PSA: How to install Kodi on 21.04 Raspberry Pi

On release of 21.04, there is no ARM64 build of kodi - which means you cannot install Kodi on a raspberry pi.

What I have done is taken the sources available in the repository and rebuilt it specifically for ARM64.

In a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntubudgie-dev/kodi
sudo apt install kodi

Hopefully this will be resolved properly for 21.10 - until then - enjoy!

So, it installed for me, I can verify that in my package list. However, I can’t run it, …can’t find it. System doesn’t know where it is. What is the command line for it, ie. where is it located. Not in /usr/bin or in my home dir.
