for removing. I'll leave out the autoremove list this time...
sudo apt-get remove mythtv Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: [...] Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. The following packages will be REMOVED: mythtv 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 308 not upgraded. 2 not fully installed or removed. Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 65.5kB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y (Reading database ... dpkg: error processing mythtv (--remove): failed in buffer_read(fd): files list for package `kdelibs-data': Input/output error Errors were encountered while processing: mythtv Processing was halted because there were too many errors. E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Practically the same error (obvious it would be, really?)
Hope they help in solving my problem (and hopefully lots of other people's!) Farran

no, sorry. That won't work either. (You may have come across this before from me - I have posted it a couple of times.) Months ago, I attempted to install MythTV and all it's addons. When it got about half way through the installation process, it asked for configuration; for a MySQL database. I didn't really know what it was, thought it was some kind of online subscription or something. Recently discovered it was something actually on my computer - except it hadn't been in the dependencies list for MythTV when it was installing. So I _still_ have a half installed MythTV, and no MySQL. I can't install or remove anything. I tried installing MySQL through source (or whatever it is when it isn't a .deb - basically unarchiving a gzip and using the make commands etc), but my computer has NEVER liked that process. I would be hugely pleased if this could be fixed, although I am due to build a new pc soon.
The options for installing stuff are really the package manager or building it from source. Just to encourage my laziness in not going looking for previous threads: what is the output from aptitude when you ask it to install stuff (or remove mythTV)?
