Acidrip - Encoding Status not updating


My favourite program Acidrip is not updating the encoding status.

I have just upgraded to Mandriva 64, and installed acidrip from PLF via urpmi. It appears to work fine in that it actually does then encoding but instead of the encoding status updating there are a number of status messages (which appear to be the encoding status) greyed out in the output log.

Clearly I could compile from source as an option but I thought I'd ask first in case there is a known quick fix.

Regards
David

well i'd doubt recompiling would help, seeing as acidrip isn't a compiled binary, but a perl script.

I would *guess* that the output from mencoder could be slightly different and so the regex's it's getting information from aren't functioning... if you run the mencoder command yourself, taken from the queue window or log output, show me what it looks like and i'll see if it matches what i'm expecting acidrip to find.

Chris - Many thanks

Here is a line of the memcoder output copied from the log as displayed by AcidRip

Quote:
Pos:1340.6s 33517f (56%) 53.91fps Trem: 8min 308mb A-V:0.065 [958:119]
And here is the encoding line

Quote:

Thanks for looking at this for me. Appreciate the moderation work you do in this forum, and for AcidRip in the first place.

David

Did anyone figure out what the problem with acidrip not showing the status?
I have the same problem myself: The encoding works fine, but no status is displayed.
I am running Mandriva 2006 on two x64 machines, and it works on one, but not the other. It also works on a i586 machine. Am I missing a library or something?
