I'm unable to start kodi by using the service file from this package, but I still can start it without any problems by issuing (as root):

sudo -u kodi /usr/bin/xinit /usr/bin/kodi-standalone -- :0 -nolisten tcp vt7

I always get this line in my Xorg.0.log file:

[ 31.070] (II) systemd-logind: got fd for /dev/dri/card0 226:0 fd 11 paused 1
[ 31.070] (EE) Error systemd-logind returned paused fd for drm node

And, after that, the wrong "glx" driver gets loaded (the default one in the xorg package), and kodi dies out in a black screen, spitting out crashlogs in user kodi's home directory.

Does this happen to anyone else? any ideas on how to fix this?

(I'm not claiming this package is broken, just asking for help...)

my apologies. Was my config. Did a factory reset and it worked. There was just absolutely nothing in my journalctl or service status. Sorry for shooting from the hip like that.

@gss - Works fine on several different machines. You haven't provided any debugging info to help you.

Thank you guys!
I tried it with the /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config, but it did not change anything.

@graysky: Thank you, I will change this and see, if I like the behavior better this way!
@francoism90: Starting Kodi is no problem, getting out of it is more difficult. Kodi keeps restarting, when I want to exit. Thank you for your help anyways!

@graysky: Remembered I'd needed to enable this on a previous build with an Intel GPU. Think it depends on the hardware and setup.

@Hell-G: Thought your problem was starting Kodi, think indeed this bug is something else as describe by graysky.

@Hell-G - The restarting when you exit from the GUI is a bug I have not been able to squash. We want the service to restart if kodi crashes, ie, an unclean signal. The problem is that exiting from the GUI causes systemd to think it was unclean. You can remove the restart= line in the service if you want, but know that it won't restart if kodi crashes if you do so. See the systemd.service man page for more.

The /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config shouldn't be required for most systems... I believe some users of on of the radeon video chips needed it. Intel and nvidia should not need this.

@Hell-G: Correct, see

@francoism90: No, I did not do anything else than install the package. You mean
needs_root_rights = yes
