Exclamation AcidRip and associated progs PROBLEMS

I've been windoze free for about a week now. Finally got fed up with the unreliability and proprietary bs of ms. I want to backup my DVD's like I have been, but I can't get this to work for me. I finally got MPlayer up and running using the apt-get method, and while I didn't learn how to install it myself, it works. It also didn't install mencoder, so I got the rpm for that and installed it. I think I sucessfully installed GCC, as it didn't reportany errors to my knowledge. Red Hat update put in Perl. so now for Acidrip, I need to install gtk-perl. I got the same errors as others on this site with the 50 or so non-existant files/directories, tried the fixes, and still get a few errors while installing. libdvdread is in I think because I can watch dvd's with Mplayer. When I try and install lsdvd, it says nothing to do for all, and acidrip install gives me nothing but fits. I didn't expect this to be easy, but wow. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance

How I was able to get acidrip installed in Fedora Core 1 (should be much the same install for RH9).

From I installed their Yum that is linked to them.

With Yum from the command line I installed:

From Releases section I installed:

perl-Glib-1.021-1.fd1.i386.rpm (choose the .rh9 file for your distribution)
perl-Gtk2-1.023-1.fd1.i386.rpm (choose the .rh9 file for your distribution)

From I downloaded:


I used File Roller to uncompress these tar files.

From the command line
$ cd lsdvd-0.10
$ ./configure
$ make
$ su -m
# make install

From the command line
$ cd acidrip-0.11
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make
$ su -m
# make install

To get acidrip to run I had to link my dvd drive to /dev/dvd

ln -n /dev/hdd /dev/dvd (find your device and link it to /dev/dvd)

That should do it.
