This small installation also holds a PiHole instance in a docker container.
But of cause, over the years, more containers and services followed and the original 16GB card was getting too small.
So I bought a new one, made a copy from the old and restored it onto the new one.
And then the trouble with resizing the image began...
LibreELEC is not a full-fledged Linux distro, but really just enough to run Kodi.
To cut a long story short, I found a way to resize the image:
The resizing trigger only works on a "fresh" installation. Instead of really doing a fresh install and restore, it's possible to just rename some directories and pretend to be a fresh install.
Connect to the installation via ssh and run this commands:
# stop the running kodi instance systemctl stop kodi # shutdown all docker containers docker stop $(docker container ls -q) # rename old stuff mv /storage/.kodi /storage/.kodi_old mv /storage/.config /storage/.config_old mv /storage/.cache /storage/.cache_old # trigger resizing on next boot touch /storage/.please_resize_me # reboot sync reboot
After reboot, the "fresh installation wizard" appears. You need to configure Wifi (luckily I use ethernet) and turn ssh access back on.
Connect once again via ssh and run this commands:
# stop the running kodi instance systemctl stop kodi # remove the "fresh" setup rm -rf /storage/.kodi rm -rf /storage/.config rm -rf /storage/.cache # rename old stuff back mv /storage/.kodi_old /storage/.kodi mv /storage/.config_old /storage/.config mv /storage/.cache_old /storage/.cache # reboot sync reboot
Fingers crossed that it works. The docker containers probably won't start automatically since they were stopped manually - so you have to restart them manually again.
