Hi, I installed LinuxMCE 8.10 three times yesterday. First time I messed things up by manually trying to install .deb packages by not using install script on desktop.
All three times Kubuntu installed without problems. Second time after install I updated the system and installed NVidia 180 driver via proprietary driver tool and then started the LinuxMCE install.
Third time right after Kubuntu install I started LinuxMCE install without previously installing NVidia driver or doing the update of the system.
Both times I got into same issue. After the install of all packages system needed to be restarted, I did that. After restart I got a screen showing white flashing text with statuses of things that system was doing - what packages are being installed, etc...
But after some time I just got blank screen and saw no system activity, hdd wasn't working and cpu wasn't loaded... I could only start a VT via CTRL-ALT-F1 and work from there, VT7 was just "frozen".
After ispecting I saw that apt-get got stuck... I would get messages:
package nvidia-180-libvdpau failed to install/upgrade: trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libvdpau.so.1', which is also in package nvidia-glx-180
I managed to fix the issue via: sudo apt-get remove nvidia-glx-180
After that installing package nvidia-180-libvdpau still fails:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-180-libvdpau

Any ideas? Is this a know LinuxMCE 8.10 bug?
UPDATE: found this bug:https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-180/+bug/460717
UPDATE 2: Now everytime I restart the LinuxMCE Core I get the same issue. There is somwhere a script that tries to install nvidia-180-libvdpau package but that kills apt-get and makes is impossible to install any other package after that. So I need to manually remove nvidia-glx-180 package every time I do a reboot
How can I fix this?
