Building

This works best in an Ubuntu container.

LibreELECT Notes

Installed but no sata hdd. Found this

RPi4 has zero support for PCIe devices so why is it “embarrasing” for LE to omit support for PCIe SATA things in our RPi4 image?

Feel free to send a pull-request to GitHub enabling the kernel config that’s needed.

https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/27849-sata-controller-error/

Went though thier resouces beginners guid to git https://wiki.libreelec.tv/development/git-tutorial#forking-and-cloning building basics https://wiki.libreelec.tv/development/build-basics specific build commands https://wiki.libreelec.tv/development/build-commands/build-commands-le-12.0.x

and then failed because jammy wasn’t compatibile enough

Created a jammy container and restarted

https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/lxc-containers

sudo lxc-create –template download –name u1 ubuntu jammy amd64 sudo lxc-start –name u1 –daemon sudo lxc-attach u1

Used some of the notes from

https://www.artembutusov.com/libreelec-raid-support/

Did as fork, clone and a

git fetch –all

but couldnt get all the downloads as alsa.org site was down

On a side note, these are needed in the config.txt so that USB works

otg_mode=1,dtoverlay=dwc2,dr_mode=host

https://www.jeffgeerling.com/blog/2020/usb-20-ports-not-working-on-compute-module-4-check-your-overlays

I tried a menuconfig and selected ..sata? and got

CONFIG_ATA=m < CONFIG_ATA_VERBOSE_ERROR=y < CONFIG_ATA_FORCE=y CONFIG_ATA_SFF=y CONFIG_ATA_BMDMA=y

Better compare the .config file again

Edited and commited a config.txt but it didn’t show up in the image. Possibly the wrong file or theres another way to realize that chagne

Enabled the SPI interface

sudo apt install lxc

# This didn't work for some reason
sudo lxc-create --template download --name u1 --dist ubuntu --release jammy --arch amd64

sudo lxc-create --template download --name u1
