Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

We've got it included in our main repo just fine with Gentoo, quick glance it looks like Ubuntu and Fedora aren't that hard either. Not sure which OS the OP is talking about here.

Re: Starting makemkvcon through udev rule - strange behaviour

It's an old post I know, but udev is tricky, so here I am. :) I invested a bunch of time googling and found that you can't start long living processes from udev. So i set up another ("in-between") script (run_on_disc_inserted.sh) which is called by udev and simply starts my ripping script in this wa...

Re: Detect Blu-ray optical disc drive speed?

Okay, I figured it out. Put a Blu-ray disc in your tray (not DVD or CD, they will report different speeds), and run cdrdao: cdrecord -prcap Here's a snippet from mine: Maximum read speed: 17982 kB/s (CD 102x, DVD 12x, BD 4x) Current read speed: 17982 kB/s (CD 102x, DVD 12x, BD 4x) Maximum write spee...

Detect Blu-ray optical disc drive speed?

So, Blu-ray drives have different read speeds. Spec says a 1x can read at 32 Mbits / second, or, 4.5 megabytes.

Is there a way though to detect the read-speed of an optical drive in Linux that anyone knows of?

Re: Optical Drive not being found

Just a heads up, if you're using Gentoo, you'll need SCSI generic support in your kernel built-in or as a module (sg). Look for CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SG

Code: Select all

Device drivers -->
  SCSI device support -->
    <*> SCSI generic support

Script to rip DVD / Blu-ray from any source (iso, dir, dev)

Here's a script I wrote and use to rip all my stuff regardless of where it's at -- a device file, a directory, or an ISO I've already made, and will use the proper makemkvcon arguments. Some example usages: dvd_makemkv /dev/sr0 dvd_makemkv bluray.iso dvd_makemkv /mnt/bluray Here you go, hope this he...
