If you’re running into low disk space when using Kodi 17.0 on Ubuntu Xenial, you’re probably having your
/var/log/syslog filled up with some error logging about a python-cryptography error…
extern "Python": function Cryptography_rand_status() called,
but @ffi.def_extern() was not called in the current subinterpreter.
If you ever need to remove an app from the iOS Simulator (let’s say your CI environment needs a clean install of the app) just hit:
xcrun simctl uninstall booted com.example.app
com.example.app is the bundle id of the application you want to remove
So I had to get another HTPC since I spend my life moving between two houses, during the week and weekend.
On one of that houses I have a SamsungUE40D5700 SmartTV (2011 version, very slow one!) and my ASUS barebone S1AT5NM10E (working flawlessly since 2011) running Ubuntu Server. I have Plex Media Server installed, serving video to my SmartTV and to my iPhone. I have another TV on the same house, not Smart, so I had to buy a Chromecast and I use Plex iOS app to cast to that TV.
Since I use Plex Media Server, I never felt the urge to install any graphical OS on my barebone, neither KODI (previously known as XBMC) not even OpenELEC. But since on my other house I don’t have a SmartTV, I had to opt in on Kodibuntu. So…
I needed a new HTPC, so I started a web crusade search for my next candidate. ZOTAC, NUC, etc. Seen all of them at the time.
Intel NUC was my choice, and I definitively couldn’t choose better! I got the Celeron 2.13GHz version (N2830 CPU made on July 2014).
