Thread: Yet another thing that Linux cannot do.

  1. Yet another thing that Linux cannot do.

    Motion menus in DVD authoring.

    Save your lies, there is none.

    But here is how you'll respond.


    Typical Linux looney response.

    1. Use it under Wine (it doesn't work, save your lies to someone else).
    2. We don't need it.
    3. We have some goofy Perl script to do it.
    4. Some script kiddie reverse engineered some Windows package, it is
    called DVD Gigolo v0.000001 (Typical Linux package name) and to install
    it you'll have to install using this super friendly install procedure.

    tar xvzf dvd-gigolo-0.000001.tar.gz
    ../configure -- with my ass --with no clue.
    make
    make install

    To get tons of errors and then it doesn't run.

    You'll have to subscribe to mailing list full of obnoxious teenagers
    that will scream RTFOM TROLL READ THE MAN PAGES if you ask for help.


    4. We have it but I don't know what package is.
    5. Bill Gates is evil.
    6. Microsoft sucks.
    7.GNU/Linux is secure (obvious bull****).
    8. You're a troll, Whah! Whah! Whah! mommy I don't like what he says.

    Lol! I'll go for 2. I like watching movies, not menus.
    Oops. I was wrong, xine will support it in their upcoming releases with
    their old dvd plugin replaced by one that supports menus. No DVD Gigolo
    required. Mplayer may support them too, but I prefer xine and I can't be
    bothered checking.
    However without spending a few minutes looking through the "INSTALL" and
    "README" files for the dvdnav plugin for xine you can't get dvd menus
    yet. Wait half a year and this will be right there in a xine stable
    release. In another year it'll be in every distro.

    Please pardon my ignorance, but I don't even know what 'motion menus in
    dvd authoring' is - I must not have missed it.

    I suggest you read the article "DVD Authoring" in the December 2003 issue of
    the Linux Journal, page 50-58. In particular, section "Making Menus" on page
    52 would be a useful education for you.

    Windows = A 32 bit extension to a GUI shell to a 16 bit patch to an
    8 bit OS originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor and sold by a
    2 bit company that can't stand 1 bit of competition.
    LGX = A true 64 bit OS, running on HW from wrist-watch to mainframes.

    What's the word in the following sentence (taken unchanged from the OP) that
    demonstrates that you have no idea what you are on about?

    "Motion menus in DVD authoring"

    I'll give you a clue. It has an 'a' in it.
