openSUSE Leap 15.0 - Failed to initialize

Post by bib1963 » Wed Jan 23, 2019 9:47 pm

Is anyone else able to get makemkv working on the above? Worked fine for years until recently.

Doing a ltrace/strace on "makemkvcon info list", suggests the last thing it does is open up ~/.MakeMKV/_private_data.tar, and never gets to access the actual disc, before failing with the line - Failed to initialize. Does this with any makemkvcon command.

Running makemkv does not get any further. The popup box says roughly the same thing with the gui never starting.

All the libs are up to date from packman etc, and grepping for open/stat from the resultant trace, does not show any missing libs.

And this is the paid program, not the short term freebie.

Ugh... 1.14 is just plain broken for some folk.

Seems if you want a working system then download the 1.12.2 bin package and the 1.12.3 oss package from http://www.makemkv.com/download/old/ and install them.

Streaming does not work in 1.12.3, but does in 1.12.2, so as the oss package only provides the gui, which calls the bin package - /usr/bin/makemkvcon, it should work.
