Rip CD to FLAC, then convert FLAC to Ogg Vorbis

Posted 12-29-2006 at 10:03 AM by Caysho

Assuming you want a FLAC copy, of course.
Use any good ripper app to extract to FLAC.
I'm currently using Sound Juicer, but under OpenSuSE I was using another one from the Gnome suite (called something like XCDRipper, which was more configurable than Sound Juicer).
Then, I found a script to convert to MP3, which I modified.
It doesn't like spaces in the filenames.

That thread also talks about cd2ogg, which has been very handy.

SSH your Debian servers without password

Secure Shell is a program to log into another computer over a network, to execute commands in a remote machine, and to move files from one machine to another. It provides strong authentication and secure communications over unsecure channels. It is intended as a replacement for telnet, rlogin, rsh, and rcp. For SSH2, there is a replacement for FTP: sftp.This might be useful if you are trying to connect everytime to your server remotely.

Because of kernel panic - not syncing unable to mount root arch (...)
After kernel update edit to in /boot/brub/menu.lst:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro earlymodules=piix
initrd /boot/kernel26.img

workgroup = workgroup
server string = ylinserv
bios name = ylinserv

encrypt passwords = yes
