Hi !

Until now I have always used EAC+accuraterip+lame on windows to extract and encode my cds, but now i'm moving to linux (kubuntu), and I see that EAC does not exist for linux.

Does exist a GOOD program like EAC for linux ? And about lame, I think could I use the same file for windows or exist a specific version for linux ? And what about accuraterip ?

PS: excuse me for my bad english, i'm Italian smile.gif

There is no exact replacement of EAC on linux but you can use EAC under wine. Accuraterip works with it also.

EAC can be run through wine, but there are some native linux alternatives to EAC that you might want to consider first.

k3b (not secure, but based off of cdparanoia, so very accurate; great for KDE)
abcde (can be secure with a patch found here on Hydrogenaudio.org)
RubyRipper (found here on Hydrogenaudio.org)
linuxrip (a script found on this particular forum of Hydrogenaudio.org)
Grip (again, not secure, but based off cdparanoia, so very accurate)

Depending on your needs, one of these should do the trick. Good luck, and let us know how everything goes for you.

cdparanoia is pretty accurate it's not designed to work with the hardware like EAC does nor does it do C2 error correction. The newest version reincorporates interpolation and zero pads different sectors. I don't know what Monty has in mind for four, but I think he is aware of the fact that the method he is using to do extraction could be better. It varies from CD to CD only one test was conducted with cdparanoia and EAC. I am one of those folks that doesn't believe you need to have a dependence on the hardware all of the time. We have seen that standalone rippers that correct using a checksum can be just as efficient. In some cases you can't blind test with the original.

yeah... to be honest, i struggled a bit with what adjective to use to describe the accuracy of cdparanoia. its possible, and i'm aware that it may not be "very accurate," on all drives, but i am of the conviction that, for most people on most drives, cdparanoia gives excellent results. unfortunately, i don't have much data on the topic, so my argument is pretty weak.

i just know that when i used RubyRipper, the checksums on my rips matched (meaning cdparanoia yielded a secure rip both times) on just as many cd's as EAC was able to return a secure rip. therefore, i am comfortable recommending it as a very solid ripper to new users. also, i look forward to see where the development in the future will go. smile.gif

I am too. I am just sick of hearing EAC being considered to be "the best ripper" without any specific arguments and I think it's healthy to challenge such bold claims and let the user decide. It's good to see rippers that users on other OS can use besides the beast that is Windows. biggrin.gif. Anyway that's always good to hear. That's my personal opinion.

Question about Ruby Ripper.

Any Ubuntu users here who've had luck getting it to install? I get errors re: libc6. Apparently the version it needs is different than what is on my machine and it won't upgrade.

libc6 is another name glibc. You're probably better of asking on ubuntu forums.

I have ruby ripper working with ubuntu and libc6 is the newest version in the repositories. I don't know what's stopping it being upgraded for you though.

agreed. sorry. i did have it installed a while ago (when rubyripper was first released). it was on breezy, i had just started using linux and i had no idea what i was doing. i guessed alot, played around alot, and asked around alot on ubuntuforums.org, and finally got it running. i have no idea how.

Thanks guys. I just did a full update last night; I'll give it another try. I only occaisionally have access to broadband on w/my home machine, or I'd have tried it earlier.
