installing dvd::rip problem


i want to encode dvds to divx. i used gordian knot in windows and would like a similar app in linux.
dvd::rip seemed like the best choice.
it requires:

-- dvd::rip

--needs
--transcode

--needs
ImageMagick
quicktime for linux
--needs
libmpeg3,
libdv
mjpegtools

i can install transcode without quicktime for linux. but i couldnt install dvd:rip for some reason.
there is a problem when installing quicktime for linux.
i put the libmpeg3 in the same dir as the quicktime is(as recomended in teh istructions)
i get 12 errors on make ;

qtmp3.c:545: `codec' undeclared (first use in this function)
qtmp3.c: In function `quicktime_init_codec_mp3':
qtmp3.c:564: `codec' undeclared (first use in this function)
make: *** [i686/qtmp3.o] Error 1

---during teh configure i got these errors

./configure: line 68: cd: quicktime/ffmpeg*: No such file or directory

---so i googled i found this recomendation

export CFLAGS="-I ../../video/quicktime4linux-2.0.4/lame-3.93.1/include/ -I../../video/libmpeg3-1.5.4/"

--it seemed as though quicktime couldnt find teh ffpeg or lam dirs which are in the quicktime directory. after that i get no configure errors. but on make install i new get

[root] quicktime4linux-2.0.4]# make install
expr: syntax error
cp i686/qtdump i686/make_streamable i686/qtinfo i686/dechunk i686/yuv4toyuv i686/recover i686/rechunk /usr/bin
cp: cannot stat `i686/qtdump': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `i686/make_streamable': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `i686/qtinfo': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `i686/dechunk': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `i686/yuv4toyuv': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `i686/recover': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `i686/rechunk': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1


ive spent about 4 hours on this. i would like to get it working.
is there a good guide for this? or is there away to get around/fix this quicktime for linux install?

thank you.

this isn't a particuarly noble thing to do, but i write another dvd ripper... http://acidrip.sf.net you might prefer it, and it won't insist on quicktime or transcode, just MPLayer and onther app i write, lsdvd

You do not need quicktime to make divx files. You just need ffmpeg installed. ffmpeg will make divx files that can read by any system that has the divx codec. You may want to try out xvid. Its a lot better codec than divx. If you want mp3 for the audio track, you have to compile lame.

Go to the following link, and download the DVD::RIP MEGA PACK. This is a very large collection of all the dependendcy packages needed to succesffully install DVD::RIP on slackware 10. Believe me, this will help....it took me ages to find this. Just extract the file, and install the individual packages using the installpkg command.

let me know if I helped you out.

just incase ill add this link which is a more direct link
DVD::RIP MEGA PACK

thanks. your right. i misread and confused the docs i have read
i confused libquitime with quicktime4linux
i have now read that the later is incompatable with ffmpeg.

the reason i could not compile libdv, or transcode was because i had forgoten taht i set an envirmental variable used in ./configure.
i had set it to point to quicktime4linux for some libs.

this is now solved and i have dvd:rip installed. i had to install gtk-perl as explained on the website of dvd:rip
-----------now the problem i face is that i have vobs already on my hd which i would like to encode. dvd::rip gave me an error.

Sun Nov 14 23:28:36 2004 Starting job (1): Determine number of titles
Sun Nov 14 23:28:36 2004 Executing command: dr_exec tcprobe -H 10 -i /mnt/rebel-dat/dvd && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS

libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.
[tcprobe] unknown file type
[tcprobe] filetype/codec not yet supported by 'transcode'


----------i have the dvdread and dvdcss in these locatations. i built from source.

/usr/local/lib/libdvdread.so.3.0.0
/usr/local/lib/libdvdread.so.3
/usr/local/lib/libdvdread.so
/usr/local/lib/libdvdread.la

/usr/local/lib/libdvdcss.a
/usr/local/lib/libdvdcss.so.0.0.3
/usr/local/lib/libdvdcss.so
/usr/local/lib/libdvdcss.so.0

video dvdrip cannot make a divx from the same files that gordian knot can. you can't just have the titles from a dvd. you need the whole dvd or let dvdrip do the ripping. it sucks, but that's the way it is. dvdrip can handle the backups made by dvdbackup.
