makemkvcon on Raspberry Pi with Exagear

Post by mwjmwj » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:47 pm

Hi all,

Firstly, I have been a long time user of MakeMKV and I think it is brilliant!

I have been investigating running MakeMKV on the Raspberry Pi, which has an armv71 architecture CPU. I understand that the precompiled parts of MakeMKV have not been recompiled for arm so I can't run MakeMKV natively on the RPi, which led me to explore Exagear. As I understand it, Exagear is a userspace "virtual machine" which provides an i686 environment for userspace applications.

I have successfully installed the dependencies for MakeMKV and complied it within the Exagear environment. I have an external USB drive (externally powered) connected and mounted as /dev/sr1. However, when I try to read the disk, I get "The program can't find any usable optical drives". With debug enabled, I get the following output:

#> sudo makemkvcon --debug info dev:/dev/sr1
MakeMKV v1.10.4 linux(x86-release) started

I know the DVD player and USB connection work with MakeMKV as I have tested them on a different server.

This issue may simply just be due to the fact that Exagear interferes with the way MakeMKV reads from the drive, but does anyone have any suggestions?
