acidrip is driving me crazy


Quote:
root@diabolus:/usr/local/src/acidrip-0.12# perl Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Warning: prerequisite Glib 1 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Gtk2 1 not found.
Writing Makefile for AcidRip

Running additional test to be sure acidrip will work
test for lsdvd: found
test for MPlayer: found
test for MEncoder: found
test for MP3 support in mencoder: Not Found!

***************
MEncoder was found, however it does not have MP3 support built into it.
If you DO want MP3 support you'll need to recompile mplayer with mp3 support
See INSTALL or INSTALL.html for more information
***************


Ok, I am running Slackware 9.1 and i have glib and gtk installed.... why is it not finding it? This is very frustrating. I can't seem to get any DVD ripping software to work. Any help would be appreciated.

it is looking for the perl bindings, not just the c libraries http://gtk2-perl.sf.net

Also you might want to install lame, for some mp3 support since it did not fine it according to your error: "test for MP3 support in mencoder: Not Found!"

Tip: Its best to install lame first and any codecs for mplayer, then compile mplayer, gtk2, etc. Install acidrip last right after you install lsdvd.

You can look at my howto at www.jabentley.com/docs/acidrip-howto.html its outdated but gonna get updated soon which gives the same basic steps to get it working.

Cheers.

Ok... thanks for the ideas guys...

I rolled-back MPlayer, installed lame, and reconfigured... here is what i have so far... do i need to specify anything other than "--with-gui"?

note : i have libdvdread installed, yet MPlayer has it disabled... i've been able to watch DVD's with this configuration before, so i'm not sure if it's a problem.

I'm installing all this Perl stuff now, although i had installed the perl packages with the Slackware install.... and i also attempted to install Gtk-Perl-0.7008, but aparently that's not what i needed....

btw, what's with all the perl stuff? It used to be the only problems i had with compiling programs with slack was not having GTK or QT libraries, because i use neither normally. It seems that when it comes to DVDs and linux.. everything revolves around perl. ?

Just a FYI, you only need the Glib and Gtk2 packages from that list from the link acid gave you. I do think there were like 2 packages you do need to install for Glib though, can't remember off top of my head though, read thru the README's or INSTALL files to be for sure for it.

Yeah the old version of Perl::Gtk is for just Gtk and not Gtk2 which acidrip is now developed for. That's why it won't detect it, doesn't need it.

Oh and to enable the GUI, its not --with-gui that I know of, its --enable-gui

Other than that, if you have all the codecs you want, skins, fonts, etc, and they're all in the correct directories, mplayer should find these.

If you installed libdvdread, make sure after updating, you run ldconfig to update your shared links. By default I find it best to create links from /usr/lib to the lib's in /usr/local/lib where most are installed by default. This is really only the case when using Slackware for some reason that I've encountered, even after adding /usr/local/lib to my ld.so.conf file in /etc.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Thanks a lot!

I installed lame, as per your suggestions.

Next, I uninstalled and re-compiled / installed [B]MPlayer[B]

As far as the perl bindings (which i downloaded here: http://gtk2-perl.sf.net/ ) I had to install in this order:

perl-ExtUtils-PkgConfig
perl-Glib
perl-Gtk2

Then, i compiled AcidRip and it worked great! Woo hoo!

Now, all i have to do is install this new hard drive to hold the gigs of data I'll be ripping and completely rebuild my kernel for SCSI support so I can burn the stuff that I rip, reinstall ALSA and nVidia modules, and I'll be set

honestly, acidrip gave me a lot of problems. Just use the mencoder commandline, it does the same thing as acidrip, only no hastle of getting it to work.
You can rip it, split it, and everything.

Thanks I'll try that. Now that I've finally gotten it to work, Acidrip is still giving me hell about splitting.
