    Also, Dag Wieers' site has older (but usable) versions in RHEL/CentOS rpm format: DAG: dvdbackup RPM packages for Red Hat, CentOS and Fedora
    Hello again,

    Thank you for your patience.

    I have extracted the tar.bz2 but sad to say, I don't know how to proceed. Here is my output.

    First, cd to the directory dvdbackup-0.4.1. Then run the command "./configure". If that completes without errors, then run the command "make". Finally, assuming make completes without errors (warnings are ok), then run the command "sudo make install".
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Hello Rubberman,

    ./configure seemed to work fine although it gave ma an error towards the end. I tried to yum install but it said I already have it installed. Was not also quite successful with the rest of the commands.

    The make command won't work until configure succeeds. My guess is that dvdbackup-0.4.1 requires a newer version of libdvdread than is available in your repository. This is not an uncommon problem, unfortunately, and at times the number of dependencies in your system on the out-of-date component are such that replacing it is not feasible. There are ways to work around this, such as downloading the updated dependent module (libdvdread) source from the web and installing it in /usr/local which you can tell configure about, but that doesn't always work without some gnashing of teeth. So, have you tried to download and install the rpm file from Dag Wieers site first? As I said, it is an older version of dvdbackup, but it seems to work pretty well. I've never had any problems rip'ing working copies of commercial DVD's with it.

    DAG: dvdbackup RPM packages for Red Hat, CentOS and Fedora

    DAG: rpmforge-release RPM packages for Red Hat, CentOS and Fedora

    Hi,

    I just looked into the two sites above but was not able to identify which to download. I can't seem to see any mention of Fedora 10 which I am using. Hope you can enlighten

    There are also no entries on the site for RHEL/CentOS 4 or 5, so I used el3 instead. So, try installing the fc3 i386 or x86_64 version (32bit or 64bit) instead. If that doesn't work, then he has the source rpm for it which should be buildable on your system.

    libdvdread-devel

    nujinini,

    I ran into the same error message using Fedora 12.

    Make sure both of these are installed:
    libdvdread
    libdvdread-devel

    #yum install libdvdread libdvdread-devel
