I have one or two redundant Kodi Boxes, 

could they be repurposed for 3d printer control?

when you find a way to install linux on it, it should work to get octopi working on it.

It should work:

Once you have linux on it, then just install octoprint. Some plugins might not work, need to be compiled but in general I don't see a reason why not.
