Kodi unable to start GUI

RPi 3B+, freshly installed Raspbian Buster minimal/lite.

When I try to start kodi from console, I get error: "unable to start gui, exiting"

Googling, I found it's probably the missing xserver. So, what is the minimal package needed for this?

Also, shouldn't it be a dependency for kodi package?

Re: I can´t boot from usb in pi 4

Just got hit by that. Brouight brand new Pi 4 and USB 3.0 flash drive home, prepared, USB, but not booting. Guess I'll wait for the new firmware then.

Does that also means, I'll still need some SD to do the boot firmware update?

Re: USB Problem after upgrade to RPi3B+

Well, it seems to be caused by forgotten overclocking/overvolting options in /boot/config.txt. After removing them, the reboots works fine again.

I've had model 2, but upgraded ti 3B+ couple of weeks ago. I've just moved the SD card from one board to another, and everything seemed fine. But since then, sometimes after reboot (after kernel update using rpi-upgrade) USB devices (keyboard, ethernet) are not working. The Pi seems booted fine on t...

Re: Not booting after cloning SD card

Solution for next generations:

Get PARTUUID with `sudo blkid /dev/sdb2` and fix it in /boot/cmdline.txt and /etc/fstab.

Re: Not booting after cloning SD card

I've forgot to mention, the new SD card previously also had raspbian on itselfs, so it's properly partitioned and formatted.

I just wanted to copy my pimped, tweaked and configured Raspbian Stretch Lite to another Raspberry Pi.

Yeah. I'll probably do something similar. I'll install fresh stretch, install packages, copy webs and configs and I'll see. Then, after a week or so, I'll convert the FS from ext4 to F2FS again. I've been running badblocks on the SD card for a day now (5 checks) without any error. So it's probably s...

Re: Cron reboot does not work

I found a cause of this!

Redis server, installed with this script.

Removing those created initscripts, and RPi reboots without any problem.

My problem is solved! RPi is not capable of powering wifi dongle, keyboard and mouse. So now I use just keyboard and the dongle, and it works just fine. So I'll have to buy powered hub. FYI I am using 700 mA phone charger as PSU.
