I added a post install warning. I don't think a package should autoload a module that is not part of the package.

@hydro: What about javmorin's suggestion to add a makemkv.conf file to automatically load the sg driver? I can confirm that MakeMKV works properly again after loading that module.

I can confirm that makemkv works normally after loading of the sg module.

Per it would seem correct to add an '/etc/modules-load.d/makemkv.conf' file to this package which triggers loading of the sg module on boot. At the very least there should be a post install warning indicating that loading of the sg module is required for makemkv to run properly.

Correction: since it is being installed via package it would be /usr/lib/modules-load.d/makemkv.conf

Regarding the unrecognised drives: mike said in the liked thread that makemkv now needs the generic scsi sg driver, which it seems is not loaded by default on arch.

After loading the driver (e.g through modprobe sg) my drive is recognised again, but I haven't tested actually reading a disk.

It looks like

is a dead link now. However, this one is available:

1.10.9 seems to fail to detect some drives (including one of mine)

Sadly, it doesn't work for me. I get a "Failed to initialize" popup when running the gui and a segmentation fault when trying the cli makemkvcon

[user@machine ~]$ makemkvcon
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any update on this issue yet?

EDIT: Ignore my comment, it all seems to be working now.

I saw it posted somewhere else that the site was migrated but the DNS records have not been updated.

I believe if you force it (via hosts file), this will work:

It's just not desirable.

lmat commented on 2017-10-08 19:25

Me, too. I tried with

makepkg -sri --skipchecksums --skipinteg

and got

PKGBUILD: line 27: cd: /home/lawsa/builds/aur/makemkv/src/makemkv-oss-1.10.7: No such file or directory

so I'm guessing it's worse than a md5 problem? Perhaps something is out of sync between the package build and mkv source...
