CoreELEC 19 Matrix Discussion (Kodi RC)

same 'too many open files"

confirm

Maybe you turn on debug logging, do make a reboot and replicate the issue.
Then you can open a issue on https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/issues and upload the Kodi.log.

Best would be to replicate the issue with another platform like Linux or Windows. Amlogic isn’t official supported by Kodi but they can’t close their eyes if it happen also on official supported platforms.

EDIT: it looks like a samba issue.
So correct place for a ticket would be https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/issues

driver only works on old Kernel - it will not work in Matrix and this is unlikely to change - ever.

I think you are giving erroneous information, you could be better informed with @cdu13a
before passing wrong information to users.
CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-19.0-Matrix_nightly_20210207 it works perfectly KI Pro!

dvb works perfectly on Matrix on the Ki Pro ?

Please someone post at least one log next time!

Please try this:
rename/copy /storage/.config/samba.conf.sample to /storage/.config/samba.conf
Add this in global section like this:

[global]
   max open files = 65616

I’ve set the max open files = 65616 in samba.conf and restarted. Unfortunately same error. The last several lines of the kodi.log as follows (sorry I can’t attach a file as new user)

I notice in the Samba doc it notes:
“The limit of the number of open files is usually set by the UNIX per-process file descriptor limit rather than this parameter so you should never need to touch this parameter.”

Perhaps it’s not the Samba limit?

I’ll test tomorrow with the directory causing the issue directly attached with a USB drive and see if it still occurs so we can narrow down to Samba or otherwise.

Thanks

Can you try with Ubuntu Kodi nightly and/or Windows Kodi nightly?
Just to see if the error is located in Kodi or samba service and if it’s a platform independent error.

I have the same error:

let me try with Ubuntu

EDIT:
Same on Ubuntu, so it’s a Kodi issue

Good day,
i install Coreelec 19 nightly on my Beelink Gt1 mini 2/32 gb. Minor video jams occur during the same time interval during playback. On 9.2.5 stable no problem. How do i create a problem log? Thank you.

Maybe try pastebin and post the link.

@vpeter
Many thanks getting VNC plugin to work :wink:

Seems this is a Matrix problem so you will have to wait for the Kodi team to resolve it.

OK, I’m in no hurry, although I like to check nightly builds and if something goes wrong I can always go back to the previous one

Can you please post your dmesg log in the last nightly working and in a nightly that it doesn’t work?

Can you do the same @joaolevi ?

Yes, I can, and can you give command flags or prefixes for dmesg?
