Uninstall broke Ubuntu
So i uninstalled though the setup script and no i DID NOT tell it to remove all dependencies ..
But it did anyway..
sudo dhclient worked to get me back on the system, Thanx BuZz
reinstalling retro-pie does not reinstall the dependencies either (just errors out)
does anyone have any info on what was removed.
Using Ubuntu 16.04
I can confirm there is an issue with the uninstall and am looking into it.
there is an issue removing kodi in that it removes dependencies for kodi which seems to be causing a problem. I think that's the only issue (which can remove network-manager). Did you have that package installed ?
You can check
/var/log/dpkg.logto see what's been added/removed.
oh btw -
Bit unfair / unreasonable imho - especially if you want help. I assume you are being sarcastic anyway...
Aha sorry. You were actually thanking me from my post on the other thread. Though you were blaming me for the breakage personally :-)
@BuZz Yes kodi was installed (outside of retropie)
@XXDILBERTXX Then I don't know what triggered the issue as the only problem I found was with kodi removing policykit-1 if installed via retropie-setup which could remove gnome-network-manager.
I will need a log of the uninstall from RetroPie-Setup/logs to be able to advise further.
@BuZz And yes i was very much thanking you.. and again Thanks (have a lot of other servers n time on that system)
and Sorry no logs i deleted all the retropie folders already..
It did mess with the policykit because i could not even mount a USB (forget the exact error but was policy related)
Currently doing a upgrade to 18 LTS... think that should get what im missing if not at least i know what direction to look..
@XXDILBERTXX I apologise for accusing you of sarcasm. I misunderstood the reference to the other thread. Thanks. I adjusted my post above when I realised I had made a mistake. My bad.
install gnome-network-manager and I think that will solve the networking issue you had.
After the dist-upgrade all packages we installed but still needed to run "sudo dhclient" to get networking..
I then removed policykit-1 and reinstalled network-manager
and that did the trick!
