mimms error


Hi, since mimms is a small program, I tried to play with it to rip mms streams, but it shows the following error, I have searched online, but very little was found, and the comments found said it was a bug.
Code:
sh-3.1# mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072 /mnt/sda1/test.asf
Connecting ...libmms error: libmms connection error
Thanks

Why are you running this program as root ?


Assume mimms-3.2.1.
And a libmms-0.5, installed with your 'Package Manager'.
( Or with : ./configure --prefix=/usr/ ).

$ mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072 : I get no errors.

HI!!!! Thanks! I think the error is now gone after i cd into some directory:
Code:
sh-3.1# cd /mnt/sda1/
sh-3.1# mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072
Connecting ...
Download aborted by user.
This looks like its running normally, but I cant find the file in mnt/sda1? where should it be?
Thanks

Hi, I dont know why, but it suddenly doesn't work again? is it unstable? And i tried to look for the package as well.
Code:
sh-3.1# apt-get install libmms-0.5
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package libmms-0.5
sh-3.1# cd /mnt/sda1/
sh-3.1# mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072
Connecting ...libmms error: libmms connection error
Thanks again,

Well, you could have told in post # 1, that it's a "Debian" system. (Ubuntu?)
http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...Ask_a_Question
http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

The commands are : 1) apt-cache search libmms : To decide a package name.
2) apt-get install libmms0
2a) apt-get install libmms-dev : If you will reinstall 'mimms'.


[knudfl@localhost 3]$ mimms mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072
mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072 => RA000072.wmv
""5.56 MB / ∞ B (8.04 kB/s, ∞ s remaining""

With 8 kB/s you will not get a file in 2 minutes : Nothing appears.

THanks, sorry for not mentioning it's a debian system, cause its actually a chrooted environment. it's not ubuntu, more like a unofficial freeware running on a light machine.
I've tried both commands: apt-get install libmms0 and apt-get install libmms-dev, libmms-dev was already installed, libmms0 is newly installed, but after all, it's still the same result:
Code:
sh-3.1# mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072
Connecting ...libmms error: libmms connection error

sh-3.1# cd /mnt/sda1/
sh-3.1# dir
ajaxterm        blogrss.run        ftpupload.run        libmad    lighttpd-angel  mmsrip            plowshare  samba_3.0.10-r0_arm.ipk  streamripper
blog_chroot.sh  blogrss_chroot.sh  ftpupload_chroot.sh  lighttpd  lighttpdo       mplayerecord.run  record     script_backup
sh-3.1# mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072
Connecting ...libmms error: libmms connection error
Thanks,
Ted

The command : cat /etc/issue : Will tell, which Debian you have.
And : 'uname -a' : If it is a 32bits or a 64bits OS.

'mimms' is not working with the Debian 'libmms0'. Must be removed :
apt-get remove libmms0 libmms-dev

libmms http://sourceforge.net/projects/libm...ar.gz/download
cd libmms-0.6.2/ && ./configure --prefix=/usr/ && make && make install

And on Debian Lenny 32bits : No timeout by using 'mimms -t 2'.
mimms -t 2 mms://bcr.media.hinet.net/RA000072
... And 'RA000072.wmv', 966 kB was downloaded.
