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.

Executed command: mkdir -m 0775 /tmp/dvdrip2269.ppm; cd /tmp/dvdrip2269.ppm; dr_exec transcode -H 10 -z -k -o snapshot -y ppm,null -x vob,null -i /home/kevin/documents/dvdrip//Cellular/vob/001 -c 9-10 -L 1030139 && dr_exec convert -size 720x480 /tmp/dvdrip2269.ppm/snapshot*.ppm /home/kevin/documents/dvdrip//Cellular/tmp/Cellular-001-preview-orig.jpg && dr_exec convert -size 720x480 /tmp/dvdrip2269.ppm/snapshot*.ppm gray:/home/kevin/documents/dvdrip//Cellular/tmp/Cellular-001-preview-orig.raw && rm -r /tmp/dvdrip2269.ppm && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS

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.

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

Cool

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.
