Hi All
Setting up Kodi on Mint to use the vbox as a backend;

mint 18.3
kernel 4.13.0-38 generic
kodi 15.2 git unknown 15.2+dfsg1-3 ubuntu1.1

System is fully up to date.

Install the kodi-pvr-vbox from the software manager, available version is


Trying to install gives some dependency errors;

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

kodi-pvr-vbox: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:3.0) but 1:6.0.1-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: libp8-platform2 (>= 1: but 1: is to be installed
Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 6) but 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.9 is to be installed

Any advice to resolve this?

I fixed this. The mint package manager installed 15, version 17 latest, which can be installed by terminal and manual apt get as in the Ubuntu install wiki

Good tip. As I have 15 on my Ubuntu laptop, and wish to upgrade to 17.
Did you do a fresh install or install over version 15.
