I installed mediatomb by adding http://apt.mediatomb.cc/ to my repositories. Recently, adept update notifies me that an update is available. I tried to update (mediatomb may have been running at the time) and something failed. Now, I am unable to remove or re-install mediatomb. How can I fix this?
Here is the output from an attempt to remove:
~$ sudo apt-get --purge remove mediatomb

sorry for the late reply, I hoped that Leo would be around, but unfortunately he is still unavailable. I can not help you with Ubuntu, so we will have to wait till Leo is back.
Sorry for the late reply - I was very busy the last couple of days.
I don't know what happened exactly, but you can remove the MediaTomb package if you delete the start/stop script first by issuing the command "sudo rm /etc/init.d/mediatomb".
I will try to fix this for the next version.
