[grip] refuses to encode to ogg


I have a problem to making Grip encode into ogg. Lame works fine. When using ogg vorbis, grip just doesn't do anything. I guess there is a problem of passing the parameters to the encoder. I checked all of them and they look fine to me (fixme). My ~/.grip-oggenc looks like this:

GRIP 2
exe /usr/bin/oggenc
cmdline -q 5 -a %A -l %d -t %n -N %t -G %G -d %y
extension ogg

What can I do to make Grip encode the ripped tracks to Ogg Vorbis?

Maybe a stupid question, but have you made sure you actually have oggenc installed? How about running a test encode from the command line with it, just to make sure the problem isn't there?

It isn't, but I currently have Ogg Vorbis encoder.

[liviu@dhcp-48-132 ~]$ ls -l /usr/bin/ogg*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 60484 Jul 10 2005 /usr/bin/ogg123*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9952 Jul 10 2005 /usr/bin/oggdec*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 56060 Jul 10 2005 /usr/bin/oggenc*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 22644 Jul 10 2005 /usr/bin/ogginfo*

And scripts for converting wav to ogg ...
#!/bin/sh
#
# wav to ogg

for i in *.wav; do

if [ -e "$i" ]; then
file=`basename "$i" .wav`
oggenc -q 5 -o "$file.ogg" "$i"
fi

done

... worked quite well for me.

I need grip in order to take full advantage of its freedb capabilities. Any other ideas to make Grip encode to Ogg Vorbis?

EDIT: I forgot to note that grip considers that the encoder does its job. That is, after ripping the track, it passes the oggenc command, then feels oggenc finished its job (displays 100% progress) and afterwards deletes the .wav file (if you do not specify the contrary in options, the .wav files are lost).

It is also strange that I get this error: "Couldn't disable kernel command translation layer" for each lame-encoded track.
