Doesn't dvd::rip support matroska? There is nothing you can do with ogm files and you can't do with matroska files, quite the opposite. Also, ogm files were a really ugly hack, which is now abandoned of course and you really shouldn't be creating any more of them. If dvd::rip doesn't support matroska, I would consider it dated to say the least.
No matroska yet, but it does support h.264 on avi containers.

But I'm having transcoding issues using dvd::rip on Salix. It's weird since it works flawlessly on Slackware. :|

So I'm looking for alternatives on Salix right now. What do you guys use for DVD ripping and transcoding? Plain vobcopy + transcode?

Did not test, but it has a tab called "Subtitles".

I gave it a try, it's great.

Only 'issue' is the lack of an option for ripping directly to an avi container... oh well, guess transcode and mencoder didn't come from the Geek Heaven for nothing.

Just use the mkv container, which is "standard" nowadays. Every recent hardware player I know can play mkv files and mkv has some advantages over avi (e.g.: IIRC avi only supports files up to 2 GB, which is way to less for HD content).

It's also an optional dependency for my dvd::rip package ;)

Thanks for the Link Shador :) But still:
Many applications, especially older ones, use the Video for Windows architecture, which limits AVI files to 2 GB in size. Standard AVI files can be up to 4 GB in size if other methods of handling AVIs are used. However, those other methods are rarely used.
* 4 GB is not enough, too ;)
* No idea if all hardware players with AVI support still would play AVIs over 2 GB.
