Issue#2269: Linux - PVR addon not found in Kodi on Slackware

  • I'm running Slackware 14.1, and have installed the Slackbuilds for Kodi (Isengard 15.2) and tvheadend (3.4patch1).

    The Hauppauge TV card in the PC works perfectly using other tools (tzap, etc). Kodi and tvheadend compiled ok, though there was a minor error in the tvheadend SlackBuild script relating to the name of the source download.

    I can start tvheadend and configure it--had to manually enter the mux details, but then they display the available services fine.

    When I start kodi and attempt to enable live tv it complains about no backend. Looking at "settings"->"addons" there's no option there to add any pvr add-ons, or enable them.

    I've looked at the wiki, but the instructions are pretty much based on Ubuntu-type distros. They do mention a package "kodi-tvheadend-pvr-hts" being necessary but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent tarball for other distros. Is this needed if compiling from source?

    I did note that some people had problems enabling the pvr addons due to a bug in kodi. Could this be the issue here, and would it be better trying the 16.0 "jarvis" beta?

  • Issue#1146701: Linux - How to install Kodi Addon pvr-iptvsimple?

    Hello Guys, this is Tiago. I'm having some difficulties to install the pvr-iptvsimple Addon for Kodi. First of all i'm using Slackware64 14.2 and I compiled Kodi from Slackbuids(Kodi 16.1).

I tried to do that by following this instructions =>> And seems that is necessary recompile Kodi to work, i don't know how to do that. I tried too convert a RPM package to TGZ and install, but no sucess. This is the last thing to make Slackware my default system and drop the Ubuntu. Can someone help me?

  • Issue#76073: WMC PVR Addon prevents Kodi 16 startup

    I'm using the WMC PVR add-on and have my addondata folder shared via path substitution. When I start up Kodi, I see this error in the logs: ERROR: AddOnLog: PVR WMC Client: Using ServerWMC MAC address from custom addondata '20:61:86:2A:09:12' Kodi will remain at a black/blank screen indefinitely and never start up. This only started to occur when I upgraded from Kodi 14 to 16. Any thoughts? Why is it an ERROR that it's using the MAC address found in addondata? Even looking at the code, I can't figure out why this would be an ERROR. Perhaps it's a copy/paste oversight? Disabling the addon makes Kodi work fine (w/o PVR).

  • Issue#651313: pvr addon creates 'too many open files' - kodi crash

    hi there, I have a windows server with a mediaportal tv server and a raspberry pi3 running the latest osmc version as client. As long as the server is running everything works fine. It's configured to turn off if kodi doesn't need it. So usually when I go to bed I watch some tv and have kodi to turn streaming tv off after some time. Then the server turns off. The pi is running 24/7 which means that the pvr addon can't connect to server from that moment on. Then the MP pvr client writes some errors to the log which imo is ok because the server is off. But after some hours it produces a 'process file table overflow'. From that moment on I can't use kodi anymore. Windows won't open (even the screensaver), I can't access any menus and so on. For hours it produces the error 113, then once 110 and from that moment on 24. Then a reboot is neccessary. As far as I know error 24 means 'too many open files'. But why is this happening and what can I do? Thanks in advance for any help. The

    I'm currently running slackware current 64bit but I've seen this issue happen on 2 other distros as well like gentoo and puppy linux. The laptop isn't running hot and I'm not using all the ram and the laptop literally powers down and reboots to the boot menu. It happened on the 4.4.13 kernel so I'm going to see if it happens on the 4.4.10 kernel I had before that as well.

  • Issue#864893: Linux - [SOLVED] libdevmapper.h not found, slackware 14.2 virtualbox

    This has me completely stumped, as I believe libdevmapper is nearly impossible NOT to install when doing a base install of Slackware. Here's what I've got so far: Slackware 14.2 X64 Aliens 32bit compatibility slackbuilds all of the required packages for installing virtualbox from Upon using the slackbuild script for virtualbox, I get a failure after about 3 minutes as follows: Code: Checking for libdevmapper:   libdevmapper not found at -ldevmapper  or libdevmapper headers not found   Check the file /tmp/SBo/VirtualBox-5.0.14/configure.log for detailed error information.

