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.

using the patch without an aspect ratio switch worked nicely with one movie. it didn't work with the second i tried, so i'm trying to do things manually to see what went wrong. i was able to encode the audio, then i tried this:
and my hard drive filled up with a >17GB stream.yuv file. i'm guessing that tovid pipes stream.yuv to the next command to prevent this from happening, but i couldn't figure out how to do it. here's what i tried:
I'm having the same problem with the tovidgui, and I have an identical system to what you reported. Mandriva LE 2005, same Python and wxPythonGTK packages installed. I was running zlib 1.2.2 and zlib-devel 1.2.2, but updated to zlib and zlib-devel to 1.2.3 when I got this error with no change. tovidgui.py loads, very briefly spawns a blank window, then dumps the exact same info you've reported to the console I started it from.
CLI works great on my system. Excellent tool.
Originally posted by sjaglin Hi there,
New to Linux (2 months!!) so usual apologies from newbies. I have looked through the questions and can't find a thread about my problem so here it is:
I run tovid as a command line and it is a marvel. I love it! I just wish someone would design a nice Icon cause I use another icon and it doesn t feel the same...
When I try to run tovidgui I get :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./tovidgui.py", line 3513, in ?
frame = MainFrame(None, wxID_ANY, "tovidGUI")
File "./tovidgui.py", line 3384, in __init__
self.panDiscLayout = DiscLayoutPanel( self, wxID_ANY )
File "./tovidgui.py", line 2514, in __init__
self.idxIconMenu = self.listIcons.Add( GetMenuIcon() )
File "./tovidgui.py", line 122, in GetMenuIcon
iconMenu = zlib.decompress(
zlib.error: Error -3 while decompressing data: invalid window size
and it crashes without starting. I run Mandriva LE2005, python-2.4-5mdk,wxPythonGTK-126.96.36.199-3mdk. I don t know what to try next.
A little audio problem I have:
I hear no sound when playing a final mpeg I created by using tovid version 0.22 on Ubuntu. I managed to extract a wav file from the original avi file and its playing fine but no sound on the final mpg.
