Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When trying to rip audio CD's using either k3b or kscd the rip speed is very slow - around playback speed I would guess and therfore to rip an entire cd would take forever.
I have a dual boot system and under Win XP the dvd runs up to full speed during ripping - no problem.
How do I get the DVD to run at full speed under Linux ?
It could be dma not being activate on the drive but I've got the same problems regarding ripping audio cd's (dma is on so dvd playback etc. is fine)
The way I got round it is to use the (python I think) program ripit and tell it to use cdda2wav rather than cdparanoia which admittedly has better error correction but almost always goes for a wee sleep on the beach until I give up and kill it.
Using ripit with cdda2wav I get speeds comparable with ripping & encoding with windows media player or windows Real Player.
well also don't forget that you can turn off a few of the more extreme cdparanoia options. most ripper gui's will either wholly handle, or allow passthrough, of cdparanoia options... just use -Z instead of -YZ for example
Just had a look at the cdparanoia website page (which probably should have done before) and the bloke is aware of one specific problem which seems to be exactly the same as mine - my drive seems to be exhibiting the class signs of "bimodal jitter pattern" (the poor wee thing ). He suggests a fiddly fix to experiment with until the next release where the problem will be addressed.
Anyway not to distract anymore from the original poster...
Sorry folks I seem to have confused you.
The problem I have is the physical speed - revolutions per minute - of the DVD drive during ripping. It stays at a slow speed and therefore rips slowly. I dont think there is anything wrong with the DMA as I can play DVD's fine.
The other pointer which may help is that when I insert a music CD, KsCD starts automatically to play even though this option is disabled.
Any help ?
This thread is pretty old but I ran across it trying to solve the same issue. I read in another post that the reason for slow speed is actually cdparanoia making sure it does an extra good job. Using the -Z option in the cdparanoia command line will turn off the paranoid ripping quality options (in grip for example). It increased my drive speed from 1x to around 10-12x (about as fast as winbloze media player).
