Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been trying to install dvd::rip to a Fedora-5 box, but haven't been able to resolve the dependencies. I've tried several different download site, but all do the same thing.
The un-resolved dependencies look like this:
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::ExecFlow) is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::ExecFlow::Scheduler::SimpleMax) is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC::Server) is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory) >= 0.65 is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::ExecFlow) >= 0.62 is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC) >= 0.89 is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC::Logger) is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC::Client) is needed by package perl-Video-DVDRip
I've tried installing them with cpan, which seemed to work, but it didn't solve any of these errors. Any ideas? Thanks for the help,
Go to advanced search and enter ExecFlow, RPC and FormFactory for core 5. They seem to be on there, not sure about versions though, you'll just have to try and install and see.
Thanks for the advice, unfortunately, I got similar results. Each package I attempted to install gave me unsatisfied dependencies. I tried following the dependency tree, but eventually got to one that wasn't available.
But still, the really strange part is that CPAN thinks these are already installed. It's as if the FC-5 install routine doesn't know where to look for perl modules. From the CPAN program:
cpan> install Event::ExecFlow
Event::ExecFlow is up to date.
cpan> install Event::ExecFlow::Scheduler::SimpleMax
Event::ExecFlow::Scheduler::SimpleMax is up to date.
cpan> install Event::RPC::Server
Event::RPC::Server is up to date.
When I started CPAN I used the default configuration. Should I change something on it. Thanks for the advice,

You could try installing from source, I've often resorted to this to overcome dependency problems. When running ./configure the exact missing files are listed if an error is reported. Put these missing files into pbone search, and it will find the package required. But you have said that you think all the needed packages are installed, so it sould compile ok. When installing from source the needed files are looked for rather than just compared against a dependency list as with rpms. Just make sure you have the development rpms installed.
