    Are there any recommendations for editing your own movies/dvd's under linux? I'm getting ready to take the "linux plunge" again, after a couple of years and want to take my latest hobby with me.
    Any recommendations?

    There are a few options. I like avidemux for mpeg and avi, keno for dv, and k9copy and xdvdshrink for dvd.

    It does seem to be a powerful app. It was however a pain to get it running right. Had to search out a good many things it is dependent on. If you just want to check it out you may want to get a live distro with it installed to play with. There are a few the only one that comes to mind right now is elive. I got it to see how enlightnment works. I can not really say I liked it elive though.

    just passing thru..i still can't comment on movie editing/etc in Linux as i haven't got around to that yet, but i can vouch for Enlightenment, i use it at home and work on 2 or 3 machines, it's lean and excellent

    I can now vouch for Enlightenment also. I still dont like Elive but not because of Enlightenment. The wife has seen a friends comp running dreamlinux and she wanted Engage. I setup Enlightenment E17 with engage as the dock for her distro and it runs really well. Her distro is LinuxMint Bea until Bianca is released stable in a couple weeks.

    Do you have experience with Suse? I started with Mandriva, but had a real bugger of a time getting my nvidia card working correctly with it and finally just gave up.

    I hate ati, but seeing as they've joined forces with amd to make the quad core processor, I guess I can't stay mad at them

    any ways...I'm having a bit of trouble getting drivers for my digital camcorder, do you guys know any sites with stable linux drivers?

    sorry for being some what off topic

    You might want to list the make and model of your comcorder. I doubt I can be much help with your camcorder but some here may, if you list what it is.
