Hiya, GG.

Ah, good; glad it worked for ya.

Regarding the 'gargantuan' size; that is, of course, why I made it up as an SFS.....so's it can be loaded/unloaded as & when necessary.

Battleshooter originally put this glibc 'upgrade' together simply for getting Chrome/Chromium working in Racy & Carolina.....but I just keep finding new uses for it! The beauty of it is that it doesn't overwrite the existing glibc/libstdc++.so.6; it adds these alongside them.....so that applications can pick up the relevant version that they're looking for.

Seems to work rather well!

Enjoy.


Mike. Wink

In slacko 5.6 a general glibc upgrade is not required: only libstdc++.so.6 must be upgraded. I used libstdc++.so.6 from centos 6 for the following package.

Ah! Thanks, watchdog; I did wonder about that, I will admit.

'Twas pure experimentation on my part. Since it worked, and all else appeared to function OK, I left it at that... However, I've since found it's also enabled me to run a newer version of Cinelerra. Previously, only 4.2 would work in Slackos 560 & 570; now, I can run 5.0 (which is a more competent release), so; I'm quite happy with that.

Cheers for the info, anyway!

Thanks Watchdog - works well on my Slacko 5.6 derivative.

I do have a problem with Lossless cut not recognising .avi files. Webm is fine, but not avi

Do others have this same issue?

Yep; you're not the only one with that problem, mate. It also doesn't seem to like .flv. Mind you, Avidemux doesn't seem to much like those two either..... As you say, strangely LosslessCut appears quite happy with .webm (which is a much newer format). Odd, that.

'Horses for courses', I guess.

-----------------------------------------

Your 'tweaked' version is running beautifully in Upup Raring, watchdog. Raring, of course, has a newer glibc anyway (2.17), so it was just the newer libstdc++.so.6 that was required. And Cinelerra 5.0 is happy with glibc 2.17, so I haven't bothered with battleshooter's 'upgrade' in this particular case, since it wasn't in fact needed. (It's stuff I'm reluctant to alter/modify/change unless there's an advantage to be gained, because there's too much potential for 'bricking'.....and I'm still rather hazy on how much of that side of things works.)

Anyway; thank you, mi amigo. Much appreciated.


Mike. Wink

Morning, kiddiwinks.

The new version of LosslessCut was released literally just a couple of hours ago - v.1.11.0.

I've downloaded the .zip archive, but since it's way past my bedtime and I'm that tired I can't concentrate any longer, that's all I'm doing for now.....

A new SFS package will be following sometime tomorrow. Watch this space! Smile

AVI is just a container. It is the codecs used to compress/format/etc the contained audio and video tracks that is probably causing the problem for LosslessCut (and other such tools). Lossless cutting also relies on sufficient 'Key Frames' (to allow accurate cutting), which is where the cuts are made leaving the inbetween data untouched. So a lot depends on how things are encoded rather than the container format used to store the whole kaboodle:

Losslesscut is also meant as a lossless audio cutter. But there is one strange in it, it has language .pak files, but you can't switch to them.

That's probably because the Electron framework stuff (which is most of the contents of the directory, AFAICT) is fairly 'generic'. The language pack files will in all likelihood be there for every application produced with it; but accessing them is going to depend entirely on whether the developer has written his code to actually use them.....
