How can I rip DVDs?

I've tried two programs, Kmediagrab and dvd::rip, but have had problems with both. I'm using Fedora C5 64-bit. Can anyone help me get these running, or else recommend me something to rip my DVDs with?

Dvd::rip for example looks good, but I noticed a total absence of any help files with it! I did feel a little lost (haven't tried this before)

DVD::RIP installed ok, but when I tried to use it, I got this error:

Error compiling lsdvd output: syntax error at (eval 86) line 211, at EOF
So I fiddled around with a few options and tried to get it to workaround the problem, and got this error instead:

Job 'Reading TOC' failed.

Executed command: dvdrip-exec lsdvd -a -n -c -s -v -Op /dev/dvd 2>/dev/null && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS

Last output was:

sh: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Any ideas?

configured fine, but when I tried "make":

make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/kmediagrab-0.3'
Making all in kmediagrab
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/kmediagrab-0.3/kmediagrab'

I managed to get kmediagrab working ok on suse 10 32bit, and I've checked as tO "": I do have both the libidn and libidn-devel packages installed. Is there something in older versions of libidn that there isn't in newer versions that is needed for this to run?

# yum install perl-Video-dvdrip
Nice and easy - I've *always* had problems with DVD::RIP from source on Fedora

I don;t have the internet at home: can't use yum.

Anyone any ideas whats wrong with these programs specifically? Or is it just Fedora being Feodora?
I will try acid rip though.
