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.

With libdvdcss and the other dvd libs and everything, the audio and video doesn't sync up while playing DVD's in Kaffeine. It's happened with multiple DVD's while using the Xine engine, but they work fine in mplayer. I've researched it quite a bit, and discovered that it's most likely an issue with the Xine-lib due to dropped video frames.
With my repositories configured, lib64xine1-1.1.2-4plf2007.0 is the xine engine that I have installed. There aren't any other xine-lib packages for my distro/arch (that I have found). I downloaded and compiled xine and it installed into '/usr/local/lib/xine/plugins/1.1.2/post'.
It would be great to just remove the packaged xine and use the compiled version, but there are too many other programs (like amarok and freevo) that depend on that package being installed.
I configured kaffeine with './configure --with-extra-libs=/usr/local/lib/xine/plugins/1.1.2/post'. With this compiled version of kaffeine player installed I still get the same out-of-sync issues.
Is there a way to compile (or configure an existing installation of) kaffeine to use my new compiled xine engine? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Also - I've found some posts about needing libxine-devel to properly compile Kaffeine. Is that part the xine that I compiled?
