[Testing] Kodi 18.0 Leia beta versions now available for RetroPie!
@DeathWalk well, that is strange. Can you post a screenshot or a photo of the problem? A debug log will also help. About a new version, we will release another one when we see fit. I don't think your problem is bug but some kind of problem in your configuration, only more info and a log will tell.

Hello and thank you for the quick response,
Here there are the log file:
Sometimes I can see the big button anothers just the dark overlay that appear when the screen controls are activated. I have a capture with the dark tone of the onscreen control and one photo that I took yesterday with the cam before use a screenshot software.![alt text]( image url) ![alt text]( image url)
I hoppe you can help me I'm close to have my retropie perfect :)
@DeathWalk We need a debug log with the problem reproduced. Does it happen on local files also or only on Netflix/Amazon content ?

Sorry Rasta for not answer earlyer, This days i'm very bussy and i have not to much time, maybe next week i have more time and i can upload the logs, Anyway Thank you for you disposition to help, really. ^^
It tells me that I should rather get beta 5. How do I do that?
I just bought the DVB-T card for the RPi and my Retropie is currently running tvheadend to offer it out to the network. I haven't yet got around to setting up Kodi to view it "live" on the Pi itself yet but good to know that things are improving all the time.
This post is deleted!
I get crashes in Kodi 18 whenever I change the regional settings (even if I just go in, change the country, come out). It crashes out of Kodi and the changes are never saved.
Any idea why that might be (am I missing some internationalisation package for Kodi?).
@ledow I don't have this problem with kodi 18 beta 4. Running Raspberry Pi 3b plus..
@ledow I cannot reproduce that problem too. Check your kodi log for errors, if you updated from version 17, it can be caused by some incompatible addon. You can try with a clean/default settings, by moving/removing /home/pi/.kodi
@Rascas It's a clean install, no previous install ever (never used Kodi on this device/card at all).
When I change regional settings, it lets me select UK or change the date/time setup to UK but then almost immediately Kodi dies and throws me back to the menu.
I can change every other option, I can watch TV for hours, do all the normal things, but changing the region just crashes it hard, whether I do it immediately I go into Kodi or if I've been in and out of a thousand menus.
It did it with zero addons installed, and it does it with the tvHeadEnd HTSP add-on installed.
I'll try to recover some logs or similar next time I do it, just wondered if it was only me.
Well then post your kodi log with debug enabled, and I would also check /var/log/syslog for errors like microSD card/disk errors.

i don't know what to do.
i don't get the netflix addon to run.
when i try to run it kodi gives me an error message that says to look into the log file.
looking in the log it seems the problem is that there is no directory for the netflix addon.
i think the problem is that on installation time the dependency for pycryptodome is not resolved.
i tried to install the python package pycryptodomex via pip but of course the addon still can not see an equivalent pycryptodome kodi addon/package.
i run everything on an raspberry pi 3b
What am i doing wrong?
how did you get the netflix addon to run on retropie?
do i need an additional repo?
@wursti90 If anybody has trouble getting Netflix working, you have to do 'pip install pycryptodomex' in a terminal, not as root or with sudo or it won't work. Then just install the netflix addon from here

If anybody has some problem with this Kodi test builds, please post your kodi debug log as explained here
It will make everything easier and faster for everybody.

Found the cause of my problem, and it was a bit of a misdirection, I apologise - apparently a default weather add-on had been enabled.
Ironically, the UK Met Office weather app crashes if you change the region to UK while it's running........
@Rascas It is running now but it won't actually play any video and I don't get any error..
@Cederick Make sure you are using the default video settings, which is MMAL enabled, OMXPlayer disabled. If it still does not work after that, post your Kodi debug log.
@wursti90 Netflix add-on won't play currently due to changes made by Netflix. See issues on https://github.com/asciidisco/plugin.video.netflix/issues

btw. installing pycryptodomex via 'pip install pycryptodomex' didn't do the trick.
so on my rapsberry pi 3b running retropie 4.4 logged in via ssh i had to explicitly set the user flag. That means after executing 'pip install --user pycryptodomex' i was able to login but now i am waiting for a fix :)
