    • Likely some incompatibility between packages. Try to manually remove the two installed packages without touching their dependencies, then reinstall from the PPA.

      • Well I purged the PPA and did a dist-update and this is what installed. So did the Mint guys update the graphics drivers? I see llvm5.0 which seems relatively new for Ubuntu 16.04. Could that be the cause of problems with this PPA?

        Code:
        The following NEW packages will be installed:
          libllvm5.0
        The following packages will be upgraded:
          dolphin-emu-data-master dolphin-emu-master kodi kodi-x11 libdrm-amdgpu1 libdrm-intel1 libdrm-nouveau2
          libdrm-radeon1 libdrm2 libegl1-mesa libegl1-mesa-drivers libgbm1 libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx
          libglapi-mesa:i386 libglapi-mesa libgles1-mesa libgles2-mesa libosmesa6 libosmesa6:i386 libwayland-cursor0

        • It may be... Try updating the packages and then add again the PPA, let's see what's happens.

          • Same result. Here's a pastebin of a fresh try with the PPA. Says it's trying to overwrite /usr/share/libdrm/amdgpu.ids , but I checked that location and there's nothing there. libdrm is empty.

            • OK, probably this error was due to an update of the system libdrm, that file went in a different package than mine. I temporarily removed it from libdrm-amdgpu1 package, building updated libdrm now. Please try updating again when the build is finished (some minutes).

              • Thanks, that's working.

                • Trying to get Vuklan working on my Mint 18 setup with Radeon HD 7850 and when I run Dolphin with Vulkan I get the message "No Vulkan Physical Devices available". I installed vulkan-utils and mesa-vulkan-drivers. Do I need to enable AMDGPU to get Vulkan?

                  **EDIT**

                  Nevermind, I got it working by switching over to the AMDGPU driver. Apparently Radeon has no Vulkan, only AMDGPU.

                  • oibaf Do you provide debug packages? I don't see really those and GDB show /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/nouveau_dri.so has no debug symbols...

                    • Yesterday I updated my Mint 18 and couldn't boot the machine into a UI. I had to ppa-purge the PPA to get it to boot back up. Am I the only person who uses Mint with this PPA, cause I feel like I'm the only one running into these problems.

                      **EDIT**

                      Tried again and same Xserver error. Ppa-purge to fix it.
