I have done that, no effect. I still get unmet dependencies when trying to install xbmc or kodi. Kodi will look for kodi.bin, and attempting to install xbmc, results in dependency failure from kodi.

I kept digging on this and found that each time I pinned a higher version of a dependency, another dependency popped up. I am running vanilla SteamOS with the latest build (153 i think).

After I could not get that to work, I turned on SteamOS beta. No dice again.

next I edited the preferences file to be


Code:
Package: *
Pin: origin mirrors.xbmc.org
Pin-Priority: 800

Package: *
Pin: release l=SteamOS
Pin-Priority: 900

Package: *
Pin: release l=Debian
Pin-Priority: -10


This allowed me to get through the initial error but ran into:
Code:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kodi-bin : Depends: libva-x11-1 (> 1.3.0~) but 1.0.15-4 is to be installed
            Depends: libva1 (> 1.3.0~) but 1.0.15-4 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Sigh.

Next I ran the apt-cache policy on those files and found SteamOS has the updated files I needed. Back to perferences file. It now reads:

Code:
Package: *
Pin: origin mirrors.xbmc.org
Pin-Priority: 800

Package: *
Pin: release l=SteamOS
Pin-Priority: 900

Package: *
Pin: release l=Debian
Pin-Priority: -10

Package: libva-x11-1
Pin: release l=SteamOS
Pin-Priority: 900

Package: libva1
Pin: release l=SteamOS
Pin-Priority: 900


tada!!! Kodi 14.1 installs.

your pinning is essentially the same as on the OP.
Package: *
Pin: release l=SteamOS
Pin-Priority: 900

already includes libva stuff, so thats redundant. I wonder why you have debian in there(even if its -10). Did you install something from debian repos?

@wsnipex. I am going to blow away the box, update it again, and then try to install Kodi again. I'll screen capture errors as I go.

Followed every instruction to the letter on a fresh install of SteamOS, I keep getting unmet dependencies errors. First for kodi, then for kodi-bin, then I get "kodi-bin : Depends: libtag1c2a (>= 1.8) but 1.7.2+bsos8 is to be installed

Not sure how to fix this, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am in the same boat as @Arsoul. Any advice on how to get kodi up and running would be greatly appreciated!

apt-cache policy libtag1c2a kodi

version 1.9 should be available in our repo. Maybe SteamOS changed something or you have some other package that hard-depends on that ancient 1.7 version.

completely off topic here. Whatever a "kodicast" is, it has nothing to do with SteamOS

desktop@steamos:~$ apt-cache policy libtag1c2a kodi
libtag1c2a:
Installed: 1.7.2-1+bsos8
Candidate: 1.7.2-1+bsos8
Version table:
1.9.1-2 0
800 http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/steamos/ alchemist/main amd64 Packages
*** 1.7.2-1+bsos8 0
900 http://repo.steampowered.com/steamos/ alchemist/main amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
1.7.2-1 0
110 http://ftp.ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy/main amd64 Packages
kodi:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: 2:14.1~git20150131.1014-38e4046-0
Version table:
2:14.1~git20150131.1014-38e4046-0 0
800 http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/steamos/ alchemist/main amd64 Packages



So I saw that there is indeed a 1.9.1-2 version package there.... So I just changed the pin-priority of the xbmc repo to 900 and made the steamOS pin-priority 800 in the preference file and tried again and.... it worked!
Hopefully nothing bad comes out of changing those pin-priorities. I changed them back to 800 and 900 respectively after the install.

Only worked here when I added libtag1-vanilla to the exception, like that:

Package: libtag1c2a libtag1-vanilla
Pin: origin mirrors.xbmc.org
Pin-Priority: 901

I tested it on 2 fresh installs... on both times it refused to install kodi until I made the change above...

Are AMD GPU's still not supported? Typical! Have 6 Arctic MC001's with Atom D525 and AMD mobile GPU's inside and was hoping to add SteamOS once I build my new Media server and add IHS. The atoms will melt with software decode whereas these machines are fine for 1080 video with Vanilla Kodi.
