run Kodi on Armbian running on a OrangePi3, but its so slow and choppy that its unusable. But Kodi on that same hardware with the LE operating system runs great.
Obviously LE doesnt have all the unneeded features of Armbian or a separate graphical UI, but does LE also have "better" device drivers or something? Or does it automatically configure Kodi with some tweaks that are missing when i install it manually on Armbian?
Thanks for any info, I'm just trying to learn...
