'kodi' fix for 'exodus' crashes on Linux Mint 18

I am using Linux Mint 18 and I was using 'kodi' and 'exodus' for a while. Then after an update 'exodus' stopped working and would crash with a core dump.

Well it was time to look on Google for a fix. It was quite a search but I finally found the fix.

search for 'wget'
The click on each of the 'wget' links, this will download those file to your selected directory.

The don't do what the author says next instead go to the directory where you downloaded the files and type:

sudo dpkg --install python-openssl_16.2.0-1_all.deb

and then do

sudo dpkg --install python-cryptography_1.7.1-2_amd64.deb

​Then start 'kodi' it should work now.​

The downloads and installs two python library file for 'crypto' and the 'openssl' update.

This was a long hard trek but I finally got 'kodi' to work again. I hope this help someone.

We moved from New Bury Park in Southern California to New Bern, North Carolina the beginning of April. It was quite a move, all the way across the US. We flew and shipped our furniture and car. We are in a nice cottage (or Villa) as they call it here in the Courtyard at Berne Village at 2701 Amhurst Blvd.

This is a retirement community and so far is pretty nice. More information as we get acclimated.
