Install LAME (main site lame.sf.net, search on rpmfind.net for FC packages)
You may then encode with the commandline, but you also may enable Grip to use it.

And why not encode to Ogg Vorbis?

Well err... I think I already installed it. you can chose it as one of the encoders, right?

I don't know, I always converted songs to mp3. I've once tried to convert to ogg but I didn't like it... Don't ask me for reasons, I knew them a while ago but I forgot them T_T

Grip lets you choose a variety of encoders, even if you don't have them installed.

You still need to install LAME to actually do any encoding.

Also, I don't think SoundJuicer will let you encode to MP3, even if you do have LAME installed. You'll probably have to use grip.

Can you run '/usr/bin/lame' in a terminal? What happens?

this is what I get
Code:
$ lame
LAME version 3.96.1 (http://lame.sourceforge.net/)

usage: lame [options] <infile> [outfile]

    <infile> and/or <outfile> can be "-", which means stdin/stdout.

Try:
     "lame --help"           for general usage information
 or:
     "lame --preset help"    for information on suggested predefined settings
 or:
     "lame --longhelp"
  or "lame -?"              for a complete options list

Exactly what problem are you having with Grip? It looks like your settings are all correct.

It encodes only to wav. and if I change it to mp3 there's only an mp3 or m3u of 0B.

A few things to check (I don't have my Linux laptop here with me):

1. are you pressing "rip and encode"?
2. giving it enough time?
3. are the "file format" boxes on the Rip and Encode tabs pointing to the same folder?
4. can you use the same options in the "encoder command-line" box in a terminal to make the mp3?

1. yes
2. steps grip does: ripping (till the track is ripped) and encoding (duration: 2 seconds)
3. yes
4. I don't know ( Encoder command-line: -h -b %b %w %m)

'man lame' gives you the meaning of the command-line switches. The grip help has a page that explains what the % flags are.

I use the following lame switches:
Code:
-q 0 --preset standard --replaygain-accurate
Also, listen to the .wavs. Do they sound correct?
