Kodi has worked just fine on my system, as recently as July 6th of this year, but yesterday (July 16) I tried Kodi again: I got a blank screen and a pause for a few moments, followed by an unceremonious crash-to-desktop. This happens every time I start Kodi, now. If I run it through the command-line, I get this: libva info: VA-API version 1.1.0 libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0 libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/nouveau_drv_video.so libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_1 libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0 kodi-x11: ../src/gallium/drivers/nouveau/nouveau_vp3_video.c:91: nouveau_vp3_video_buffer_create: Assertion `templat->interlaced' failed. Aborted (core dumped) I’ve been using the same version of Kodi (“18.3 Git:20190621-89472b7”, package version 2:18.3+git20190621.1610-final-0bionic, from the Team- XBMC PPA) since its release in June, but in between July 6th and 16th, I did upgrade the Mesa packages, from 18.2.8-0ubuntu0~18.04.2 19.0.2-1ubuntu1.1~18.04.1. If I downgrade the “mesa-va-drivers” package to 18.0.0~rc5-1ubuntu1 (the version in the base, non-updates Bionic repository), however, Kodi works again, without even requiring me to restart my machine. So, this is likely a problem with “mesa-va- drivers”. I tried looking in Xorg.0.log: [ 17185.557] (II) NOUVEAU(0): EDID vendor "SEC", prod id 12620 [ 17185.557] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines: [ 17185.558] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Modeline "1366x768"x0.0 72.33 1366 1414 1446 1526 768 770 775 790 -hsync -vsync (47.4 kHz eP) …that’s all that appears in the log when I try to load Kodi and a crash happens. I’m using Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS 64-bit on a Compaq Presario CQ60; if you need more information, I’ve attached a hardinfo report, too. I hope this bug can get fixed, soon. Thanks!
