compile instructions

Asked by Matyas

I thought I would build dvdbackup with -g and poke around why the -i option does not work.

I got up to running the configure script. It fails with:
checking for DVDOpen in -ldvdread... no
configure: error: You need libdvdread

I have the libdvdread4 debian package installed (which replaces the libdvdread package). What does dvdbackup exactly need here?

There is a REAMDE.vcs file included. Is that supposed to be README.vcs or REAMED.vcs?

Benjamin Drung (bdrung) said :

You need to install the development package of libdvdread: libdvdread-dev. You could install all build dependencies for dvdbackup on Debian/Ubuntu by simply running "sudo apt-get build-dep dvdbackup".

I fixed the typo for the readme file in revision 98: The file should be called README.vcs (readme for the version control system checkout).

Can you help with this problem?
