HOWTO: lsdvd
Description: Prints out the contents of a DVD

NOTE: I use GNU tar >= 1.13.25 so it's -j for .tar.bz2 files,
it's safe to assume that make, gcc, binutils, fileutils/coreutils, gawk, sed, and grep are prerequisites for almost everything

# lsdvd 0.16
# ==========
# Prerequisites:
# libdvdread

# Clean up leftovers from the acidrip howto:
test -d src/acidrip &&
 find src/acidrip -type d -maxdepth 1 -name "lsdvd-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
test -d installed/acidrip && rm -f installed/acidrip/lsdvd-*

test -f installed/lsdvd-0.16.tar.gz &&
 mv installed/lsdvd-0.16.tar.gz .
test ! -f lsdvd-0.16.tar.gz &&
mkdir -p -m 0700 src
cd src
find -type d -maxdepth 1 -name "lsdvd-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
tar xzvf ~/lsdvd-0.16.tar.gz
cd lsdvd-0.16
test $UID = 0 && chown -R root:root .

# Patch it to allow the configure test to work with libdvdread 0.9.7:
wget -nc &&
 patch -p1 < lsdvd-0.16.patch
autoreconf -f -i

su -c "make install"
rm -f installed/lsdvd-*.tar.*
mv lsdvd-0.16.tar.gz installed/

# If you ever want to uninstall lsdvd, this should do it:
test -d src/lsdvd-* && ( cd src/lsdvd-* ; make uninstall )
rm -f /usr/local/bin/lsdvd /usr/local/man/man1/lsdvd.1 \
find ~/src -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "lsdvd-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
rm -f ~/installed/lsdvd-*.tar.*