  • Issue#944934: Linux - Slackware 14.2 SCIM input issue: cannot imput alpha letters(half-width) using scim, no fast

    Here, I am trying slackware 14.2 from 14.1 Im Chinese. I use scim input method before. Then, I hit shift key to switch full-width and half-width input, then, its no necessary to switch input method between English and Chinese. But, now, for 14.2, when I switch to Chinese input method, I can input Chinese successfully, but when I want to input any half-width letter or number, its no way, so I have to switch to English input method and then return back. I think its stupid. And another issue, if I use xfce desktop, fast searching via key input have gone. When I open File Manager, no file item would be selected if a hit some key. I home some one can tell me how to fix these two problem. Then I will back to 14.2. I have to rollback to 14.1 right now.

  • Issue#1155100: Linux - Modules Not Found Issue After Upgrade to 3.10.103 in Slack 14.1

    This is the first time in over a decade of using Slackware that an update/upgrade of any kind crashed my system. I'm sad. :( After updating (using Slackpkg) the kernel from 3.10.17 to 3.10.103 and running LILO, the system would not reboot. It gave a kernel panic warning and a notice that the 3.10.103 modules could not be found, even though they were installed according to Slackpkg. My solution (for the moment, anyway) was to install the old 3.10.17 kernel from the installation media by using the command line and chrooting into my Slackware installation. All went well and I got my system back up, but I'm a bit gun shy about updating again, so I've blacklisted the kernel for the time being. Anyone else having issues with 3.10.103?

  • Issue#6831: Linux - Slackware user interested in Red Hat Certification

    Hello, I just finished my university education and currently trying to find a job. I have been using Slackware for about 10 years now but I'm not really sure how much I know and if it's enough in real-life situations, since how long I've been using it is not a good measure anyway. After thinking things through, I realized that I really love Linux or other UNIX-like systems and I want go into systems and infrastructure development. Unfortunately, the jobs I've seen so far needs me to have 3-4 years of real-life experience with sys-administration. So I have been considering Red Hat Certification before starting with my job hunting, in hope that it would help me land a sysadmin job. Does anyone have experience with this? As in taking the test coming from Slackware camp. Any tips for getting into the field as a fresh graduate? Thank you in advance.

  • Issue#16308: Linux - How to share directory with Windows computers across network for Kodi?

    Hey everyone. I have a media computer (ubuntu-mate distro) in my living room. It has a 4 TB HD that I have a MediaCenter directory. In that I have sub-directories for TV, Movies, Music, etc. I have Kodi installed on that an use that on my TV as a media center. It is connected (wired) to the router. What I would like to do is share that MediaCenter folder/directory across the network so that a Windows 10 laptop can run Kodi on itself and access those files. If possible I would like to make it so that the Windows laptop can view the movies, tv shows, etc but not add, edit or delete any files. Does anyone know of a simple to understand (for a meathead like myself) tutorial tht exists explaining how to do this? Or could someone tell me the steps involved (as easily to understand as possible). If I need to move the MediaCenter folder to another directory (Public or something) I can do that. I want my niece (who knows less about computers than me - and that is a little scary) to be able

  • Issue#16725: Linux - Slackware 14.2-beta: A few remarks on PulseAudio and Audio Quality

    Hi everyone, I just want to share a few thoughts regarding Slackware64-current of 17th January, 2016. 1. PulseAudio is a welcome addition Great: Enlightenment has sound again, finally, and Skype users will also be very happy, now! 2. GStreamer lags behind regarding Audio Quality Unfortunately the only backend for Phonon (KDE sound framework) available is GStreamer. It's supported by more applications and programs than any other backend, this makes sense, to a degree. However, the audio quality of GStreamer is inferior to all other backends I have tested, see Best FLAC player for Slackware regarding sound quality. 3. Other Phonon Backends sound better, especially VLC I miss the Xine backend, but it seems to get little love, recently, and so it makes sense to drop support in Slackware. To compensate for this, I installed Alien BOB's phonon-vlc package, and it provides *much* better sound quality. The difference is noticeable even on 15 EUR speakers! BTW, the MPlayer backend provides

    Started using Kodi 16 RC1 with NextPVR for about 1 week. When I setup a timer to record a program (e.g. NOVA) at anytime at any channel, the timer will add the first NOVA program and also some other programs not related to NOVA. For this instance, it also add the schedule for Rick Steve's Europe. After I deleted the Rick Steve's Europe in the timer, they will reappear after a while. Today, I found "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" in the Recording in which I did not set the timer for it. FYI - My setup is using Schedules Direct OTA in the Los Angeles area.
