I have't installed any unstable version or RC, I am still on 17.6 Krypton.
So I have understood, that
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

will do it after the final version is available.

thx
Yes.

Stable Kodi Leia has not yet been released for the Raspberry Pi SBC.

AFAIAA both OSMC & LibreElec are not as yet offering Leia.....

Kodi doesn't offer an installation program for the Raspberry Pi like they do for Windows, MacOS and Android, because the Raspberry Pi runs Linux, and there are many Linux flavors available for it. So, each Linux flavor/distribution maintainers, have to compile Kodi for it, if they want, and when they have time. For Raspbian, it is not available yet but it won't take long. You have to wait a litlle bit.

You can try if you want.
But you will need deep understanding of kodi and linux to do it, its not an easy task.

It should reach the Raspberry Pi Foundation tomorrow or so, no need to do that, just wait a little bit, it is the same thing.

Today I did a fresh reinstall of RetroPie after I goofed something up, and to my surprise when I added on Kodi and loaded it up, v18.0 - Leia. Seems to work just fine for a relative noob like myself.

To clarify things up (again), this Kodi compiles/packages are from the PiPplware system, which is a Linux system based on Raspbian, which I am the main developer. Either this test builds on this thread, the stable builds on Raspberry Pi Foundation, the packages on RetroPie, and probably more Raspbian based systems, all come from there (the same repo) and are all the same.
RetroPie uses our (Pipplware) repo, that is why it is already available there. They will be available tomorrow or so on the Raspberry Pi Foundation repo, when they have time to upload it.
The problem is, the Pipplware server is a small one located in Portugal, with not so high bandwith. So if all the ppl start to download from there, it will become really slow. Please wait a little bit, it shouldn't take long!

Sorry then...when i took a look into the PiPplware repo, i realized that the packages of Kodi 18 final are ready and so i've installed them with success. The last RC from your repo did crash many times with my setup, but the final now doesn't crash anymore.

Sorry again and thanks for your good work.

Kodi 18 stable/final is now available on the Rasperry Pi Foundation repo.

To update just run, as usual:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Before upating I recommend that you make a backup of your Kodi settings, (the dir /home/pi/.kodi). Depending on what addons you have installed, it can be problems on updating.
If you were using the unstable repo I also recommend to remove it:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pipplware_unstable.list

:D Thank you so much. Just got to the end of this. My Raspberry Pi desktop just keeps getting better and better. It really is an awesome beast.

Also many thanks for all those who post here regularly and keep the information flowing, you are doing an amazing job and your efforts are greatly appreciated.

I upgraded to Leia and 95% of my library is unplayable. The rar archives all show as empty. Do I have to downgrade?

In Kodi 18, some features were split from the Kodi main binary and are now binary addons. To read compressed files you need to install kodi-vfs-libarchive. There are more kodi-vfs-* addons in the repo, check them and install what you need.

Hi! This is maybe a stupid question, but i'm missing some plugins for the new games section (emulators for example).

I'm using Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Kodi is 2:18.0-1~stretch from http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/

This works fine in Android or on Libreelec. Are they unsing different addon repos?

Thanks for your help!

Yes emulators are still missing on Raspbian. Android has the emulators (and other binary addons) provided directly by the Oficial Repo, unlike Linux distributions, which are provided by the distro maintainers. LibreELEC has is own repo for the emulators. Maybe you can try LibreELEC repo and see if it works, idk.
