Raspberry PI 3 + Slackware 14.2 Arm + Kodi


I have installed Slackware 14.2 Arm on my Raspberry PI3 using this:

http://rpi.fatdog.eu/

It installed properly and i have updated the firmware with rpi-update

I have installed all required Kodi deps and I am trying to build this slackbuild on it:

http://slackware.uk/slaxbmc/14.2/sla...xbcrpi23/xbmc/

I changed --with-platform=raspberry-pi to --with-platform=raspberry-pi2
otherwise it wouldn't compile.

However, for some reason the compile keeps on stopping here:

/tmp/xbmc-16.1/xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/DVDPlayer.h:73:3: error: 'OMXClock' does not name a type
OMXClock av_clock; // openmax clock component
^
/tmp/xbmc-16.1/Makefile.include:97: recipe for target 'PlayerCoreFactory.o' failed
make[1]: *** [PlayerCoreFactory.o] Error 1
Makefile:420: recipe for target 'xbmc/cores/playercorefactory/playercorefactory.a' failed
make: *** [xbmc/cores/playercorefactory/playercorefactory.a] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs...

Looks like for some reason OMXClock.h is not listed under in includes in the makefile. No idea why, though.

Another thing: You changed
Code:
--with-platform=raspberry-pi
to
Code:
--with-platform=raspberry-pi2
. - Do you think it might be
Code:
--with-platform=raspberry-pi3
for a RasbPi3?

Did you use the ones here: http://slackware.uk/slaxbmc/14.2/sla...ware/xbcrpi23/ ?
That's what I did, but the pre-built Kodi package there didn't work; it said kodi.bin doesn't exist, when it really does! Even executing kodi.bin directly gives the same error!

I also tried building the

I'm also using SARPi on a RaspΠ 3.

you need to make sure you can execute java from the command line, it depends on what version of java you have installed, on one of my boxes i have to:
source /etc/profile.d/jdk.sh then java is available on the command line!

I gave up trying to install Kodi on Slackware ARM, might come back to it sometime..

I ended up using the http://slackware.uk/slaxbmc/14.2/sla...-developer.img image, and it worked flawlessly.

The issue is that the Kodi bins there use ld-linux, not the hardware floating point ld-linux-armhf that SARPi uses.

Thats good to know, did you manage to get it working on Slackware ARM only?

That image is SlaXBMC, a Slackware variant designed to run Kodi/XBMC. It's nice that it's Slackware, but it's only 14.2 (released last Sept.) and not -current, so it doesn't use the hardware FPU of RPi 3`s.

I finally got Kodi to compile on a hard-floating point SARPi (slack-current) for RaspΠ 3`s! I used sbopkg to build the dependencies listed here: jdk, libass, libmicrohttpd, libmpeg2, tinyxml, crossguid, dcadec, yajl, ffmpeg

I was able to get it working this way:
Code:
./bootstrap

autoreconf -if

SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -mfpu=neon-vfpv4 -lGLESv2 -mfloat-abi=hard"
SLKINCFLAGS="/opt/vc/include:/opt/vc/include/interface/vcos:/opt/vc/include/interface/vcos/pthreads"

CFLAGS="$SLKCFLAGS" \
CXXFLAGS="$SLKCFLAGS" \
C_INCLUDE_PATH="$SLKINCFLAGS" \
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/man --infodir=/usr/info --with-platform=raspberry-pi2 --enable-gles --disable-x11  --disable-joystick --disable-vdpau --disable-vaapi --disable-gl --enable-alsa --enable-pulse --build=armv7l-slackware-linux --with-ffmpeg=shared --enable-player=omxplayer

make -j4

Have you tried CMake with 17.0 (Krypton release)?

I build it with no problems with:
Code:
mkdir kodi-build && cd kodi-build
cmake ../xbmc-17.0-Krypton/project/cmake/ -DENABLE_OPENGL=OFF -DENABLE_X11=OFF -DENABLE_VAAPI=OFF -DENABLE_VDPAU=OFF -DENABLE_SDL=OFF
make VERBOSE=1 -j4
(4 = # core on the Pi.)

Yes, 17.0-Krypton was just released 7 hours ago.

I had to increase my GPU memory in /mnt/config.txt (or /boot/config.txt) to 256 MB, which is recommended for Kodi on Pi 2/3s:

gpu_mem=256

I was successfully able to build with:
Code:
cmake ../xbmc-17.0-Krypton/project/cmake/ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=/usr/lib -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/opt/vc -DCORE_SYSTEM_NAME=rbpi -DCPU=cortex-a7 -DWITH_ARCH=arm -DENABLE_OPENGL=OFF -DENABLE_X11=OFF -DENABLE_VAAPI=OFF -DENABLE_VDPAU=OFF
