    Linux Generic Metapackage borked?

    Cruft remover has a long way to go with testing. It turfed my test box and Im in the process of getting it back together.

    X wont start because the NVIDIA module has problems, and I cant reinstall the nvidia module because I cant install the linux generic metapackage, which I need for the headers in the driver compile.

    Anyone else got this? Hopefully it wont last long and the devs will fix it soon so I can get back to testing

    See the kernel thread where autocrosser got the same.

    tty is also probably broken for you..

    No problem to install nVidia 180.08 within recovery.


    Alberto is looking at this issue but it can take time, 180.08 is also a beta driver.

    Its still broken, unmet dependencies exist when trying to install the linux metapackage for the .27 current kernel. It probably wont be fixed until Monday I gather now that the weekend has set in

    OK...

    But what is broken....

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    
    sudo apt-get install linux

    Or use aptitude for even better suggestions.....break risk.

    The cruft thing is something special...I tested Grub 2 and it was also something.

    I cannot see this breakage myself and one way is to follow it "deeper".

    linux-restricted-modules-generic > output and so on.

    Also to look at aptitude solutions.

    I installed the .28 generic last nite with out it bitchin about dependency hell and re-installed 'ubuntu-desktop' as well. Rebooted and all is good including sound. *fingers crossed*

    '.28 linux-restricted-modules-generic' is not seen yet
