CoreELEC Beginner

Hi all,
I just started development last week.
But I have lots of confusing problems. Could provide me some suggestions. thanks.

First, I want to put it into VIM3 pro. For hardware decode h264 video.

  1. I downloaded the source from the GitHub. But I can’t compile it.
    I got the error log “fatal: ambiguous argument ‘HEAD’: unknown revision or path not in the working tree.” after I enter “PROJECT=Amlogic-ng ARCH=arm make image”
  2. Any suggestions/samples for hardware decode? Should I use “gstreamer” or the decode library is ready in the CoreELEC?
  1. Download ready image from https://coreelec.org/
  2. Start the device and use it: Kodi is doing all the hard work.

@vpeter I had downloaded the image and my VIM3 development board could normally bootup with CoreELEC.
What I don’t understand is should I install the toolchain in somewhere(ex. ubuntu, because I’m using ubuntu for development).

If you really want to build your own image you need to clone CoreELEC repo (https://github.com/CoreELEC/CoreELEC.git) and then use command you already wrote

PROJECT=Amlogic-ng ARCH=arm make image

I did it. But I got the error log
“fatal: ambiguous argument ‘HEAD’: unknown revision or path not in the working tree.”

Or should I need to setup any environment before compile it?

You can use this instructions which are mostly the same for CE: https://wiki.libreelec.tv/compile
