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.

I have Linux SuSE 9.3 Pro. I installed DVD::rip according to this http://www.exit1.org/dvdrip/doc/install.cipp guide. But instead of using the command # make install I tried to use the command # checkinstall. That didn't work. It was looking for some .tgz-file, which I understand is used under Linux Slackware. But I could run it from the install directory /usr/src/packages/SOURCES/DVD::rip/Video-DVDRip-0.52.6 after adding "." to the $PATH. So I ran it until I got problems transcoding. It didn't matter much which format I wanted to transcode it to. I tried divx4, divx5, xvid, xvid2, xvid3, xvid4, ffmpeg. I always got error messages. Sometimes it ran for a while 10 seconds or so. So I decided to try to install the packman .rpm, which required a newer version of rar. So I installed it then I tried to install the DVD::rip rpm. But it said there was a conflict with AcidRip /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/i586-linux-thread-multi/perllocal.pod. So instead I added packman as a new source of installation in (YaST2 the GUI version). That worked, there was no conflict when I checked the dependencies in (YaST2 the GUI version) and the package was installed. Then I started the program again. At first I wasn't root. But the I changed to root and had to reconfigure everything. In the global preferences section I didn't get any red error-messages. Even the CD-Rom burning commands was green. Below are the entries I changed:
dvd device: /dev/dvd
dvd mount point: /media/dvdrecorder
default data base directory: /mnt/hdb1/Filmer/DVD::rip/Databas-katalog
default directory for .rip project files: /mnt/hdb1/Filmer/DVD::rip/_rip-projekt-katalog
After saving them I went over to the other window and opened a new project, loaded the titles and chapters from the DVD, selected title 2 chapter 10 which was 3 minutes and 21 seconds long, selected swedish subtitles, xvid3 and tried to transcode. Transcode runs for a few seconds and then fails with an error message. Again it didn't matter mu which format I chose. avi (divx4, divx5, xvid, xvid2, xvid3, xvid4, ffmpeg), mpeg, ogg. It always exited with error messages after 1-10 seconds. Below is one of them:
