Kodi locking up on opening

Hi, having issues with kodi locking up. Have an APU 4750g and was working then stopped. Cannot find much in the logs. Known issue? I used store and snap images, both had the same reaction.

Hi @Filipe, and welcome!

Please see [HowTo] Provide System Information, this [HowTo] post screenshots and links and finally, [HowTo] Increase your chances of solving your issue.

How did you install Kodi? Because, it’s in the community repository:

$ pamac search kodi
kodi                                                                                                                                                                                                                 19.3-2                       community
A software media player and entertainment hub for digital media

So can,theoretically, be installed using:

pamac install kodi

Hope you come right!

hi, thanks for the reply! Packages (1) kodi-19.3-2
using pacman same issue.
~]$ uname -r

~]$ amdgpu_device_initialize: amdgpu_query_info(ACCEL_WORKING) failed (-13)
amdgpu: amdgpu_device_initialize failed.
Can’t load /etc/samba/smb.conf - run testparm to debug it
might help

The Arch Wiki on Samba:

Samba is configured in the /etc/samba/smb.conf configuration file, which is extensively documented in smb.conf(5).

Because the samba package does not provide this file, one needs to create it before starting smb.service.

A documented example as in smb.conf.default from the Samba git repository may be used to setup /etc/samba/smb.conf.

done, many thanks, but still crashes

@Filipe when you say it crashes, what exactly happens, is it just frozen when you start and does essentially nothing?

When you start kodi from the commandline, is there an error message that you see? Did you experience the same issues before running the latest updates to python?
I don’t want to be misleading, but with the upgrade to python 3.10 a lot of the scripts running in Kodi have been experiencing some issues. In my case i was getting the frozen screen upon starting Kodi, but please post what you are seeing.


ok will upgrade and see … the CLI output is above GPU failure on init

media ~]$ python --version
Python 3.10.1

@filipe for me the problems started with the upgrade. I have reinstalled Kodi and run it in its unmodified form. That includes the baseskin.


Hi, thanks again for helping, but unfortunately that did not work. It opens and then just locks, doesn’t allow any mouse movement, only alt tab. But the app is completely untouchable.

this is pure install, no addons etc … last version in the pkg mgr
Packages (1) kodi-19.3-2
Can you install earlier versions on Manjaro
