NetBSD server1 5.0.2_PATCH NetBSD 5.0.2_PATCH (MYKERNEL) #1: Tue Apr 27 22:24:35 CEST 2010  root@server1:/usr/obj/sys/arch/amd64/compile/MYKERNEL amd64

After an upgrade to pkgsrc-2010Q3, I have problems with mkvtoolnix. First it seems to be very picky about LANG/LC settings. It does not like e.g. LANG=en_US.UTF-8.

But when all locale settings are removed, I still cannot run mkvmerge. It gets stuck at 0% when I'm muxing e.g. subs to an MKV file:

mkvmerge -o new.mkv Foo.mkv --sub-charset 0:ISO-8859-15 --language 0:swe --default-track 0:yes --compression 0:none 
mkvmerge v4.3.0 ('Escape from the Island') built on Sep 14 2010 20:33:34
'Foo.mkv': Using the Matroska demultiplexer.
'': Using the SRT subtitle reader.
'Foo.mkv' track 1: Using the MPEG-4 part 10 (AVC) video output module.
'Foo.mkv' track 2: Using the AC3 output module.
'' track 0: Using the text subtitle output module.
The file 'new.mkv' has been opened for writing.
Progress: 0%

Upgrade to pkgsrc-2010Q3 or pkgsrc-current. Install mkvtoolnix-4.3.0nb1. Run mkvmerge to e.g. mux in a subtitle track to a MKV file.

You did the last three updates, can you please take a look?

 5.0.0 is still broken (with libmatroska 1.3.0, libebml 1.2.2 and boost 1.47.0).

 It loops in libmatroska::KaxBlockGroup::GlobalTimecodeScale().

 What was the last version that worked for you?
