Do a regression-like test. Remove all additional software from the device
(leaving a copy elsewhere, e.g. on the PC), then add packages one by one and
see at which point it breaks. You will soon find the culprit assuming it is
not a /combination/ of packages which triggers a conflict. If you have many
add-on applications this might be time-consuming.

Best wishes,
