dvd::rip problems

Im trying to rip a movie using dvd::rip and am getting a couple errors after it finishes. this is what they say.

An internal exception was thrown!
The error message was:

Error executing command identify - ping /home/adam/DVDRips/unnamed/tmp/unnamed-001-preview-clip1.jpg:
identify: unable to open image '/home/adam/DVDRips/unnamed/tmp/unnamed-001-preview-clip1.jpg'. No such file or directory.
identify: missing an image filename '/home/adam/DVDRips/unnamed/tmp/unnamed-001-preview-clip1.jpg'
at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4/Video/DVDRip/GUI/Project/ line 912
can't read '/home/adam/DVDRips/unnamed/tmp/unnamed-001-preview-orig.raw' at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4/Video/DVDRip/ line 2467
ive never used this program before, but i thought i changed all the settings to what they needed to be. It looks like the problem has something to do with grabbing a preview frame in the Clip & Zoom tab. if you guys know whats happening or if its even important please let me know.

You need to get a screen capture, and choose your image quality(like NTSC high/med/low/anastropic/etc) before you convert. You didn't do that.

I need to do that before i Rip or before i Transcode/Convert? I hadnt even gotten to the converting part yet. it happened right after i ripped it. its giving me the same error when i click the Grab Frame button before i rip as well. i think dvd::rip uses ImageMagick to do those screen caps, and i know i installed that module when i built dvd::rip.

The same error occured after update. Look for the commands in DVD::RIP Logging Tab. Here is something like this:

-snip snap-
Tue May 10 10:14:14 2005 Starting job (1): Grabbing preview - title #1, frame #2574
Tue May 10 10:14:14 2005 Executing command: mkdir -m 0775 /tmp/dvdrip8877.ppm; cd /tmp/dvdrip8877.ppm; dr_exec transcode -H 10 -z -k -o snapshot -y ppm,null -x vob,null -i /mnt/sda3/temp/test/vob/001-C001 -c 13-14 -L 29508 && dr_exec convert -size 720x576 /tmp/dvdrip8877.ppm/snapshot*.ppm /mnt/sda3/temp/test/tmp/test-001-preview-orig.jpg && dr_exec convert -size 720x576 /tmp/dvdrip8877.ppm/snapshot*.ppm gray:/mnt/sda3/temp/test/tmp/test-001-preview-orig.raw && rm -r /tmp/dvdrip8877.ppm && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS
-snap snip-

The commands are chained with "&&". Next command will execute only if previous exits without errors.
Check each command in a terminal (without dr_exec).

In my case transcode aborted with error in glibc

-snip snap-
[transcode] encoded 1 frames (0 dropped, 0 cloned), clip length 0.04 s
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (out): 0xb73e3008 ***
Abgebrochen [Abort]
-snap snip-

I found in transcode forum following:

-snip snap-
From: Rick Harris <rickharris <at>>
Subject: Lanczos3 dies with newer glibc
Date: 2005-04-22 07:12:23 GMT (2 weeks, 4 days, 1 hour and 58 minutes ago)
As far as I can see, the problem lies directly with the way
>=glibc-2.3.4-20041102 interacts with transcode's zoom.c/.h code.

Turning off this glibc error check with 'export MALLOC_CHECK_=0' &
re-running transcode results in the error disappearing, but transcode is
still 'Killed'.
-snap snip-

Unfortuneatly only the errormessage disappears. The transcode command still exit with the error.
Update transcode. In my case transcode 0.6.14 work without errors.
If you donīt want inverted and fliped images update also dvd::rip to newest version, because the transcode commands changed a little bit.
dvd::rip 0.52.3
glibc 2.3.5 (properly a litle bit older version works too. Not tested)
transcode 0.6.14
How to update depends on the distro you use.

Hope this helps...
