1.105 tested and working fine!

You're welcome, thanks for the suggestion. Please try the formal v1.105 and report back.

Hmmm... I just pushed 1.105 but perhaps I can ship a commented /etc/conf.d/kodi-standalone containing a few you mentioned plus some commented text. That might be helpful for folks.

EDIT1: maybe the wiki is a better place. EDIT2:

Unfortunately not, it seems rather scattered.

I found KODI_DATA in /usr/bin/kodi itself (overridable), others can be found here and there on the Kodi wiki (or Arch wiki) discussing specific issues and workarounds, like KODI_AE_SINK, KODI_GL_INTERFACE, ...

Also several non-Kodi-specific variables can have effect on Kodi as well, like SDL_VIDEO_FULLSCREEN_HEAD (for multiscreen use), or LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME, VAAPI_MPEG4_ENABLED and others related to X11 direct rendering.

@ghen - Right, I am saying it might be nice to link to kodi-specific vars.

graysky commented on 2020-09-14 19:31

@ghen - Are you aware of a list of common environment variables kodi uses? Might be nice to provide some documentation.

ghen commented on 2020-09-14 19:27

Thanks! Maybe name it kodi-standalone rather than kodi, because it will be specific to the standalone invocation - running kodi directly will not involve this file.

@ghen - I'm thinking /etc/conf.d/kodi might be a more standard option. I'll go ahead and make the addition.

I verified with KODI_DATA=/tmp/kodifoo and it fired up a "new"/empty kodi instance. ;-) This allows me to move my kodi installation out of /var/lib/kodi without using symlinks.
