Re: Question to all: MakeMKV without GUI, console only

Please give me some feedback if you are using MakeMKV without GUI, only the console app. This applies to any OS, but most of you do this on Linux, so that's why the question is posted here. Hi Mike, just so it isn't forgotten: On FreeBSD, GUI just doesn't work, because 'makemkvcon' running in Linux...

Re: How long will an older version continue to work?

I still think there's some confusion about what I'm asking. Regardless of the beta key expiry -- makemkvcon will tell you that it won't run any more and you have to upgrade the software. What I want to know is the exact scheme when this error will be shown. It's a different error than the one about ...

Re: How long will an older version continue to work?

I didn't ask about expiration of keys, but of program versions, that's a different topic.

How long will an older version continue to work?

A few days ago, 1.15.1 refused to work, stating the version was too old. Today it worked again :?: Is this a random glitch?

In general, how long will a version continue to work after a new version is released? Would it be ok to keep 1.15.1 in a quarterly package repository until october?

Re: MakeMKV on FreeBSD

The port just hit the official FreeBSD ports: https://www.freshports.org/multimedia/makemkv/ The main restriction is still that GUI won't work, and there are some annoyances on FreeBSD (namely having to build a custom kernel with "sg" devices, and the fact makemkvcon always crashes on exit), so stil...

Re: MakeMKV on FreeBSD

The port is now updated to 1.15.0
It will take a lot of time to build because building a whole GNU toolchain is needed to get a libstdc++.so.6 which is compatible with the new makemkvcon binary (the version in FreeBSD's linux-c7 ports is too old)

Re: MakeMKV v1.15.0 Application failed to initialize

@old-linux that's why I suggested to mike to build with a static libstdc++ ;) Yes, makemkvcon is closed source. If you want to run it unmodified, your best bet is to upgrade your system. Your second best bet is to install a newer GNU toolchain from source locally, but that's pretty though... Right n...

Re: MakeMKV v1.15.0 Application failed to initialize

I have the same problem trying to update my FreeBSD port to 1.15.0 -- FreeBSD uses Centos 7 packages for Linux compatibility, so libstdc++ comes from GCC 4.8. It seems makemkvcon now needs at least the version from GCC 5.2 :( @mike, maybe you could build makemkvcon with "-static-libstdc++ -static-li...

Re: FreeBSD with Linux compatibility: makemkvcon works, but not in guiserver mode

Some help from somebody who knows the source would be quite nice. I'm almost there with porting, my port builds and installs MakeMKV console-only automatically and it runs fine*). A second port could build the Qt GUI (probably to a native FreeBSD binary), but as long as "makenkvcon guiserver G0012" ...

For anyone who's interested, there's also a Port now, building and installing this console-only version:

Re: GLIBC_2.28 not found on Ubuntu

Just a hint, almost every Makefile includes a "clean" target, so all you have to do is start with "make clean" before you rebuild.

Re: GLIBC_2.28 not found on Ubuntu

libmakemkv.so.1 is a library built from the "makemkv-oss" source package. So the situation you're seeing here is impossible if you built and installed makemkv-oss on the same machine you're trying to run makemkv (without having some newer GLIBC in some non-standard path and setting strange build fla...

FreeBSD with Linux compatibility: makemkvcon works, but not in guiserver mode

I'm trying to create a fully working port of MakeMKV on FreeBSD. As long as there is no "makemkvcon" binary for FreeBSD available, the way to go is to use the Linux version with FreeBSD's Linux compatibility layer, therefore I'm asking here in the Linux subforum. For reference, here's my own HOWTO f...

Re: MakeMKV on FreeBSD

Found out now that it's makemkvcon itself searching for the drive in sysfs, so some trickery will be needed for FreeBSD. Anyways, I found a way to build MakeMKV on FreeBSD without using a jail or a VM and at least it works without GUI. For everyone who wants to give it a try, I wrote a HOWTO on the ...

Re: MakeMKV on FreeBSD

I have an idea now: makemkvcon links to libmakemkv.so, which is built from source, correct? Does this also include the code for communicating with the drive? I this case, a fully working port should be doable! makemkvcon would still need to run with FreeBSD's Linux emulation as long as there's no of...
