    nOOb -- compiling dvdx


    k, i'd like to compile dvdx for use on a RHEL5 system. I've read some sticky posts, and browsed and search, but not finding what i need.

    I have a functional understanding of how to type make and press enter. However, there is no makefile within the tar that i got off sourceforge. Sure, well it makes sense that there's no makefile, coz it needs to be tailored to my system -- so i should evoke ./configure. However, there is no configure script with the source either.

    What am i not understanding?

    Sounds odd; are there any other scripts included in there?

    Thanks fingal,

    Um, no, no scripts. There is a Readme_1st.txt, but it's more about features than enything else.

    It's odd, there is a stdafx.h and cpp in there -- which makes me think it's windows-ish source -- but i have no idea if that really means much.

    Should i just look for a tar that contains a configure script?
