im a proud windows user cool.gif but my adventure instinc told me i have to move to linux biggrin.gif i just have installed some distros in the past on my PC, but that was in the past when my audio hungry was not that big like in the present. im posting this just because im afraid to lose the advantages of having windows for encoding M4a files on linux. is just ┐could i do that on linux? how? can anybody tell me? im a little concerned about the change too because there is not a FB2k port for linux, is there any other good (like foobar) for linux?
well, that is all.
apologies for my english, it is not good. laugh.gif

thanks

for beginners, i'd strongly suggest that u try mandrake as it is both simple to install/use and also support many languages. u might wanna check linuxquestions.org; u'll find lots of info there.

about audio and encoding, u can use grip, an excellent frontend for cdparanoia. it's probably as good as eac though no real tests have been conducted between eac/win - cdpara/linux! i use both and cant see any real difference.

check this thread: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....=14483&hl=linux
i run frontah (http://home.vxu.se/mdati00/frontah/) with wine under mandrake 9.2; i can encode to/from plenty of formats, all you'll need is the windows binary of your encoder in the frontah folder.
