So my DVD copied to a 7gb file in about 40 minutes with no apparent problems, but then Pburn crashed while shrinking it. Can you recommend something that is more stable than Tahrpup 6.0 CE? I'm using a Sony Vaio from 2007 that has 2gb RAM, and will soon be using a slightly newer laptop that has double that.

Tahrpup 6.0 could just be your problem.
That was the first release of Tahrpup and it was buggy.

The newest bug fixed version is Tahrpup 6.0.6
Download from here:

Tahrpup has got issues with pBurn as well as ffconvert and pMusic because of using libav instead of ffmpeg. More recent Ubuntu-builds has not this problem. Slacko is just working...

Edit: I found answers to many newbie questions in the Slacko release notes (http://slacko.eezy.xyz/notes.php), but one thing is still not 100% clear to me: It says that the 64-bit version of Slacko has "32-bit compatibility libraries." Does this mean that 64-bit Slacko can be used to run a 32-bit processor? If so, why would anyone bother with a 32-bit version of Slacko?

Anyway, thanks for your recommendations! I will try Slacko 6.3.2 first, and if that doesn't work, then Tahrpup 6.0.6

So with Slacko 6.3.2, after about 6 hours, I ended up with a full-length DVD copy that has no audio! I played it on another machine to make sure.

When the burn was finished, it asked me if I wanted to save the rip, and then it put it in a pBurn folder somewhere, I can't remember where.

Ideally, I would like to rip DVDs to an ISO file on my hard drive, rather than burning them to plastic, but when pBurn asked me to put a blank DVD in the drive, I was afraid not to, as I thought it might just cancel and delete the whole 6-hour project, but anyway, the disk it produced has no sound!

Remember pBurn is only a frontend for several programs. pBurn builds executable files to run the chosen commands. You can see the commands in $HOME/.pburn/tmp/exec and $HOME/.pburn/tmp/exec_preburn. The same info is available in the 'Advanced' tab in the burn dialog or in the saved burn-log.

To debug this info is a must-have. Since the log-file also outputs info and errors from the backends, this is the best source of wisdom...

Are you sure there is nothing wrong with the DVD hardware?
Those DVD drives do not last forever!
Check for:
Dirty disk?
Dirty internal lens?

Subject description: copy shrinki burn fails
 

Pburn 3.7.18 Copy Shrink DVD is failing, here is my setup:

-hardware=intel dual core, 2gb ram
-puppy precise 5.7.1 retro frugal on 60gb ext2, 25gb free
-temporary files on /mnt/home/movies (ext2)
-all dependencies=OK

At the end of the ripping process pburn creates the file:
/mnt/home/movies/the_video_you_wanted1.vob.partial
If I open this file in VLC it is the complete movie.

The pburn log gives this error:

I've tried multiple dvd's and always get the same result. If I try the same dvd's in puppy lucid 5.2.8
they copy with no errors.

Tried pburn 4.3.16, same result.

Any way to fix this in 5.7.1?

Seems that vobcopy didn't complete the decrypting of the movie. You ended up with the *.partial file which is a temporary file for the decrypt/copy process.

You state that temporary space is 25Gb, so that shouldn't be any issue. I have not much experience with this, but maybe your memory of 2Gb is the weak point...

Anyway, Precise Puppy (and Tahr Puppy) is not the recommended option, since it ships libav as a substitute for ffmpeg. Libav has been bad for several Puppy apps such as pBurn, ffConvert and pMusic. You would probably get more errors during conversion to NTSC/PAL.

You have also tested pBurn 4, but this won't work properly in a pristine Precise Puppy since pBurn 4 requires CdrTools as burning backend. Precise includes the rather outdated CdrKit which only is supported by pBurn 3.

Please consider a more recent Puppy. Mick released beta 3 of the very latest... Here you find a 32bit iso for older hardware while the 64bit is more bloated and with a more recent Linux kernel.

@zigbert
I hate to give up precise 5.7.1 retro since it has a lot of drivers for
the older hardware I often install it on. Are you sure precise doesn't
have ffmpeg? When I type ffmpeg in a console it gives:

Code:
ffmpeg version 0.8.6-4:0.8.6-0ubuntu0.12.04.1, Copyright (c) 2000-2013 the Libav developers
  built on Apr  2 2013 17:00:59 with gcc 4.6.3
*** THIS PROGRAM IS DEPRECATED ***
This program is only provided for compatibility and will be removed in a future release. Please use avconv instead.
Hyper fast Audio and Video encoder
usage: ffmpeg [options] [[infile options] -i infile]... {[outfile options] outfile}...

Use -h to get full help or, even better, run 'man ffmpeg'

Also, pdvdsrab 0.2, which I think also uses ffmpeg, does work in precise
on the same dvd. For casual users, pburn is better because it requires less user
knowledge/input.

I've also tried ripping a dvd with VLC into a single .mpg file and then using pburn to shrink, author & burn that to a disk. It works, but the shrink factor is to high. A 6.0gb .mpg file becomes 2.6gb (total) in the video_ts directory. Is there a way to control the shrink in pburn?


Thanks for pburn & the other applications you've written for puppy

Sigmund and WiZard, I don't have precise, but do have tahr. I've been using tahr 6.0.6 for a few weeks.
Look:
Code:
~> ffmpeg -version
ffmpeg version 2.5.3 Copyright (c) 2000-2015 the FFmpeg developers
built on Feb  7 2015 17:23:31 with gcc 4.6 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.4-6ubuntu2)
I did look at package manager, and apparently I'd added it, from
Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6275491 Feb 15 16:48 ffmpeg-2.5.3-i386.pet

Would that or some other ffmpeg work in precise?

Oh:
Code:
~> which ffmpeg
/usr/bin/ffmpeg
~> ls -l /usr/bin/ffmpeg
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 211760 Feb  7  2015 /usr/bin/ffmpeg
~>

Good suggestion, I downloaded and installed the ffmpeg-2.5.3-i386.pet.

Code:
ffmpeg ---version
ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libxcb-xfixes.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Something still missing. Did some googling on it and found no clear answer.

thanks

PostPosted: Thu 25 May 2017, 20:32    Post subject: pburn in precise 5.7.1 copy shrink dvd faillure  

After a lot of testing I found the answer for the Puppy Precise 5.71 pburn copy, shrink, author, burn dvd failiure. The log in a previous post showed vobcopy failed to create the complete video file. The fix is to install vobcopy-1.1.0.pet, the new vobcopy is installed in /usr/local/bin. Since the original vobcopy file is in /usr/bin you must either rename, move, or delete that file (/usr/bin/vobcopy). Tested and working in both pburn and pdvdsrab.

Thank you for testing, but most of all; thank you for giving this feedback. It is freally valuable knowledge.

I burnt xerus 8.2 ISO to a CD using pburn in fatdog 64 710.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=109067
It went well however there was some confusing terminology.
I suggest the following change in the instructions (see image)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Also when burning an ISO ---> the free space left on disk is confusing
Maybe this is needed but for most people all that is needed for
burning an ISO image is info on whether the disk size is sufficient.
