Found a genuie bug. Kodi addon iptv-simple pvr won't work.
« on: January 22, 2018, 06:43:39 PM »
I imported kodi iptv-simple, and kodi says it has a problem with the addon.

I looked at my xenial kodipup-lite, and the directory structure is off.

To the best of my memory, the directory structure is about /tmp/tcloop....usr/lib/kodi/i386-linux-gnu/addons/pvr.iptvsimple

The proper structure is /usr/lib/kodi/addons/pvr.iptvsimple/.

I copied the .../usr/lib/kodi/i386-linux-gnu/addons/pvr.iptvsimple/ to /usr/lib/kodi/addons/pvr.iptvsimple/
and now kodi pvr.iptvsimple works.

But of course this is a very temporary fix.

Until you get this fixed, how do I copy this using bootlocal.sh.

I put a sudo cp , in bootlocal.sh, but it didn't seem to do anything.

Do I need to copy this earlier using bootsync.sh?

Lassar, expecting a prompt response after that remark?  really??


Meanwhile in Linux, the most effective method to resolve path issues is by use of a symlink  which places a file at the expected path location that references the actual location of the file or directory.

If kodi expects to find the addons under kodi, make a symlink then add it to your backup.  The resulting symlink is only a few bytes in size as apposed to using cp command
eg:
Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/lib/kodi/addons/pvr.iptvsimple /usr/lib/kodi/i386-linux-gnu/addons/pvr.iptvsimple
FYI the Kodi extension would be correctly loop mounted to
/tmp/tcloop/kodi/*

Note a Kodi extension is also available in corepure64, whether 64bit ability is beneficial is up to you..

Lassar,

Based on your input I have created a startup script for kodi-pvr-iptvsimple.  Please re-import any related packages, retest, and let me know if it works now.
Thanks.
