[...] added a repository (they are established)

It's looking like socket errors IMO.

Only add-ons I'm running are 'Crackler' (legal) & 'SALTS' (not so legal), and they work fine for me on Kodi ver 16, 17 & 18 beta.

Have you tested those ?

If I were you I'd remove KODI 17 .. reinstall 16 .. delete the  ~/.kodi directory .. and start again from the fresh install.

The .kodi directory from 17 was probably giving 16 problems.

but your call...

I've been trying to follow this thread, with much difficulty. What would be the current recommendation for a version of Kodi for a fresh install on Peppermint 7 respin? (A regular version, as the Beast thing wouldn't accept an email addy from me).

That's a tough one to answer murraymint .. If you take "The Beast" out of the equation I've personally had no problems with KODI 17, but other people have.

The Beast (for me) has not been very stable on 17 .. so I no longer use it and install the plugins manually .. I'd expect the  beast to become more stable as time goes by.

16.1 on the other hand is pretty stable for nearly everyone .. AND The Beast should be fine.

Because of the beast issues, at first I wished I'd never changed to 17 but now I've manually added just the plugins I use to 17, I've grown to like the new interface so I'll  be sticking with it.

For a lot of people (probably hardware dependent) 17 is unstable .. so if unsure I'd probably advise 16.1 .. but you have to bear in mind that at some point in the future some newer plugin versions may not work in anything less than the current version (17).

So any recommendation is kinda six of one and half dozen of the other kinda thang .. the only real answer is "which ever works for you".

Thanks for that, I'll probably give 16.1 a try on my Baytrail TV box. (I cloned a Peppermint 7 install onto it and used Linuxium's Lubuntu ISO to install itself alongside and make the bootloader work)

The hardware on that thing is temperamental at the best of times so I doubt the new version would work smoothly on it.

Problem solved. Install the package or python-deb.zip
sudo dpkg -i python-cryptography_1.7.1-2_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i python-openssl_16.2.0-1_all.deb
there can be problems with dependence
rights through
sudo apt-get install -f

all run

Not sure I'd go downloading packages that have anything to do with SSL and cryptography from a random forum .. if those particular versions are necessary I'd be more likely to go directly to the Ubuntu zesty repos

http://packages.ubuntu.com/zesty/python-openssl
and
http://packages.ubuntu.com/zesty/python-cryptography

Download the versions for your architecture .. bung em both into a directory somewhere .. "cd" into that directory .. then run "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" to install them.
(if installed together this way, you sidestep  the dependency issue)

I find it odd that the KODI team would release 17 requiring libs from an Ubuntu version that isn't even released yet :-\

Thanks for posting your solution though :)

Like I said, thanks for the solution .. I'm just surprised the KODI team have released something into the xenial PPA channel  that requires xenial to have zesty libraries. Someone screwed up somewhere :)

You can install Exodus from the Kodil repository on Kodi Krypton and Kodi Jarvis, and get add-ons updates at times. Follow the steps below How to Install Kodi Exodus Repository 2018
