    I also have this problem. I tested both Padoka and Oibaf PPAs but my PC won't boot.

    My system:
    Ubuntu 18.04
    Ryzen 1600X
    16GB RAM
    Radeon RX580
    For me I could just switch VTs over to the console VT, log in there, and PPA-Purge there.
    I wish Ubuntu would add a menu based repository to the rescue menu as well as a way to access the rescue menu from the command prompt. It would make life easy.

      I figured that was the case. Hopefully it can get sorted out.

        I can confirm that after manually installing libwayland-egl1 (libwayland-egl1-mesa was forced to be removed) and update other packages all works fine. Thanks all involved for help.

        • Next month Ubuntu 17.10/artful will be End Of Life, so I'll drop support for it. If you are still using it consider upgrading ASAP: make sure to purge the PPA, upgrade to 18.04/bionic and add again the PPA.

          Also I'll stop supporting 16.04/xenial once upgrade to 18.04/bionic are enabled, August or so.

          • I installed this PPA on Linux Mint 19 and I can't boot into Cinnamon. Had to ppa-purge to get back functionality. Is this PPA broken for weeks now?

              Is that a good thing? I did this and it also removed PCSX2, but when I reinstalled PCSX2 it would reinstall those files but remove libwayland-egl1. So essentially I can't use these drivers with PCSX2?

              BTW the files removed are " libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libwayland-egl1-mesa libwayland-egl1-mesa:i386 pcsx2:i386".

                Due to packaging changes you may need to install libwayland-egl1-mesa and libwayland-egl1-mesa:i386 manually.

                • I tried to install libwayland-egl1-mesa:i386 and libwayland-egl1-mesa and this is what it tries to do. I didn't continue cause I don't know what'll happen if it removes libwayland-egl1.
