Last night after the meeting I downloaded Vortex Box 2.2.  I built a 
system from an old Pentium 4 with 3 DVD drives.  Following the 
instructions on the vortex box wiki, I managed to rip cds from each 
drive successfully.   Attempting to rip a DVD failed with the following 
message in the log file:

Checking http://www.makemkv.com, there is a MakeMKV v1.8.1 for Linux, but it appears you need to download and build from source.  Any suggestions?
