I use latest CoreELEC release (stored on a sd card) in my H96. The system booted correctly however I noticed strange problems with enabling ssh. I enabled the option however later the option switched back to off. Of course I couldn’t connect to the box via ssh. Solution:
- install web ssh plugin and login to a box using browser
- reboot device or
ssh-keygen -Aand then
systemctl restart sshd
It seems that system img doesn’t have ssh dir correctly created and ssh-keygen cannot create keys because the dir is missing. That is why sshd fails to start.
