So, I got frustrated at the awkwardness of ripping a CD to MP3 on Linux (Fedora in particular), so I wrote this little Python script. It rips the current CD to the current directory using cdda2wav, and then calls LAME to encode to MP3, naming the files by track number and name. Requires: cdda2wav, LAME, and Python. Python and cdda2wav are available in the standard Fedora distribution. You will have to get LAME elsewhere, or download the source and build it yourself.
