@jayki: I'm not sure what the reason for this issue was as I cannot reproduce it. If you set the API level to 99 in the PKGBUILD to get the current git version: there was an outdated dependency. I just fixed this in the PKGBUILD.

If this does not help you, please provide more information on what kodi packages you have installed and if you have changed the API setting in the PKGBUILD.

Since kodi v16 package is available, can the default API for this package change to 16?

@TheSaint: Do you use the latest version of this PKGBUILD or did you modify it by any way? It should use a git revision which does not look for p8-platform. Also see the comments below.

If facing problems during compilation like

"By not providing "Find p8-platform.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project"

You should change the dependency to libplatform-git instead of libplatform in the PKGBUILD

Thanks for the hint! Changing the dependency indeed fixes the build of this package but it breaks building all currently available kodi pvr plugins (or at least those I tested). The required changes are still under review. Here some examples:

For now I therefore changed this package to stick to versions behind the naming change with the intention to change this as soon as the plugins get ready.

This whole thing will become a bit ugly in future. It seems like they want to keep the old version of kodi-platform for Jarvis, meaning that a single version of kodi-platform won't work for stable and git versions for quite some time... Not sure how to handle this, yet. Probably we need some kind of stable version of kodi-platform, but as far as I can see there are no official release tags (which is why I built this package in the first place).

Please change dependencies from libplatform to libplatform-git, because platform pkg was renamed with
package can not be compile with libplatform now
