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.
quicktime for linux
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
--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

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?
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.
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.

sorry for all the posts just read animehair's post.
this is on my redhat 9 machine, not my slackware. i dont think i can in stall slack packages on redhat. but i will put them on my slack-laptop if i can get this to work on rh first.

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.
