Install KODI on Ubuntu 17.10


#1

I upgraded from this version

VIM2_Ubuntu_Mate_17.04_4.9. 40 (Khadas VIM2 Max)

to

Ubuntu to Artful version 17.10.

Now I would like to install Kodi 17.6 and I used the following package

aml-kodi-ubuntu_5.41_arm64.deb

but the installation fails :persevere: due to dependency failure.
Any help would be welcome.:roll_eyes:

Try it through Gdebi

sudo apt-get install gdebi

gdebi AML-Kodi-ubuntu_5.41_arm64.deb


#3

Thanks by help.

I still had dependency problems. :disappointed_relieved:

This will fix the dependencies, install the necessary packages

sudo apt-get install -f


#5

I tried that but no wayā€¦:tired_face:

Dear zgenia44
I have to thank you by your time. Unfortunately this doesnā€™t worked once again.
Probably I have something wrong with the installation.
See what I got.

I donā€™t know if itā€™s possible to install Kodi 17 on Ubuntu Vim2, but i am completely sure it wonā€™t work, at least for now, unfortunately Linux is still not supported on Amlogic socā€™s.

If you do succeed to install it, it will be very hard to use it properly because it wonā€™t be hardware accelerated.

I do not have high hopes regarding Amlogic S912 with proper Linux support, i do believe S905/x has the best chance within Amlogic family for Linux driver support.
