Hi,

I've been re-ripping my CDs to FLAC using Grip but noticed yesterday some very strange behaviour. The files are 'disappearing'. By way of example I ripped a CD yesterday...

Code:

$ date
Wed 10 Jun 08:57:32 BST 2015
$ ls -lha two\ lone\ swordsmen/stay\ down/*.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 16M Jun 10 08:04 two lone swordsmen/stay down/01 hope we never surface.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 20M Jun 10 08:06 two lone swordsmen/stay down/02 ink cloud.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 18M Jun 10 08:08 two lone swordsmen/stay down/03 the big clapper.flac

-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 25M Jun 10 08:10 two lone swordsmen/stay down/05 we change the frequency.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 37M Jun 10 08:13 two lone swordsmen/stay down/06 no red stopping.flac

-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 22M Jun 10 08:15 two lone swordsmen/stay down/08 mr pariss monsters.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 20M Jun 10 08:17 two lone swordsmen/stay down/09 light the last flare.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 12M Jun 10 08:17 two lone swordsmen/stay down/10 we discordians must stick apart.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 23M Jun 10 08:18 two lone swordsmen/stay down/11 alpha school.flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 neil neil 39M Jun 10 08:20 two lone swordsmen/stay down/12 as worldly pleasures wave goodbye.flac


I share my music directory with others who have an account on my computer and to ensure they have permissions did a 'chown -R neil:users *' and hibernated my computer overnight. Today the file sizes have shrunk drastically...

Code:

$ date
Thu 11 Jun 10:05:23 BST 2015

I started looking at alternatives to Grip (its seen no development/changes in ages anyway and home pages no longer have documentation) and came across media-sound/asunder and have given it a whirl. However, despite setting in preferences to rip music to ~/music/albums/ the directory and files are not there after ripping has completed, in fact I can't find them anywhere on my system. Tried turning on logging, by ticking the selection for logging to /var/log/asunder.log but thats not created (possibly a permissions problem due to running as non-root user perhaps?). Similarly with ripperX files are not created where I specify them to be.

If I didn't have this strange problem with Grip I wouldn't be looking at alternatives. Any ideas on how to fix Grip or configure asunder to do what it purports to be doing would be appreciated.

Cheers,

When you first rip with Grip, are the files OK? Do they play for you? And are you letting Grip finish the encoding before moving them elsewhere (if you move them elsewhere)?

And then after hibernate they shrink, is that right?

It might not be related to Grip at all. Two possibilities I can think of is, file system corruption possibly triggered by a buggy hibernating kernel; and inadvertent file changes by player apps trying to be "helpful".

To eliminate the possibility of any apps altering my music behind my back (whether accidentally by a mis-click, or due to bugs), I use a separate user, music, which owns the music files. And set them readable but not writeable to everyone else (including the directories).

As far as kernels, I recall seeing blurbs hinting at some issues with ext4 corruption on version 4.0.{1..4}, when used with RAID (and maybe also SSD), but I cannot vouch personally about this.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Beyond checking the filesize I've done nothing else to the files, not moved them, nor tried playing them, but I do wait until Grip has finished before checking the sizes.

It was actually bought to my attention first without hibernation coming into the equation, but so far on attempts to replicate it I've only seen it happening after hibernations, but I'm not sure its definitely a factor.

Great, I'll look into that as an option and see if it makes a difference. The only music player I use on the system is mpd, although recently I've started exporting the directory and mounting over NFS on a dedicated Raspberry Pi which then acts as a streaming device allowing me to play all my music from my PC on the system in my living room. This might be causing problems, although its been fine for a month or so and this problem only started occurring in the last few days, but thanks for the suggestion I'll look into it and see if thats messing anything up.

I do have the partition as ext4 on RAID1 SATA, but am still on 3.14.* as I've not had the time to upgrade to 4.* (first kernel compilation broke some other stuff and too busy to sit down and fix it all yet).

Thanks for your suggetions and pointers, it gives me something to start looking into as I was stumped.

Minor update, but I think I've narrowed down the cause of this problem and its completely stumped me.

It appears to be something with Grip itself since after ripping a CD the files are listed fine....

Code:

$ ls -lha

But I wanted to swap discs, so I tried ejecting it using the button on the front on the drive, but it wouldn't eject, so I tried the Grip 'Eject' button instead and it obligingly ejected the disc, but it took a little thinking and because of this problem I had a terminal open and 'ls -l' the directory as it ejected and to my amazement I saw the file sizes shrink. Note the first one caught the first flac being resized with an unusual extension to the filename...

That is very odd.

Try this: Start grip from the command line in an xterm. Then rip a CD as before, but don't eject. When grip reports finished, go to a root window, and change the owner of the just-ripped files to something other than yourself (the music user, if you have made one, or just 'root' itself). Then eject. What happens? Any diagnostics get printed in the xterm where grip was started? Do the files remain OK, and do they play correctly. Also, try running soxi on them: are they really flacs?

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to help me with this.

As suggested went to a root window, as ripped...

Nothing in the terminal Grip was launched from other than the usual complaint about the theme I use...

Code:

$ grip
/usr/share/themes/MurrinaEalm/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:47: Murrine configuration option "scrollbar_color" is no longer supported and will be ignored.



Before ejecting I used soxi to check the files and they appear to be FLAC

So that I don't have to rip them again I moved the files out of this directory, then ejected using Grip's button, it didn't do this immediately and the drive light was on, checking Grip it had started ripping them again, hit the eject button on the drive and after about 30 seconds it then ejected the CD and re-wrote the small files...

Checking back at the terminal Grip was launched from there are now some errors reported...

Code:

004: Unable to read table of contents header
004: Unable to read table of contents header

But what that means, why its causing this strange problem (if it is at all related) and how to sort it I've no idea.

Checking the 2.2K files with soxi and they're not FLAC...

Code:

# soxi *.flac

Input File     : '01 spiderman theme.flac'

Sample Rate    : 44100

Sample Encoding: 16-bit FLAC

soxi FAIL formats: can't open input file `10 kaleido scope.flac': FLAC ERROR whilst decoding metadata
soxi FAIL formats: can't open input file `11 atlantis coastguard corruption.flac': FLAC ERROR whilst decoding metadata


...although the first one appears to have been re-ripped prior to the disc ejecting.

I can move the files back in from the higher-level directory and they're still reported as FLAC by soxi (output omitted) and they play fine.

Very, very strange.

That's all very strange. Sounds like a bug in grip.

Changing the file ownership after ripping (without moving them) might be enough to let you limp along for now.

I'm reaching the same conclusion too. Strange since it worked fine and Grip wasn't updated (project seems to have stagnated for some time, but then theres not much else required for a CD ripper).

For now I just kill grip from the command line which seems to leave the FLACs in tact.

Thanks for your time and assistance, appreciated.

Just an off-chance thing: did you try re-emerging grip? Maybe one of the libraries had changed out from under it and left it confused? revdep-rebuild should normally find such things, but, perhaps a manual emerge -1 might help?

Sorry should have said I'd already tried rebuilding Grip with a one-off re-emerge.

I sync and update pretty much daily and after its completed do a 'dispatch-conf' followed by 'emerge --depclean && revdep-rebuild' so would hope that would have caught most things anyway.

I'll file a bug report so its logged and see if anyone else has similar problems or can replicate and solve it.

Thanks again for your help.

This has now mysteriously resolved itself, not sure what helped, but have gone from sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.14.44 to sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.14.46.
