Capable of ripping 'enhanced CDs' as well? I've heard of k9copy, but I was wondering if anyone else had something nice that they liked. What's popular in this area?

I use k9 copy for making dvd5s although there is also the gnome app dvd95. You can also check out Devedee which has some nice features.

The one and only app I run with wine. dvd shrink

K9copy works fine but on my system it is much slower than dvdshrink. Actually I make an iso with k3b and then shrink the iso with dvdshrink.

Avidemux2 is a great program. But all it does is convert formats and sizes. It can pull a vob off of a disk and convert it to a .h264 (or whatever) but it will not pull menus and stuff.

It might help if you tell us what you mean by rip.

1. Make a backup copy of the disk.

2. Pull the video off the disk just to be played on the computer.

Rip gets used for both, but they are really two different things.

I think (it has been a while) that dvdrip just automates the process of getting the video to the hard drive (sort of automated avidemux).

My understanding is that DVDrip is pretty good. http://www.exit1.org/dvdrip/ (it is in the yum repos)
