The clock


This is the most frustrating thing. I'm installing some stuff from source that I need for ripping DVD's. First I install libdvdread, then libdvdcss, then vobcopy, but vobcopy doesn't find libdvdread. So I scratch that idea and go over to my other computer to try acidrip. Acidrip needs libdvdread(which I figure I'll have problems with later, but oh well) and lsdvd. I try to perl Makefile.PL(as per the install instructions), but it says that it needs lsdvd... so I switch to my lsdvd directory and type ./configure(as per install instructions) and it says "configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files! Check your system clock. What the heck? Check my clock... how? The time is right, how the heck else am I supposed to check it?

Ummm ... the time might be right,
what about the date?
Code:
date
will tell you time and date ... chances
are that if you extract files and their
timestamp is current, you fall over if
what is generated by the compilation
appears to be older than the source.

Cheers,
Tink

If it's a different problem I'd suggest starting
a new thread rather than hi-jacking someone
elses :}

Cheers,
Tink
