Kodi standalone kiosk snap with RPi MMAL hardware acceleration
A standalone kodi-gbm snap (not usable with X11, Wayland or Mir !) with the MMAL
hardware acceleration patches for the Raspberry Pi.
Note: this snap needs a recent pi kernel ( >= 5.4 ) that provides /dev/vcsm-cma.
Please check if the device exists on your install before attempting to use this snap (Ubuntu Core20 as well as the Ubuntu 20.10 server and desktop images for the raspberry Pi will work (UC16 or 18 will not!))
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.5 for openSUSE_Leap_15.4 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
