Grip comes with SuSE. It's in the menu Multimedia, CD/DVD tools, Grip

If it isn't installed then open Yast, click on software, install remove software, in the windows that will open, type grip into the search box, when it finds it, put a check in it, click accept. Insert whichever CD, or DVD it asks for.

variable bit-rate encoding?

I prefer high bitrates, but they are inaccurate.
As a result I use variable bitrate. It allows for higher-quality mp3s, but preserves space.
Is this possible using grip?

If you use the oggenc encoder, it defaults to vbr.
I never have really figured out how to fully configure grip exactly as I want it (I think it has bugs as I can't close it but have to kill it), but you can see the man and/or info pages for your preferred encoder. Once the wavs are ripped, encode them however you want, but the gui is more limited in it's configuration than the encoders are with the proper flags in my experience.

man oggenc
man lame

From man oggenc:
Simplest version. Produces output as somefile.ogg:
oggenc somefile.wav

Specifying an output filename:
oggenc somefile.wav -o out.ogg

Specifying a high-quality encoding averaging 256 kbps (but still VBR).
oggenc infile.wav -b 256 out.ogg

Specifying a maximum and average bitrate, and enforcing these.
oggenc infile.wav --managed -b 128 -M 160 out.ogg

Specifying quality rather than bitrate (to a very high quality mode)
oggenc infile.wav -q 6 out.ogg

Downsampling and downmixing to 11 kHz mono before encoding.
oggenc --resample 11025 --downmix infile.wav -q 1 out.ogg

Adding some info about the track:
oggenc somefile.wav -t "The track title" -a "artist who per-
formed this" -l "name of album" -c "OTHERFIELD=contents of some
other field not explictly supported"

This encodes the three files, each with the same artist/album tag, but
with different title tags on each one. The string given as an argument
to -n is used to generate filenames, as shown in the section above.
This example gives filenames like "The Tea Party - Touch.ogg":
oggenc -b 192 -a "The Tea Party" -l "Triptych" -t "Touch"
track01.wav -t "Underground" track02.wav -t "Great Big Lie"
track03.wav -n "%a - %t.ogg"

Encoding from stdin, to stdout (you can also use the various tagging
options, like -t, -a, -l, etc.):
oggenc -
