    Hi, ive not bin here for a wile , just enjoying kodi and Geexbox.
    some times i still use the geexbox-updater to upgrade and it works fine and well its lazy button press and wait, but i think there is again a major update because its already more then a hour in update mode.

    Am i correct about the major update? (i think i let it be for a night to run its corse.)

    The banner is still running below and i can still navigate but not exit updater. (That’s normal when update is progressing.)
    So it looks like it isn’t crashed.



    Hi Peter,

    Well , it depends when you do the last one …
    if you can still remotely connect (ssh, telnet …)
    executing ps ax , you can see working jobs and maybe opkg (if no crash)

    Else, you can try to restart kodi, or manually do the update

    Cheers !

    Unfortunately, I have seen a case where updating from a really old version (eglibc) to a recent one on a RaspberryPi failed ending up in a Kodi crash / restart loop. Note that this type of update is *very* big as it affects pretty much every package you can think of. It was not clear, if the failure was triggered by the impatience of the user (i.e. rebooting while not yet complete) or if the update procedure screwed things up.
