Some easy steps to install kodi on raspbian
Update the Pi:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get rpi-update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install kodi
For the remote control we need to add group to kodi
sudo adduser kodi input
Now we can start Kodi by running:
If you want to start it when the Pi boots edit the file /etc/defaults/kodi
and change the 2nd line to ENABLED=1
I like low-power devices that you can leave somewhere for some interesting research.
Therefore I need remote access to it and turnout it was an easy task on the Raspberry Pi.
Lets first do a general update/upgrade to make sure the pi is on the latest software..
apt-get dist-upgrade -y
Now lets install the VNC server.
apt-get install x11vnc -y
Before we can start the VNC server we first need to make sure our x11 server is just running fine (if you don’t start it first VNC will throw you an error.)
(Note: If it is the first time you start your X11 environment you probably want the pi connected to an external output (hdmi) to see if the initial configuration went well on it. after that it can be disconencted from the video source and remoted into.)
Now that we have our X11 server running fine we can start our VNC server to remote into you x11 enviroment:
I would recommend to tunnel your traffic over a ssh tunnel if your Pi is on a remote location.
(Note: When you disconnect from the VNC server the server will shut down. So if you wanne connect again you need to run x11vnc & again …)
This article discribes how you can remotely connect to your backtrack box using VNC server.
Lets start with making sure your HackBox is up to date by running the command:
Now we can install the server:
