A few months ago i noted that librespot didn’t work for me using a X96 Max Plus powered by a S905X3 SOC.
The Coreelec box simply didn’t show up in the Spotify-Connect device list, even without the discovery mode.
Back then i didn’t really care and simply used the great Spotify addon by marcelveldt, but the Spotify connect feature is quite unstable.
So I gave the updated version of librespot a try again, but without success.
The creator of the librespot addon awiouy seems to be quite active on the Libreelec forums, so i reached out for his help.
I showed him the logs, and this is what he answered to me:
Your log contains a lot of such lines:
CoreELEC kernel: "librespot" (4646) uses deprecated CP15 Barrier instruction at 0xab353840
According to this, people aren’t / won’t be able to use Rust on Linux with CP15_BARRIER_EMULATION=y & abi.cp15_barrier=1 (emulation, default value) & arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf toolchain.
This could be the case for CoreELEC.
So I ask the Coreelec devs know if this is a problem that could probably fixed by i don’t know maybe improving the toolchain? Or do you see the problem elsewhere?
He answered that he is willing to cooperate with you guys to fix this problem, that was already reported by other users here.
Thanks and have a nice evening
