Remove all but Kodi, possible?
#1
Since I'm using RetroOrange (4.2) just as mediacenter, I would like to know if it's safe to remove all base modules installed and leave just Armbian + Kodi.  That because when trying to remove some items, a warning popup informing the modules are critical, even if not apparently connected with Kodi. 
Is there a way to have my OPI distro as I wish? 

Thanks,

F.

Kodi runs on X11, which has a lot of dependencies. If the system says modules are critical, better not delete them.
you can get rid of /opt/retropie/emulators, /opt/retropie/libretrocores, /home/pi/RetroPie/{music,splashscreens,roms}

post what packages you are trying to remove so we can check if it's really needed

Alexkidd,

I've already removed all main, opt and experimental packages from retropie_setup.sh.
The following are the modules giving me a warning:

138 Retroarch
809 Emulationstation
825 Retropiemenu
826 runcommand

But never mind, for now I've recovered 1.2GB of space and a bunch of MB of free ram, but I gained a lot of instability (OPI getting really hot and shutdown). 
Better leave all in place...
I was asking it I was unable to find an Armbian for my OPI at the same level of stability of Retrorangepi, and seems Kodi is hard to configure too. 
Thanks anyway!
