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.

ok i own several kids DVDs and i want them to last longer (keep them away from the kids) so i build a debain-sarge distro media box. i run s-vid out to my TV and can play DVDs, or movie files from the LAN or HD.
i want to use dvd::rip to copy all of my DVDs to my HD so i can still access the movies, but keep the DVDs out of kids reach.
i was successful at burning my first copy of Shrek, but it did it in chapter mode. i dont want chapters. id like to have a few VOB files say no larger then 1.5G ea.
sadly that requires mplayer. mplayer, kde, debian, do not play nice together. last time i attempted to get them to work, mplayer uninstalled a handful of libs for kde, then when i reinstalled kde it uninstalled mplayer completly so no mplayer for me.
i use kaffeine and like it. it just plane works with no fuss or hassle unlike mplayer.
Originally posted by shanenin just guessing, the error code is probably to do with the video codec you are using(that has caused errors for me in the past). try xvid or ffmpeg. You can find your errors on the logging tab.
ok ill take a peek at that in a short bit. odds are it was something to do with a codec.
thanks, but ill pass. i finnaly have my media box up and working, and if you saw the nightmare i went though thanks to mplayer you would understand my hesitation to touch it with anything shorter then a 10ft pole.
