I'm looking for a good program to back up my DVD's. I do not want to re-encode to a smaller format, in fact I don't want to sacrifice one drop of quality. My system is pretty lightweight right now and I'd like to keep it that way, therefore I am looking primarily for a command-line tool to perform this task. Searching around, vobcopy looked nice I guess, but it was masked ~. I'd prefer not to use these (~) as I am [ijust[/i] getting comfortable using gentoo. What tool(s) is available for and works well on ppc?

I use 'dvdbackup', its console-based and it works with no problems, its in portage (media-video/dvdbackup).

What if I need to write it to a DVD disc one day? Does dvdbackup take care of any encryption that might prevent me from writing to disc?

Yes, I believe that it decrypts it as it copies it to the harddrive, so you can just use growisofs (from app-cdr/dvd+rw-tools) to burn it to a DVD after.
