    Thanks for checking. Then kszaq may have to manually add it to his builds

    aptalca, sorry but I am really starting with docker, and I don't know how to do such thing.

    Gregoir3, it's like virtual mahcines, but lighter .. so, the answer is : pretty much everything ;)

    All you need to do is, in the LE gui, go to addons, install from repo, select the libreelec repo, go to repositories and install the linuxserver repo. After that in addons, go to install from repo, select linuxserver repo and install any addon you like. They all create and manage docker containers that run in the background. Portainer is one of them.

    Once you install portainer, it puts up a webpage at port 9000 so from any computer on your network, you can browse to your LE ip and port 9000 and portainer's gui will let you manage containers very easily.

    Thanks a ton. Will check and revert.

    You can also install docker addons from the linuxserver repo (plex is there). You can find the repo under libreelec addons / repositories.

    One you install, just modify the addon settings and that's it.

    There is also a docker gui manager in that repo called portainer. It lets you manage the containers and images through a web interface

    EDIT: by the way, the issue with your current method of starting plex is that it's creating a new container every time you start it, but it doesn't delete any of the old containers. So you end up with a ton of duplicates taking lots of space. You can use portainer to delete all of those and start fresh. The plex addon in the linuxserver repo manages all of that for you automatically

    great ! thank you very much !!!
    youhou !!!!

    While you're at it, can you try the docker wrapper addons from the linuxserver repo? I didn't get to test them on s905/x devices yet.

    You can find it under libreelec repo / repositories / linuxserver repo. Once you install that, you'll see a bunch of addons that set up docker containers.

    Thanks in advance [emoji1] repo is now in the libreelec repo. Once you install from there, then you can install the docker addons including plex media server from the linuxserver repo

    In qemu, you can load gpu bios from file by adding the info into the config xml.

    If ctrl alt f3 didn't work, but you know the ip, you can always ssh in. Enable ssh in the libreelec settings addon first.

    If you are passing through a gpu, you need the generic version. The virtual build is for a setup without a physical dedicated gpu, for testing and development purposes.

    My main htpc is essentially a kvm/qemu vm with an amd 6450 passed through. It ran LE 7.0.2 (generic) for many months and now it is running the latest betas (generic)

    Turkey is now in the same timezone as the middle east instead of eastern Europe. Yay!

    By the way, the most bizarre part of it is that they didn't change timezones (technically). Instead, they decided to be on daylight savings time all year round.

    But they told people they were getting rid of daylight savings. Confusing as hell and people didn't know what time it was when the change happened. All electronic devices including cell phones were wrong.

    Hi guys,

    Just installed sonarr in docker on an x86 libreelec install on a chromebox.

    Here's the service file contents:

    Save this file on the sd card with the file name sonarr.service in any folder (ie downloads through samba or /storage/downloads through ssh)
    then ssh into le, and type the following:

    systemctl enable /storage/downloads/sonarr.service

    after that you can either reboot or start it manually with systemctl start sonarr

    in a web browser, navigate to ipaddress:8989 and voila

    on arm like raspberry pi, just change the one line in the service file from "linuxserver/sonarr" to "lsioarmhf/sonarr"

    PS. The first time you run this, it may take a few minutes (especially on the pi) because it will need to download the images from docker and uncompress them before the container runs

    I'm currently working on more containers. Some are more involved though so it may be worth it for you to wait till I have them on docker hub

    Hi Irusak,

    I created a bunch of docker containers for nas (unraid, synology, etc.).
    aptalca / Repositories · GitHub
    I wasn't aware that le has docker support. Could you point me to some documentation or any other info so I can start porting some of my containers?


    Really? I did that many times in the past.

    I had loaner flash drives with oe on them, set up with mysql.

    When we had guests, I would just hand them a usb stick they could boot from, and they could access all the media on their laptops

    Speaking of booting from portable, does le change the system time to utc like oe did in the past? It was super annoying to temporarily use on a Windows computer because win expected the system time to be the local time.

    I used to give oe flash drives set up with mysql to visitors so they could watch my movies on their laptops but they would always complain about the time getting messed up

    I upgraded from oe to le as well, had the same issue. Just go into the le settings addon and tick the box wait for network.

    The problem is, that option is off by default and kodi may start before the network is up and can't reach the mysql server
