How to build addon for CoreELEC?

Hey!
I’m curious how can I build addon for CoreELEC? I know it’s kind of different than download an arm version of addon for example. Is there a step by step guide for it?
I need to build an inputstream.adaptive addon from github repo, because I need latest version to make my TV addon working.

Instead of make image you build just addon (or build image first and then addon)

PROJECT=..... ARCH=arm ./scripts/create_addon inputstream.adaptive

and you need to adjust version in file packages/mediacenter/kodi-binary-addons/inputstream.adaptive/package.mk.

Thanks for your reply :slight_smile:
Tried to build latest version but got error when it was 166/169

Maybe you know what is wrong? :thinking:

As you can read from log you need to look inside files like

/home/mrx/CoreELEC/CoreELEC/build.CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-19/.threads/logs/167.log

to identify which package failed and why.

Here is the log file: hastebin - uhazerezil (kodi.tv)
Maybe there is problem because i’m trying to build it on WSL instead of native linux environment?
Based on this:

-- Could not find hardware support for SSE (missing: _SSE_TRUE _SSE_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for SSE2 (missing: _SSE2_TRUE _SSE2_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for SSE3 (missing: _SSE3_TRUE _SSE3_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for SSSE3 (missing: _SSSE3_TRUE _SSSE3_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for SSE4.1 (missing: _SSE41_TRUE _SSE41_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for SSE4.2 (missing: _SSE42_TRUE _SSE42_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for AVX (missing: _AVX_TRUE _AVX_OK) 
-- Could not find hardware support for AVX2 (missing: _AVX2_TRUE _AVX2_OK)

I’m not familiar with building is WSL. Bzt this doesn’t look good

-- Check for working CXX compiler: /home/mrx/CoreELEC/CoreELEC/build.CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-19/toolchain/bin/armv8a-libreelec-linux-gnueabihf-g++ - skipped

Installed g++-arm-linux-gnueabihf and gonna try to build again :slight_smile:

#edit still no luck. Do you think it could work better on Ubuntu instead of WSL?

I’m sure it will work better on Ubuntu - most of us is using it.

Ok, so I’m gonna install Ubuntu and will report back with any progress :smiley:

Hmm… I got some progress but still get some errors. Please check it: hastebin

I think this time I did something wrong.

Command I’m using is: PROJECT=Amlogic-ce ARCH=arm ./scripts/create_addon inputstream.adaptive

and version in package.mk:
PKG_VERSION="2.6.11-Matrix"

#edit
I got it! :smiley:

ALL ADDONS BUILT SUCCESSFULLY

Something is wrong with latest release so I compiled 2.6.8 version which is working well with my Live TV :slight_smile: Thanks again for your effort!

I think inputstream.adaptive will be updated & added to the CoreELEC repo within the next few days, isn’t this the way it usually works? So if you wait a few days it could save you the trouble :grinning:
