DVDStyler help please.
« on: April 16, 2012, 10:31:00 am »
I am having a problem with DVDStyler 1.8.1 which I installed  from a Multimedia CD that I downloaded from the internet having heard about it from streachedthin, and the problem in question is that it works great - UNTIL I try to burn a DVD or create an ISO file, then I get the following error message:

M0E-lnx

you need the ImageMagick package installed.

We have the latest ImageMagick in the untested repositories

OK, now which of those files should I download and how do I go about installing it (or them)?

edit your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file in a text editor and add this

Code: [Select]
SOURCE=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/x86Assuming you run vectorlinux 7.0 i586 because the MMBD is not available for 64-bit afaik.

Then run
Code: [Select]
slapt-get -u && slapt-get -i ImageMagick

I already had that version plus I had tried the earlier version and got the same result - which prompted me to ask for the help in the first place.

Looks like it wants an older version of the package.  I'm trying to have the bot build a newer version of dvdstyler too.  it's due for an update.  Check the untested repo later to see if it makes it there later today.

in the mean time you could try to make a symlink:
Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/lib/libMagickCore.so.4 /usr/lib/libMagickCore.so.3

Doesn't that mean your data is larger than the disc capacity?

The file that I am using (2.5 GB) is actually LESS than the capacity of the DVD (4.7 GB).

There is a newer version in the untested repo.  Try it and see if it produces the same error

now that... I have no idea about.  I've never used dvdstyler before, so I wouldn't know how to help you anymore.  Sorry
