Pretty simple. I've been using RPI with openelec as an smb server for my kodi devices. Its simple and very reliable.
Now I'd like to switch from openelec since I don't really use it for kodi. My needs are simple. I want it to continue to get the job done with smb but would also like it to run mysql for my kodi machines. My macbook all of a sudden stopped running mysql with the most recent update. I've been scrambling for a fix but the pi would be a better solution--hidden away, low powered, hardwired.
What's the best distro for this?
