    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that the LinuxServer team recently published two docker images to help scientists with COVID-19 research.


    The images are for [email protected] and BOINC, both of which distribute compute jobs to the machines of users from all over the world in order to crowd-source scientif1c research related computations. They are both currently prioritizing COVID-19 related research such as "predicting the atomic-scale structure of an important coronavirus prote1n (spike)" and "understanding how it binds to the ACE2 receptor required for viral entry into cells".


    We also just published docker addons so you can easily install them on your LibreELEC devices to help out.


    That's right, you can help out COVID-19 researchers by donating your unused cpu cycles.


    Here's a blog article we published about the images: COVID-19: How it's affected us, and how you can help


    Here's some LibreELEC specific info on the images:


    Both addons are avaliable through the Linuxserver.io repo. Go to addons, install from repository, Libreelec addons, Addon repository and install the Linuxserver.io repo.

    Then go to addons, install from repository, Linuxserver.io addons, services and you can find Boinc and [email protected]


    When you install either addon, it will first download and unpack the docker images, which can take some time. Be patient. You can watch the logs via the following commands

    Code
    1. journalctl -u docker.linuxserver.boinc -f
    2. journalctl -u docker.linuxserver.foldingathome -f


    Boinc: GitHub - linuxserver/docker-boinc

    Fairly heavy image, because the app has no webserver, instead we run guacamole to display the gui app in a browser. Once installed, you can access it at http://libreelecIP:8088

    Switch to Advanced view in the menu, because some settings windows aren't displayed properly in the simple view.

    Add the [email protected] project for COVID-19 research.

    Works on x86_64, arm and aarch64. But not all projects support arm and aarch64


    [email protected]: GitHub - linuxserver/docker-foldingathome

    Lighter image, as it has its own webserver. Once up, you can visit its relatively simplistic webgui at http://libreelecIP:7396

    For more fine grained control, you can access it remotely from another machine that has FAHControl installed. The default port for that is 36330 and there is no password auth.

    Unfortunately, [email protected] is x86_64 only


    Now, get folding!! ;)

    It's not an iptables issue, it's a docker thing. You're likely putting the containers in the default bridge network, which doesn't allow them to connect to each other via container name as dns host name.


    The link you provided uses docker compose, which by default creates a "user defined bridge" network, which allows containers to connect to each other via container name.


    What you should do is, create a user defined bridge network via "docker network create mynet"

    Then when you're creating the containers, select "mynet" as the main network.


    Here's a detailed explanation: Using Docker networks for better inter-container communication

    Just to provide an update here, we updated both jellyfin and emby addons in the linuxserver repo. They now both support omx hw transcode.


    Go into the addon settings and toggle openmax. When the container is recreated, necessary devices and drivers will be mapped in.


    One gotcha though, neither supports hw decode. They only do hw encode. According to jellyfin documentation, that is an upstream limitation: Hardware Acceleration | Documentation - Jellyfin Project


    I also tested v4l2 (everyone says it's the future). It is detected and used by both emby and jellyfin (again, only for encode) but unfortunately the image has a green filter over it. No idea why, so we didn't enable that in the addon yet. Let me know if you have any idea what causes it and/or how to fix it.

    Hello new here,


    After scrolling down 7 pages of this, some a little bit older, i ask, whats the best way to install plex server on libreelec? Use dockers, install directly, apt-get does not work. Does plex server comes as a add-on or i have to add a repo?

    Libreelec has no package manager so no apt-get. However, there are scripts to install Plex natively (and update) on libreelec. Escalade posted links to them in the previous page.


    Another way of installing Plex is via docker image. There is an add-on in the repo for that. You first install the linuxserver repo from the libreelec repo, then you'll see various docker add-ons in there.


    Which way is best is arguable. I'd say whatever you're more comfortable with is the best way. Try and see.

    The emby kodi addon (the one that integrates with the kodi database) works great. It feels like you're using the kodi database. Better than the official Plex addon imo (that one has a separate interface).

    Afaik pfctl is an openbsd tool. I doubt it's available on linux.

    Back from a trip I see your message, I tested and it looks like the add-on updated to V.1.04

    But I open the configuration page and see the same crippled picture as before!

    Maybe a fresh install would do it, but this is not possible because the other linuxseerver.io addons require it and so can not be deactivated/deleted etc....


    Any idea ?

    In your userdata folder for the updater addon, there should be an empty settings.xml file. Delete that and restart the device. With the new version, that file won't be created anymore (which was the original issue where kodi leia somehow fails to read the addon's main settings file if there is a blank but properly formatted user xml in userdata)

    It's going to appear in the container (and in the Plex gui) as "/data/movies" as the addon settings page says.


    You really should read this: LinuxServer.io docker addons and general docker info

    It's one or the other. What escalade is referring to is a whole another method of installing Plex.


    If you already set up the docker addon and Plex is working, you don't need to do anything else. It will automatically update when you reboot your box.

    Ok... I understand, docker is like VirtualBox o WMare (emulation virtual system). Docker under Libreelec is LinuxServer.io under Libreelec addon repository (whale symbol). I must install this addon and with docker management gui called Portainer (http://<ip>:<port>) I can import Docker images for Librelec.. it's right?
    From Portainer gui I can download docker plex image with this command : "docker pull linuxserver/plex"


    Tonight I try to install Docker addon and download plex docker image...

    To configure Plex I confused...docker commands example are very strange.

    There is an add-on for Plex already. You should use that one. The add-on settings let you configure everything automatically. No need to do it manually via portainer.


    You can use portainer to manage things we don't have an add-on for.


    Also, read this: LinuxServer.io docker addons and general docker info

    Alomon just pushed an update to the mariadb addon. You can now enter database name, user and pass into its settings and it will create the database. Keep in mind that it only works during initial set up (not when there is existing data). So you would have to uninstall the addon and delete all data (nuke any existing database), then reinstall and enter the info into settings.

    That's what I meant by using the root password no longer working for nextcloud.


    I'll get a PR in to allow mariadb to create a user defined db, user and pass on first start. But until then, you'll have to manually create those. You can do the following to get access to mysql cli in mariadb: "docker exec -it docker.linuxserver.mariadb mysql -u root -p"

    It will ask for the root pass, then let you in.
