thank you for your help.  and i agree; this would be better if they kept 
the patch in libdvdread until someone either updates dvdbackup or 
creates a new program that will have the same functionality as 
dvdbackup.  was this patch adversley affecting libdvdread?

i am quite surprised that those of us in the linux community have only 
dvdbackup to truly rip a dvd for copy to a blank dvd.  dvd::rip is a 
great program, but you can't re-burn to another dvd!  windows has 
several programs that will do what dvdbackup [did|does] for linux.

is there anyone out there that would be willing to update/maintain 
dvdbackup as it seems that the current designer/maintainer has not done 
anything with the program in over 3 years?
