After moving myself to Arch, I believe you were right and can remove the stdc lib, it generates warnings on compile, but no different outcome. Apologies for the confusion.

Good call on not clobbering the variable, I brute-forced it. I would have agreed about just being bad luck, but downgraded to 1.15.1 and was able to read the discs that were problematic before, and attempted in 1.15.2 on Windows and were able to read those same discs.

Thanks for looking into this.

Strange, on Arch Linux I am able to read discs. Moreover, the linked topic is about a compilation issue, while your problem seems about reading discs. It might be just bad luck (I do have reading issues, too, every once in a while, probably due to wear of the BD-player).

Generally, I'm not that much in favour of adding specific flags for other distros than Arch, but I'll do some further testing (by adding the flag, it is not a good habit to completely overwrite them) and if it doesn't seem to hurt, I'll add it (without bumping pkgrel, as this change should result in the same package, anyway).

Hi, thanks for maintaining this.

As of updating to 1.15.2, I could no longer read discs (drive would just eternally spin up and down). Doing some reading led me to this thread: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&p=93416#p93416. Adding the CFLAGS allowed me to read discs again. (Manjaro 20.0.3, kernel 5.7.9).

when starting gnome so qt applications as well use wayland

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland exec dbus-run-session gnome-session

makemkv does not work with

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not find the Qt platform plugin "wayland" in ""
...
Aborted (core dumped)

add the qt5-wayland dependency solves the problem.

yay -S qt5-wayland

That only fixes it once, after reboot the kernel module is not automatically loaded. Did you read the message after installation?

"Starting from 1.10.8 the /dev/sgX device that corresponds to the drive is required. You may have to load the sg kernel module in order to create the device. To enable module autoloading run the following command as root and reboot:

echo sg > /etc/modules-load.d/sg.conf"

MakeMKV can't recognize my drive. It did work before, but I have reinstalled since then. I can mount my drive (/dev/sr0) and see the files on the disk, but MakeMKV can't see it. Is this a bug in the latest version or do I have some missing dependencies to install?

EDIT: Running "sudo modprobe sg" fixes the issue.

Please add ccextractor as an optional dependency (runtime) that is used to extract CC streams from some DVD media. Not sure this needs to be added to default, but ~/.MakeMKV/settings.conf needs the path for it.

Not sure why I didn't need that for previous versions but it works fine now after that. Thank you!
