Optimised software

Wow. First time since I have my new 1.5GHz laptop, with 512MB of RAM and a 24x CD/DVD drive, that I try to rip one of my CDs to mp3:

1.0x!

Beautiful !
And no, it’s not a DMA problem:
[colin@jack ~]$ sudo hdparm /dev/cdrom
Password:
/dev/cdrom:
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
HDIO_GETGEO failed: Invalid argument

It’s probably because of cdparanoia, which is much slower than cdda2wav for example. It does extra verifications, and is really good for ripping old and damaged CD :)

news for few, stuff no-one cares about
