Looks like we need to have a package called rapidxml in order to update this. Looks like that package is kind of DOA sadly...

I'm keeping this in mind for my next Kodi rebuild -- if we're lucky, it'll Just Work™ because it and its deps will be pulled in automagically by Kodi's own build scripts.

I don’t think we should update to 4.0 or later because they seem to be for the next Kodi update possibly named Matrix? I think it would be wiser to stick with the 3.x.x series that explicitly states that it’s for Leia. Will be updating my revision to 3.5.8!

Any news on this @Jacalz ?

I ask because I just rebuilt kodi-18.3 and kodi-platform locally and would like to test your kodi-pvr-iptvsimple-3.5.8 plugin before foisting it upon the world at large...

Sorry, I am having issues with my solbuild environment not behaving as it should and rapidxml is very annoying.
There's pretty much nothing important that has happened after the version that I have built in my package, either you pull that in or I will abandon the revision and leave it as is.

EDIT: It is not a threat, even if it sounds like that 😂

@Jacalz :

So, just so I'm sure we're on the same page:

I should just go ahead and test out D5986 (3.5.3) with my kodi-18.3 build for now?

And then you'll try to update the plugin to 3.5.8 at a later stage -- rapidxml and your solbuild setup permitting?

P.S. Any chance I could persuade you to join #Solus-Dev on Freenode IRC?

@Jacalz

Good news! Kodi-18.3 now correctly builds and includes the pvr-iptvsimple-3.5.8 plugin when I do a complete build of kodi. \o/

If all goes well, we can nuke the separate plugin from the repo. I'll ping you once kodi-18.3 lands in -unstable for you to test.

Wonderful! Really good news 👍
Should probably try to wrap my head around how IRC works and be more active there too, thanks for the tip @ermo 🙂

@Jacalz

Kodi-18.3 was landed in unstable last night (R1571:115a53714a61).

Could I persuade you to test the pvr-iptvsimple plugin included in the build and see if it works as you expect?

If it does work, I'll close the present request as we'll already be using the newest/most suitable version from upstream.

No need to persuade me, I will do a check on it 👍

Oh sorry, I did all the testing but forgot to say how it was 😬 It worked fine 👍

Latest supported version of pvr-iptvsimple is now built as part of our "batteries included" version of Kodi.

Marking as resolved.
