http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys, My server while running like a champ has hit a really frustrating problem. If I try to install or uninstall any programs mediatomb configures and I am forced to kill -9 dpkg (which in turn requires dpkg reconfigure a). Code: matt@matt-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a dpkg: error processing mediatomb-daemon (--configure):  Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should  reinstall it before attempting configuration. Errors were encountered while processing:  mediatomb-daemon Code: matt@matt-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install powertop Readin (Hardware)
