For reference, here's my own HOWTO for getting it to run properly: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/inst ... bsd.70614/
As the next step, I tried to get the GUI to work as well. It took a bit of debugging to understand why it couldn't start makemkvcon (the reason was looking for its own path through /proc/self/exe which doesn't exist on FreeBSD, but this was easily changed) -- but now I'm hitting a roadblock
From debugging "makemkv", I could see it tries to launch "makemkvcon guiserver G0012" (where G0012 seems to be a protocol version). It seems there's some output from "makemkvcon" expected ... what I see instead is makemkvcon exits immediately, without any output.
Unfortunately, I can't see the source of makemkvcon for debugging this
So my question here is, what could be wrong in the environment for makemkvcon so that
- "makemkvcon info disc:0", "makemkvcon mkv disc:0 0 .", etc all works well, while
- "makemkvcon guiserver G0012" exits without any output?
Thanks for hints on this
