DVD::RIP Kernel Issues
 
18 months or so ago, I built DVD::RIP from source under my old 2.4 kernel. Everything was great; I could rip, transcode, and burn DVDs. A few months later, however, I moved to 2.6.6, and started getting a strange error. I can rip movies just fine, but as soon as it tries to generate a preview clip, I get an error window. The funny thing is that I can reboot back into 2.4, and won't have this problem. I have tried rebuilding everything under 2.6 with no luck. I have tried different releases and CVS snapshots of transcode. I can still reboot in 2.4 to clip and transcode, but rebooting reminds me too much of another OS. ;) I gave up on it for a while, but have now come back to try to solve it. I run Debian Testing on an Athlon 2700+ with kernel.org 2.6.6 custom kernel unpatched. I am reluctant to go through the hassle of upgrading my kernel just to try to fix this, if that is indeed the problem, because everything else is pleasant and stable. Any ideas would be appreciated. Here's a sample error:

(I think the libdvdread errors are non-issues, because I can rip the whole vob, but I wouldn't guarantee it)

Job 'Grabbing preview - title #1, frame #68123' failed.

well, 2.6.6 is quite old now, and everything before .7 has odd issues.

is there a reason you're not using debians 2.6.8? you can always recompile that and the patches are most always a good thing. I've done dvd::rip with 2.6.8 on Sarge before and it worked great.

id love to upgrade my kernel, but god knows ive tried. i just stick with 2.4.x *grins*

my dvdrip worked yesterday, then today chose to up and die. could not apt-get install dvdrip for some crazy depency issues so im trying apt-get upgrade, then ill see if i can get dvdrip to reinstall and work again *frown*

when's the last time you did an "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade"?

kdogksu 03-01-2005 10:55 PM

I have done a dist-upgrade several times during the course of this problem with no luck. I will download a more recent kernel and give it a shot when I get some free time. Does anyone have any version recommendations? I use nvidia drivers, so I'd like good compatibility with those. If I go with the debian kernel, do I need to do anything different from the usual `make menuconfig` and build? I like to customize for my system. Thanks!

I've been running 2.6.8 fro debian for some time now with no kernel related issues, including using the nvidia drivers and vmware (which also has to compile drivers).

this about sums it up http://myrddin.org/howto/debian-kernel-recompile.php

Updating to 2.6.8 fixed my trouble! Thanks for the help. Also, I have yet to witness some of the other quirkiness I had been occasionally observing under 2.6.6, so I think (hope?) the upgrade fixed more than just the transode issue. I'd recommend upgrading for anyone else having similar issues.
