I'm wondering once I'm in Kodi and it freezes what do I do? Is it possible to force quit the program? or is there a way to do a reboot of the system? It's happened a few times now where the system freezes and I seem to always have to pull the power to reboot. I'm wondering if there are better steps to do before It comes to that. Does that make sense?
Try CtrlAltF1-6. At least one of this should take you to a plain text login. From there you should be able to get the PID of the Kodi process -- presuming it's called
kodi, which I don't know:
ps -C kodi
This will respond with a number, or nothing it it is not actually called
kodi, in which case you could try
ps -A | grep kodi to see if it is something more elaborate (e.g
kodi-foo). Once you have the PID number:
sudo kill ...
... is the number. If that doesn't work, try
kill -9 ....
If/once you are sure of the name of the process you can also just use:
sudo killall kodi
To save looking up the PID. You can use
