RetroELEC Kodi+Wayland+Emulationstation+RetroArch (x86/XU4/RPi)

  • I'm getting no output at all.


    It locks up trying to connect.


    Code
    1. LibreELEC:~ # bluetoothctl
    2. [bluetooth]# nnect to bluetoothd...
  • Logs?

    This build wont create log files for some reason? I've tried restarting the logging on and off a few times and also done another clean install?

    The logfiles dir is just staying empty.

  • Sounds odd. You can run "createlog" through ssh to populate the directory manually. Also post output of bluetoothctl.

  • Strange. Manually creating the log works fine. Still no luck through Kodi.


    Code
    1. ##############################################
    2. # LibreELEC #
    3. # http://libreelec.tv #
    4. ##############################################
    5. LibreELEC (community) Version: devel-20170627
    6. LibreELEC git: a88207b1fb4153cbf9448b59d1553d93400a285a
    7. LibreELEC:~ # createlog
    8. LibreELEC:~ # bluetoothctl
    9. Waiting to connect to bluetoothd...

    This just hangs and wont connect.

  • No, I cut the nvidia-legacy driver from the latest build as it crossed 512MB and thus won't fit on a standard LE /flash. I'll have a look if there's something that can be slimmed down.

    Do you keep latest version with ION support? Or is it possible for you to make a build with legacy support and remove some emulators like dolphin as ION can't emulate Wii

  • Can you check output of systemctl status bluetooth? Also try to run /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd manually.


    Code
    1. ● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
    2. Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; disabled; vendor p
    3. reset: disabled)
    4. Active: inactive (dead)

    Trying to run bluetoothd manually results in system lockup.


    systemctl start bluetooth seems to start it.

    However I still can't connect any devices and the adapter still can't be found in Kodi.

  • And bluetoothctl after startup of the daemon? You did activate bluetooth in LibreELEC settings right? Not doing so would result in the daemon not starting.

    Latest has legacy drivers. I'll keep them for now, but they will get cut sooner or later then you'll need to build yourself. I simply do not care for decade old hardware that I don't even have.

    Yes, activated in settings, bluetoothctl has no change.

  • Then I've no clue as to what's the problem. There's no relevant commits since the working build from june 15. There's updated busybox and kernel, both which were reversed in the test builds without success. Might be due to my build system being a rolling distribution, so updated packages there could cause unforeseen issues with packages due to the nature of LE's toolchain. I'll do a build on my older build system some time this weekend to see if that solves it.


    Poking around with bluetoothd (perhaps using strace or adding debugging) might give some clues.

    No worries, i'll have another look over the weekend and see if I can find anything.


    Let me know when you have anymore builds to test.

    Cheers

  • Just a bit more info, just tried with a bluetooth dongle and have no problems at all with bluetoothd recognising and connecting to this.


    Definitely seems to be a problem recognising the internal adapter.

  • Dear all,


    I don't know if this subject has already been adressed :


    I would like to use an external bluray player ... and so... watch movies thanks to this.


    Many other release cannot work due to the encryption. But.. as I saw this release has a Blu-ray playback feature... my question is : How does it really work ?


    I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 and I have already installed Makemkv add-on


    Many thanks in advance for your help
