kodi crash by trying to open pictures

  • Hi everyone

    I have trouble opening pictures in kodi.

    Constellation: rpi3; recalbox 4.0 ; pictures are stored on a NAS and over smb.

    First I made shure that there is no issue with the NAS and played a movie from it in kodi... Worked

    If I try to add my pictures Folder to kodi over smb everything looks good.
    At the moment I go to the menu "Pictures" and open my smb folder I can see that kodi loads the filenames of the pictures as a list. About a second after that kodi crashes and few moments later I'm back at the recalbox menu. Mean it's not a full reboot just a crash of kodi.

    By searching the web I found that other people could fix it with changes at the "advancedsettings.xml" in that way.
    but that didn't worked for me.

    I also read that this could be caused by memory issues and found this https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/9b8b6961012d5b4aaa9866c7da3f255e2e3ae303 as a try of a solution, but
    find / -name "libexif.h"
    did not show me a filename.

    Also read here https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/issues/873
    that nadenislamarre get into the same error and it would be added to be fixed in 4.1

    Is there a "dirty" solution for this problem at the time or do I have to wait till 4.1?

    Thx for help 😉
