But did you get the program to actually rip stuff or just run in WINE?
I found a resource for acidrip that includes a walkthrough on how to install it, the dependencies, and a link to the download. I didn't try installing it from the website because urpmi installs it just fine... but I'm hoping it will help you out. And here it is. Good luck!
No, I have no passion or feelings on the matter whatsoever, to be totally honest with you. But what I do think is that you want Suse to act like Mandriva, whether you realize it or not. My question is and has been simply, "if you want Suse to act like Mandriva, why not just use Mandriva?" I have no personal desire to see you use any particular distro for my own agenda, you're the one who will be using it, and I've already chosen my OSes.

...some more propaganda
Unfortunately the HOWTO link on that page is down!
That would be too easy :x: No it didn't work!
I've read about other Window's based DVD rippers working in WINE though. Theres still hope!
I think i've found the answer :jump2:
I've managed to install a program called DVD Rip-O-Matic, which is a native Linux program. So far it's working - fingers crossed I will have an AVI file at the end of it
I've also got Dr DivX to work in WINE
I've attached screenshots of Dr DivX and RIP-O-Matic
It works, it works!
Just as well because I was getting nowhere with DVD::RIP and AcidRIP. Most of the dependencies centred around PERL. I've checked and checked again - Perl is installed already!
Good job, glad you got it going.
[ot]By the way, if you find some good, stable & well-tested repos for Suse, definately start a thread about it and I'll sticky it... hmm, not a bad idea. I may just start a distribution repository thread.[/ot]
That would be really useful :good:
I am only using the repositories listed in that link you gave me. If I find any more, i'll post them on the forums [/ot]
Interestingly, there was a fix for the PERL problems i was experiencing in SuSE, on the SuSE online update program!
In a twist of fate, i've actually managed to get DVD::RIP installed and working I am currently ripping a DVD as I type this so i'll have to wait and see if it's as good as DVD RipOMatic. The only problem with RipOMatic is it's just a little slow to rip.
As for AcidRIP, I can't find a suitable RPM for SUSE. I wanted to compile the program but their homepage is down. I can't seem to access it. Anyhow, I got hold of the source code from Sourceforge but there are no instructions! I've got as far as typing perl Makefile.PL but I don't know what to do from there!
Maybe you should try XDVD Shrink?
I might check it out, cheers!
As I said though, there is nothing wrong with RipOMatic apart from it's slighty slow speed. It's very polished and easy to use, if a little lacking in options/functionality.
I've come to the conclusion that DVD::RIP is crap. Sure it's pretty powerful and the ripping process is fast. But the encoding is very slow and overall it didn't justify a place in my K menu!
When Anti-Trend awakes from his sleep (where are you AT? ) i'm sure he can tell me how to compile AcidRIP
I use DVDVideoMedia Free DVD Ripper, It is free, and work fine
personally i've never used it for ripping, but have you tried k3b ?
also try seaching for something like [google]dvd ripping wiki[/google]
BTW: as for suse repos try adding repos from OpenSuse, just type [google]suse repo[/google]
