Automatic "hands free" ripping??


Hello

Has anyone found a way to rip CDs to ogg files just by inserting the CD, without clicking on anything, and so the drive ejects when it's done? It's for a screenless, keyboardless mediaserver so needs to be completely automatic. Maybe I could do it with a script, but how do you initiate it from the disc insert?

Thanks

Alan

Thank You that looks like a really excellent program

The only loose end I think I need to tie up now is how to initiate the program ripit on inserting a CD. In the ripit read me it says you have to insert the CD and type ripit. Of course I won't be able to do this. I'll be using Fedora core 3, which uses Udev. There's some automatic disc thingy in KDE isn't there? would that do it - or is there a sneaky system service or script I can use?

Thanks again

Alan

Well, with suse, they have something called suseplugger. You can set it to execute an app on drive load. I think it's annoying as fuck, so I don't use it. But you may find it useful. Would be best to do it at the init 3 script level rather than a GUI though, I would think.

Yes, is it "diskdruid" in Gnome, and some thing like "supermount" in KDE ?? (or are they something else?) - Yes the first thing I did was turn all that lot off as it all annoys the hell out of me. consequently I don't know anything about it! Thanks for the pointers though.

Now all I wish is I could get windows XP to stop nagging me (Do nothing - always do this action - and it still always always comes up) But the chances of that are very slim.
