CD ripping and encoding?

I would like a tool that rips CD's and encodes them to either MP3 or ogg. A gui would be better but I could live without one, and I would like some way to tell the program to write the id3 tags (or whatever the ogg equivalent is), but if it doesnt, its not the worst thing in the world.

any ideas?

I know about grip but I dont have gnome nor do I plan to get gnome (i tried compiling it already, it doesnt work.)

Dekagen is a very versatile tool. It's not that pretty but it is still very user friendly. It does ogg, mp3, id3 tagging, automatic retrieval of album information - and so on.

Use Grip

Works well.

**edit - oop's, never mind. Noticed you don't like/use grip.

grip is just a frontend for cdparanoia and lame. You can use cdparanoia (the ripper) and lame (the MP3 encoder) entirely separately from grip.

abcde! No really thats the name of it. Its strictly command line but who needs a gui to rip and encode cds? All you do is edit the conf file to your liking, pop in your cd, and type 'abcde' and your on your way. It does id3 tags too.
