5schatten I would simply not engage with escalade at all and just focus on your work. I can't blame you for taking some time off. It's tiring dealing with toxic people. I also can't blame you for abandoning this project, as it has been a massive amount of free work without much appreciation to show for it.
I guess things will improve over time but at the current state everyone should avoid Nvidia hardware for HTPC usage & currently it's planned to drop the Nvidia support for LE10 / K19. So on the long run get rid of Nvidia hardware if you can or deal with the user experience you get.
EDIT: It looks like someone will just have to add support for EGLStreams to continue supporting NVIDIA in LE10/K19.
That's pure silliness, if I understand it correctly. Half of the emulators included in RR require some sort of GPU horsepower. Imagine Dolphin without NVIDIA. I'm working on Steam support primarily for gaming with LE/Kodi. I get it that NVIDIA hardware support is beyond frustrating on Linux (Torvalds gave it the correct gesture). However, I will either be forking LE or switching to running Kodi on Arch Linux if that is the case because I, like so many others, have sunk so much $$$ into NVIDIA hardware over the years, and they really do make the best hardware. Le sigh. I'll need to find the right tree to bark up.
I have been working on and off at getting SteamOS to work.
I managed to get Xorg GUI applications running inside Docker. Here is xeyes:
I also submitted a Pull Request to update Docker to the newest 19.x version because it supports NVIDIA GPUs without using nvidia-docker. Just needed to tweak a patch. Maybe I also have to update the `PKG_REV`? Feel free to comment/merge if everything looks good to you!
Download the file above and put it in the update map.
UPDATE: I figured it out, I put the update file (.img.gz) into /storage/.update and rebooted
Sorry, which file? I don't see any links or attachments. If you could describe what the file is, I could try finding it myself?
LE 9.1 | Kodi 18.2 builds
and so I am stuck on the old build: RR-20190423-716b9f8
No updates show up in custom channel. It looks like I need to update to LE 9.8 / 18.3 -- how can I do this without re-installing? Should I update using the Kodi update channel?
The only approach that makes sense to me would be something like this:
so either use an Arch or SteamOS based Docker container to run your Steam games. Or get a Nvidia GPU and use Gamestream.
Nice! Looks pretty doable with the Docker add-on for LibreELEC. I'll let you know if and when I manage to find time to get it to work.
5schatten How difficult would it be to include 32-bit system libraries (like multilib on Arch) so we can run Steam on LibreElec? It looks like it might amount to tearing apart LibreELEC and building another distro.
