Is anyone sucessfully running kodi on Fardog64?


I am struggling to get Kodi to run on Fatdog64 710. First I tried to download from SlackOnly. Next I took all the files from my Slackware64 14.2 laptop. Finally I followed a thread on the Murga forums.

The murga forums came close. Kodi actually loaded and ran briefly before closing.

I've never been able to get Kodi (I forget what it used to be called) to work on any distro I've tried. And I've tried several times periodically.
I stick with Myth. At least you can get all the parts (especially the backend) to work together as part of the same sytem.

Hmm, might try MythTV sometime but now am on a quest to get KODI to work on Fatdog64-710.

Am getting the best result by trying to follow the instructions on a thread on the Murga Forums. Start from the command line and it loads and runs for about 20 sec and then dies. Here is the result:

Code:
# kodi
/usr/lib64/kodi/kodi.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/kodi/kodi.bin: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_AsUTF8String
#
I have KODI working on Slackware64-14.2 but this is something different I am trying to do

Used to be called XBMC, from what I recall. It's always been a PITA to get working in Pup; most of the working builds for Puppy have usually been re-worked from the .deb packages.....either that, or the Puppy Package Manager has been pressed into service, to download only, and check for dependencies (and download those, too.) Then .pets or SFS packages get run up. Anyway, I see Gordie's got it working, so...

Way to go!


Mike.
