a few things i haven't gotten to work lately...
first of all, i've been trying to install some apps and they always stop right after i've completed the "./configure" command and it finishes. drivel (an lj client) , and a few other apps including xmule just won't work. i'm installing them in root.
also, i've got a tv card (ati tv wonder ve, that it'd like to run in linux, it currently works on my windows xp partition, which i'd like to get rid of...
and, the last thing: cd-ripping. i've used grip in the past (under fedora core 1) and it's worked fine, but now, for some reason it won't recognize any cd that's in my drive.
i'm running mandrake 9.2, with gnome 2.4. my tv card, as i said above is an ati tv wonder ve (pci) card. my cd drives are a lite-on 48x24x48 cd-rw drive and an lg 16x dvd-rom drive.
i'm pretty new to linux and i'm just now learning to program... i had a little c++ in the past but that was back in highschool and we didn't do much.
thanks for any help you can give.
