    MakeMKV does not work well. more then 50% of the problems we had with VortexBox in the past were MakeMKV related. It actually never really worked right. Better to run MakeMKV on your computer the GUI version is much better.

    Before GA, hopefully you can look at MakeMKV, per:
    https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/supp...e-ripping-dvds

    Thanks for all the work to keep this alive and well!
    I'd be happy to pay a lifetime support fee like Bliss, MakeMKV or Plex.

    We are hopeing you want have to. At the moment the GA is very close to the release. We are just looking for final bugs.

    • Ran dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=25
    • Ran dnf system-upgrade reboot
    • Ran dnf -y update
    System name: vortexbox
    VortexBox SW Version: 2.5
    Linux OS Version: Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five)

    Dell Optiplex 7010 i5-3.2Ghz 4GB


    I removed my USB Backup drive for the update but left these "untouched"
    • 256GB SSD WD Boot Drive
    • 8TB WD /STORAGE Drive
    Thank you, thank you !!!
    I too was able to upgrade using these commands with the same result, although I don't use Bliss. I did need to start LMS at the CLI using ...
    Code:
     
     systemctl start squeezeboxserver

    This is wonderful news, I was really worried Vortexbox was dead! Somehow I cobbled together the Fedora upgrade to 25 but obviously not official. Thank you for this release!

    edited to add: when I look at my vortexbox launch page, I see that it already says VortexBox SW Version: 2.5 and Linux OS Version: Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five), so maybe my cobble from some time back has gotten me most of the way there. My continued thanks!

    Tried the ova file of the beta version in virtualbox. Installed Plex and added some music by accessing the vortexbox with dolphin networking and everything seems to work well.
    Hope the final version works as well.
