@bjo - It's a systemd solution... you need to start/stop the service, not the application.

bjo commented on 2015-03-13 21:36

The service doesn't work here any more. Running kodi manually as kodi results in

/usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg.wrap: Only console users are allowed to run the X server

Putting "allowed_users=anybody" in Xwrapper.config leads to "no permission" on vt7

I will change the arch=any to arch=('x86_64' 'i686') to prevent this from ARM users.

I will add a conflicts=kodi-rbp line to the PKGBUILD but not bump the pkgver.

Sorry for removing the latest comment, yeah I will go for it :)

Ok, now I got it (after comparing both packages "kodi" and "kodi-rbp"myself). And it is not as easy as I hoped in the beginning.

So some more testing leads to:
- the kodi packages do the same things (concerning no user creation) during install on x86 and ARM and look to be compatible with the package.
- on my Rasberry Pi kodi + kodi-standalone-package do not work out of the box (failed with systemd). Did not test on x86.
- kodi-rbp works flawless on the RBP
- kodi and kodi-rbp both do not depend on xorg-server
- installing kodi-standalone-service package above kodi-rbp is possible after removing its integrated kodi.service (it recognizes kodi-rbp as kodi for some reason)
- installing it on top of kodi-rbp messes the installation (as said before).
- the package does not install if the makepkg file contains "conflicts=('kodi-rbp')"

Ok, i think I have learned my lesson, but I think it should be
Arch x86 != Arch ARM
Arch x86 package == Arch ARM package (roughly, concerning compatibility)
kodi-rbp != kodi (!)

Yes, you understand correctly. Also, it's a wiki, go for it.

thealchemist commented on 2015-02-19 09:36

So Arch ARM creates a user while Arch x86 does not? Then I see that it is getting complicated/incompatible now and its not documented.

This is in contrast to the packages I installed and configured for now (using the Wiki). As far as I know that the Wiki officially only supports x86, but if most packages were essentially compatible, and the Arch ARM developers also link to the Wiki, then there should be an update to the Wiki.

Arch != Arch ARM. Arch ARM ships their kodi package with, in effect, this already mixed in. Best advice is not use AUR packages on Arch ARCH without understanding if they are supplying similar functionality or identical files.
