Kodi from Debian
----------------

This package is different from the package you can build from the Kodi source
you can download from https://kodi.tv (vanilla Kodi, from now on).
This package uses external libraries such as libav distributed in Debian, while
the XBMC project suggests using the libraries embedded in vanilla Kodi's source.
This difference may cause problems not experienced with vanilla Kodi thus you
are kindly asked not to report bugs directly to https://kodi.tv, but to
Debian's BTS [1].
You can get an overview of the package at Debian PTS [2] or the list of open
bugs at [3].

Kodi for different Kernels and Architectures
--------------------------------------------

Kodi is known to build on i386, amd64, powerpc, arm and armhf in Debian [4].
If you are able to build and run Kodi on other architectures and/or kernels,
please provide patches to configure.in and any other files you may have modified
to the Debian BTS.
