calibre-0.8.14 Linux ebook-convert cpu run/endless loop?

Also, the following ebook-convert incantation seems to take forever here:

$ cp /usr/share/man/man1/convert.1.bz2 ./

$ bzip2 -d convert.1.bz2

$ man2html convert.1

$ python2.7 /usr/bin/ebook-convert ./convert.html convert.mobi --language en --output-profile kindle_dx

Seems to stall/CPU run at "Applying case-transforming CSS...". Also a mess of errors. This is such a small man file (or html file after man2html), so likely a CPU run or endless loop somewhere.

(Also, --language option seems to be ignored, or I'm using the wrong option due to lack of documentation?)

... as I'm converting a few HTML man pages to MOBI, things seem to be moving along now after ebook-convert *finally* got past the convert.1 man page. For some reason, just a few HTML man pages are giving ebook-convert issues, one being convert.1. They're pretty small and only text. For some reason, ebook-convert might be doing something else besides text.

It's not in Gentoo Portage yet.

It takes Gentoo Bugs about 2 weeks to get an EBuild (package install script) into or updated into the package management tree. (Add +6 mos. for other binary distributions.) I think you wore them out with all of your snapshot releases, as Gentoo usually does have the latest and greatest whilst everybody else is stuck with 6+ mos. old binaries.

But, this is such a common task that any Linux folk should be able to reproduce. I'm seeing similar with the display.1 man file too. Seems like all of imagemagicks man files are doing this. (See the error "Failed to find image: ../images/annotate.png" wha?? we're in terminal and man files are text only! ...that I know of.)

ps ax doesn't show anything else but the "python ebook-convert" process. So it's probably pulling in a lib and doing something recursively somewhere. I'd hate to stop converting all man pages man1/ folder, just to switch on the verbose option for imagemagicks man pages. I'll probably stop it later this evening, once complete with man1 folder and switch on any debug options, if there are any. If I can reproduce, which I should, I can then run through strace, gdb, ... the full range of debuggers.

So if there is a later version of Calibre available even if it's not the latest, try that before posting bug reports on an older version.

Distribution versions of calibre aren't supported. You can follow the binary install instructions on this page to load the current version.

I'd like to help you with your error but I don't run linux and you haven't chose to express your error/trouble in terms I understand.

Good Luck.
