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.

oh cool. never saw that... i found that i was beign a bit daft on my default settings, if you were to force the default width to a smaller number e.g. 480 from -1 then it will encode much faster, with better quality in some respects.
Hello, acid want to thank you for your effort it is worth more than try and forget it I just ripped my first officially bought DVD "Ice Age" and the ripped avi works like a charm,(frankly enough I don't have a stand alone DVD-player just a DVD-ROM in my computer, oh wait I do - PlayStation2 is an excellent DVD-player). I tried earlier to compile Gtk::Perl but due to me upgrading to gnome2 which needs gdk2 and gdk2 doesn't provide gdkimlib I was out of luck trying acidrip, now when I revert back to gnome 1.4 and gkd and gtk prior version 2 I was able to compile Gtk::Perl and acidrip, sure I could use mencoder by itself but it ain't fun
acid, I'm having a little problem with acidrip. In a console I can type acidrip and it will start up and work fine, but if I make it run in the background with acidrip &, when I click on Load DVD it freezes. Im running RH 8.0, ask if you want to know anymore system info.
hmm, well lsdvd was hanging first time, and i killed it. it's worked perfectly ever since... try running lsdvd from a command line.. maybe it's a problem in there now... not touched t for a while though really...
Originally posted by acid_kewpie and there's you saying it worked fine....! hmm, i'll look into it... thanks.
What do you mean.. it does work fine. I don't run mine from a command line opting to put it in the background.. I got me a launcher from my panel.... with a generic icon for it.. I'll see what I can't come up with for the logo..
and I noticed in one of the earlier posts in this thread that using the frameno codec is used in multi pass encodes, so if I was to do a 1st pass with frameno how would I go about doing a second final pass
