Tip about how to rip DVD's in linux
A very good program for this is DVD::RIP.
dvd::rip is a full featured DVD copy program written in Perl. It provides an easy to use but feature-rich Gtk+ GUI to control almost all aspects of the ripping and transcoding process. It uses the widely known video processing swissknife transcode and many other Open Source tools. dvd::rip itself is licensed under GPL / Perl Artistic License.
Debian packages is availible atCode:
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main
After you've installed the program and all it's dependencies you've likely going to get trouble with encoding. A message about that 'export_divx4.so' is missing. Don't worry!
Just make a symbolic link named export_divx4.so pointing to export_divx5.so.
Step-by-step: (you have to have root access )
cd /usr/lib/transcode/ ln -s export_divx5.so export_divx4.so
I hope that someone will find this useful

I've tried DVD :: RIP but I cant seem to figure out how to make a DVD to DVD copy.
It seems to rip the files to <name_u_give>.vob. Do I just burn these on to a DVD? What folder structure would I have to follow for the DVD??
I haven't checked the file sizes but I do believe they were bigger than 4.7 GB. Is there any way to have the program reduce the file sizes so that they fit??
