screen recorder

I was wondering if anyone knew of a free screen recorder that isn't hard to install in Linux, and preferably doesn't need gtk+. I have had nightmares getting that to install, and it still won't for me. I tried the Istanbul thing in Synaptic, but after I tell it to stop recording, it changes to an image of a hard drive, and just freezes there up until I turn off the computer, not matter how short the video actually is. Thanks, }SoC{phenix

I was looking at synaptic, and found xvidcap, which is working with just one small bug, but that is easy to get around. Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the reply, but I was looking for something that can make a movie file, so I have a video of the screen.

I use "recordmydesktop" in pclinuxos and it works very very very well indeed !!! (output is ogg) Currently there are packages in lenny and sid, but I haven't tried them in 64studio. Package home page is here http://recordmydesktop.iovar.org/ There are GTK or QT front end packages, but you don't have to use them. It will run simply from the command prompt.

I have used Wink for several years, it works very well. http://www.debugmode.com/wink/ It is cross-platform, the Windows version has a few added features. It also can be sparing of hard drive space. I have started with a 700 meg raw recording, and eventually tweaked it down to a few hundred K. Here is one I made, demonstrating dual-booting Sidux and Windows: http://home.comcast.net/~toughbookhack/tough_linux3.htm
