    I encountered this same error with Ubuntu 17.10 on a fresh install. My AskUbuntu post summarizes my experience, but in short, there is a conflict with the version of libdrm-amd-gpu provided by the PPA and the one provided by libdrm-common which breaks the drivers and several core packages to xorg and wayland. Ubuntu will not allow the PPA to override this library. I did solve the problem with the following steps:
    1. Code:
      sudo dpkg --purge libdrm-common
    2. Code:
      sudo apt update
    3. Code:
      sudo apt upgrade
    I did disable the PPA before the dpkg, then reenabled before the update, but this shouldn't actually make a difference, I was digging through a lot of things to try and solve this. But now apt no longer tries to uninstall GNOME.

      • The issue on 17.10 should be fixed now.

        • To artful/17.10 users: I just uploaded updated, rebased mesa packages, I disabled some stuff which probably isn't very useful nowadays: XvMC and OpenMAX video drivers, optional classic swrast and broken gallium i915.
          Please test and let me know.

          • I encountered no issues enabling and after a few days purging your ppa on 17.10 went quite smooth both ways. Nice work

            • Hello, I just updated the drivers, and a wild flicker appeared. Apparently the previous versions are no longer in the PPA so I can't revert?

              I think these are the relevant packages, so one of them probably has the issue. After these updates my game started showing huge graphical glitches. The main menu flickers (but it stops flickering briefly if I adjust graphical settings). The game itself is an unplayable mess. There's something about shaders.

              Anyway, grepped apt's history log with "oibaf":

              • Ubuntu 17.10 running on an Intel 8700K with iGPU(i915) and updated yesterday and it completely broke Wayland. Major pixelation and flicker (stops momentarily if I move my mouse). I'm able to switch to Xorg and login fine though, so it's Wayland specific. Following packages were updated:

                libgl1-mesa libgbm1 libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx libglapi-mesa
                libgles2-mesa libwayland-egl1-mesa libxtracker2 mesa-va-drivers
                mesa-vdpau-drivers

                Any ideas?

                  • Hello,
                    I have a problem with playing video. I updated some days ago (18 Nov) and after that my Kodi start crashes when I try to use vdpau (Xorg crash). I think that problem with mesa packet.
