Thank you Philippe. Why did you choose to keep settings separated? Your last 15.2 release was very convenient to test as all settings were there... moreover as far as I read on Kodi blog it is not foreseen any major settings break from 15.2 to 16.

In any case, a HUGE thanks for your work and service rendered to our community!

:lol: :roll: :lol: reasons are multiple ...
1 I don't totally believe ... something for end of dev. in stable release ... 100% true in a beta
2 for this test ... not sure to add any risk to the existing running environment for user ... so separate is my choice
3 copy, before use, the actual environment to the new one to restart with your actual settings is easy (just a simple cp )
4 changing this is you want to share ... is easy just a variable to change in startup script
5 I always work on the idea to have ALL my own QPKG for HD_Station using the user environment in place of admin or root OR using admin if it's the REAL choice of the user ... why ... because through Kodi (and some others) I know a dozen of possibility to hack the system ... so if you are root or admin ... please calculate the risk ...
My opinion, not change from a while, it's that ALL NAS provider do a major error by assuming usage of admin / root as owner of NON system application ... and I am not near to change my opinion ...
6 because I do what I want with my own QPKG ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

At end ... when QNAP deliver the good and complete Kodi 16 version ... you be sure to go back to the know environment ... so perhaps just wait ...

Even if part it's joke (free to you to select) ... hope this is enough as response ...

Of course, you are the king of your castle. :)

You mentioned that it is enough to change path in startup script. What is the easiest way to do it? Installing the package and then go to /opt/myKody/... to find the file an change it?

Thanks!

Hi,

:lol: : the king of the dwarves in the castle dwarfs (sorry for the dwarf, I speak about computer knowledge ... )

In ALL case I don't recommend to follow this change BUT you are the king in your (card ?) castle ...

Based on the fact that mykodi16 had been installed and activated (not run ... or run)
1 just go to /share/homes/admin
delete (rm) or rename .kodi folder
create a link to the "official .kodi" folder
get kodi install path : getcfg KODI install_path -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf
the "official" .kodi is in Install_KODI_path/root/.kodi
(you can do it in few command)
cd /share/homes/admin
mv .kodi .kodi_16
ln -s $(getcfg KODI install_path -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf)/root/.kodi) .kodi


It's ALL

ALTERNATIVE

2 go to mykodi16 folder startup_script
cd $(getcfg mykodi16 install_path -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf)/startup_shell
change in startup_mykodi16.sh file the export HOME
... kodi don't do lot of verification and accept lot of thing as is ... :roll:
get as previous KODI .kodi path
replace :
export HOME=/share/homes/admin
by ex. if KODI install path is : /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/KODI :
export HOME=/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/KODI/root

It's all ...

Philippe.
NB first method is better ... because you don't change anything in the script ...

Re: [Community QPKG kodi 16 Beta 4 (last)] for HD_Station 3.1

Postby father_mande » Mon Dec 21, 2015 2:34 am

Hi,

I am please to announce the Beta 4 of Kodi 16.0 ... it's a RC release (just before delivery ... so very near of final)

As usual all PVR modules are provide

To be compliant with previous Beta ... the .kodi use is in /share/homes/admin and NOT in root/.kodi of the QPKG
WHY I keep it ... it's because it's more easy to save all your parameters than using a folder in the QPKG (case of re-install, update, etc.)
I will provide later a version compatible with the other mode ... but no risk and you don't lost anything (just a copy or archive to do to get back all your parameters)
if you want to use old method (update using settings of kodi 15.2) just ask me I will provide you THE file to change ... (sorry but I have not lot of free time for now)

Philippe.
Download in first post of this topic ...
Now I will move to Kodi 17 ... to keep QNAP provide the "official" version ...

hi,

Shortly workaround ...

After install and a first run (just start then stop)

open a console then
cd /share/homes/admin
mv .kodi .kodi_mykodi16
(if you are sure to never going back just do rm -rf .kodi)
ln -s $(getcfg hd_station install_path -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf)/root/.kodi

It's all now you use the default .kodi

I don't think is the best way for application "user based" to share a common for all .. the idea is in a near future (for my own QPKG) to be able to run under the "user" name with the user home ... so able to have different environment for each user (ex. in a family)

This makes much sense, Philippe. However for example on Kodi this can be achieved within the app in a more efficient way as the system does not need to scrape and create database for the same content.

Hi,

YES perhaps ... I am not so clear ... the major problem for me is to run as admin / root ... I am not an expert but know 10 method to break things or create backdoor ... because running as admin/root and not as user ...

BUT as usual all is free choice (advantage of open system) ... so each is the master in is home / office ... :lol: :lol:
