grip : no write access to write encoded file


Sorry if some ever gave the solutions but I tried all search in this forum...

anyway this is getting me nuts

running Fedora 3 (not latest kernel since that one doens't allow me to use slmodemd, or i didn't figure it out yet )

installed grip... found I had to install lame so I did but

I don't have lame in /usr/bin but lamexec ..... same ?

ripping goes like a charm in grip and .wav files are made and when played sound correct.
Encoding doesn't work, figured out that you need to give the path to the encoder... so I did to lamexec

but now I get this error : no write access to write encoded file

tried all I know from linux (ok I admit still noob)

the directories in my home part are under my username 'eric' and also group'eric'
And all sub directories and files are same....

what do I miss ?

Is my lame wrong ? Is it a permissions somewhere ?

Not sure this is enough to help you help me...

If more needed, let me know (eventually how to get it, still leanring)

thanks for your help

eric

thanks, I solved the lame issue this time, took me some time to find a good installer.

Still the same issue with Grip : no write access to write encoded file

I went in terminal and encoded with lame from command line and surprise it does work. Took me another half an hour search to figure out that mp3 is banned from Fedora distro.... solved that also

but still this weird permission error...

When I look at an mp3 file, it is root created (though in normal user terminal and not super user) , but this deosn't affect playback in user level

What could this error be within Grip ? What is preventing Grip to write the mp3 file ?

thanks again

I'm not sure I get this

"When I look at an mp3 file, it is root created (though in normal user terminal and not super user) , but this deosn't affect playback in user level

Grip will rip a track from CD and encode it to mp3 but won't write the mp3 to the dir you specified?
I'm not sure what permission problem that you are having.
Try running grip as root and see if that solves it.
Open a terminal, make yourself root, then run grip.
You can also change the ownership of a file with chown. If root owns it then you will have to be root to change it. Look at the man page for chown and chmod.

Encoder options

I was having the same trouble and fixed it by setting the "Encode file format" option. It was blank on my computer. I don't know for sure, but I assume this means it was trying to encode to the root folder or who knows where. Here's the settings I used:

~/mp3/%A/%d/%n.mp3

The key was using ~/mp3/ at the beginning to force the file to rip to my home folder.
