The problems began after the kodi 17 to 16 to the end of January everything worked perfectly.
kodi loads is one of the cores to 100% then swop overflowing with half-empty RAM. I tried to install Kodi 17 by LIvecd this mode is similar to the clean boot mode without installing the add-ons.
result:
Installed zip repository, installed Torrenter v2, with the installation of the torrent search engines comes Cody crash immediately after clicking on the software options I hope someone can help

If you have allowed the upgrade from KODI 16 (Jarvis) to KODI 17 (Krypton) there are 2 possible fixes...
(in either case you're going to loose any configuration and addons you've already added and be starting with a fresh KODI)

a) (with KODI closed) Rename the ~/.kodi directory .. then start KODI 17 and start adding your addons back.

b) Uninstall KODI 17 .. rename the ~/.kodi directory .. then install KODI 16 again, and start adding your addons back .. then REMOVE the KODI PPA so it doesn't auto upgrade to 17 again.

in (b) you still have to rename the kodi config directory because when you upgraded to 17 it will have modified all the addons and broken them for 16 :(

I can tell you where to get the KODI 16 .deb files (and dependencies) if you need them.

Or if you want FULL instructions to downgrade KODI back to 16.1 .. just ask.

How can I solve my problem. Thank you

I had the same problem.   ;)

Kodi 16 worked fine, until I upgraded to Kodi 17.  Then, Kodi started crashing.  Sound was okay, but video was fubar.

So, I thought the prob was Kodi 17 and upgraded to Kodi 18.  Kodi 18 crashed, too.

I was about to downgrade Kodi 18 to Kodi 16, but first I did the following ...


a) (with KODI closed) Rename the ~/.kodi directory .. then start KODI [18] and start adding your addons back.

Now, Kodi 18 is working fine !

I suggest you do the same ...   8)

Okay, remove KODI 17
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge kodi kodi-binnow download this archive:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/Kodi-16.1-Jarvis.tar.gz
and unpack it.

This archive contains all debs necessary for both 32bit and 64bit installs of KODI 16.1 (Jarvis), and instructions on how to install them (ie. which order to install them).

Once you have it working, you'll want to disable/remove the KODI PPA so it doesn't get updated again ;)

Gimme a shout if you can't work it out from the included instructions.

I was also having a terrible time with Kodi 17.0.  I tried going back to Kodi 16.01.  It worked for a short time and then it wouldn't connect.  Uninstall Kodi 16.1 Jarvis and kodi-bin:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove --purge kodi && sudo apt remove kodi-binI've reinstalled Kodi 17.0 using their official PPA:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppaEnter your user password if asked and hit select Yes when prompted.  Continue with:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update && sudo apt install kodiThe unofficial repos I installed are: http://fusion.tvaddons.ag and http://srp.nu.  For Fusion I used the instructions provided in this website: https://howtomediacenter.com/en/fusion-addon-installer-kodi-krypton-estuary/.  For the SuperRepo, use the instructions provided here: https://kodifiretvstick.com/install-superrepo-kodi/  Select Krypton as the version you want installed.  You should be able to install Hungarian language repos that are Kodi 17.0 "Krypton" ready.  This method has worked for me.  Kodi 17.0 is running really well now.  I hope this helps and good luck  ;).

Note:  If you have these unofficial repos installed.  Don't ask for help at the Kodi Forum.  Their moderators are not diplomatic with their responses to unofficial repos help requests.  If fact, they're downright nasty and aggressively rude.
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

Thanks AndyInMokum,
1. Delete the Kodi 16 and the folder .kodi
2. On your instruction install Kodi 17, added a repository (they are established)
3. Run the video and the new addition, the collapse of the system, but with other logs.
