  • Demetris,


    is it possible to change your FAT_VOL_ID in the mkimage script for Lakka to LAKKA and ad EXT_VOL_ID and label it to disk and add it to the tune2fs command when creating partition 2?


    FAT_VOLUME_LABEL="LAKKA"
    EXT_VOLUME_LABEL="DISK"


    &


    # create filesystem on part2
    echo "image: creating filesystem on part2..."
    mke2fs -F -q -t ext4 -m 0 "$OE_TMP/part2.ext4"
    tune2fs -L "$EXT_VOL_LABEL" -U $UUID_STORAGE "$OE_TMP/part2.ext4" >"$SAVE_ERROR" 2>&1 || show_error
    e2fsck -n "$OE_TMP/part2.ext4" >"$SAVE_ERROR" 2>&1 || show_error
    sync


    If it is not possible, then I will buid it myself with these changes, so I can run it from SD-card. But I think it's interesting for others also to run from SD.


    BTW, or You still on openelec or is it already along time ago You updated your sources on github?


    Thanks

  • I have some bad news. My S802 has some issues with outputing video out from hdmi. So now am left with a bootable device with no video out and looks like is a hardware issue.

    Did it overheat? According me, these boxes need extra cooling if you use it to play games. My OPI-one with self made passive cooler stay's around 40° when playing games with Lakka.


    Can you still ssh into the device?

  • Demetris,


    can I build from your sources on github or do You still need to push updated sources to github?

  • Found that hdmi port was my issue, i will resolder the pins and continue
    Edit:Fixed!
    roel
    only thing left to push is a kodi upgrade

  • Do you have this in zip format its not updating for me

  • Hello Demetris
    after I have been updated krypton 17.0 to 17.1 the remote stopped working. After I had replaced 17.0 again everything worked again. Is this a familiar problem. I have a Tronsmart MXIII TV box. Extra complicated is that I have 2 of thes. 1 gives no problem and the other as i mention.

    Sorry, I was talking about the Lakka sources. Are these up to date an github?


    Edit: Nevermind, found them here: GitHub - libretro/Lakka-LibreELEC: Lakka is a lightweight Linux distribution that transforms a small computer into a full blown game console.
    I see You named the labels to LAKKA and LAKKA_DISK, assuming you are Ntemis. Big thanks for that, I'm already downloading.

  • i'm getting file system corrupted on LibreELEC-S802.M8.arm-8.0.RC2.img.gz for my total revolution mk1 box. I used rufus to put onto micro sd card is this right? Then i used toothpick method.

    Right guys I have been doing it wrong I didn't realise ya had to boot into recovery then reboot with libreelec on a usb stick doh. I was doing it in the micro sd port. Now I am able to boot from usb how do I install to internal memory of android device?

  • I'm getting a file system corrupted also on my m8s when trying to boot from SD-card. I don't know what you mean with booting into recovery and then reboot from usb. Did you burn the image to usb or copy the img file to usb. In the last case, I think you already installed it on your internal nand.
    I'm compiling the sources now myself with the S805_autoscript build in and the dtb file for my box, see if it works then.

  • Download img.gz and use rufus to put it onto your usb stick. Then put usb stick in android box and boot into recovery and select reboot and that should work. Start with android box off push reset button in and turn power on with reset button still in. If it doesn't boot into recovery try a different usb port.

  • Indeed, for some stupid reason it boots from usb but not from SD-card. Ona SD-card you get an error of filesystem corruption. What could be the reason of this.
    By the way, I didn't need the recovery way (didn't work on a M8S), it works with a s805_autoscript.


    So Demetris just to let you know, I booted your latest lakka build for the M8 on my M8S on a USB stick with the s805_autoscript in attachement (unzip first). It's the s805_autoscript from Balbes150 with the BOOT changed to LAKKA an DISK changed to LAKKA_DISK

  • Guys thanks for your feedback.
    I looked at the lakka&Libreelec sources and it seems i have an amlogic autoscript.
    Anyway RC3 release is compiling ;) Will post in the evening the firmwares, until then may the force be with you all.
    Regards
