Let me check the repo provided package on my machine... I built it from source and am running that just fine.

OK: I can confirm that the repo provided package also coredumps for me.

EDIT: I PM'ed you a URL to the package I built with devtools-alarm, does it work for you?
EDIT2: I received your PM that my package works for you. I opened this PR asking to have it rebuilt upstream: https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUILDs/pull/1625

Hi graysky,

just updated to the latest kodi-rbp-git and kodi-dev-rbp-git via the repo and now everything works fine.

Out of curiosity: How can the same code be compiled once and produce core dumps when run but work fine when compiled a second time?

Again, thanks for your quick support :)
