yes i'm running as root.   calling it from "rip"

probably belongs in users , but i think this "package" is buggy
it's the package!:)

it's ----->Bizarre behaviour!

I got it to work SORT OF if i put it into the cd burner /dev/cd1d
but must have a dummy CD in the dvdcd  /dev/cd0d

??? go figure.


then it read the titles from the   /dev/cd1d
and the actual music from /dev/cd0d

fair dinkum!

used :  rip -S -d /dev/cd1d

instead of just rip -S

either rip or the perl is buggy !
