Grip's 'cdparanoia' doesn't work for reg. users.

Description of Problem:
The 'cdparanoia' default doesn't work. Debug output wasn't really helpful.
'cdda2wav' works fine though.
It seems to be a permissions problem with running cdparanoia. I'm filling this
against grip because I ~think~ it should perhaps use a wrapper or something to
get room perms. Or default to 'cdda2wav' since it works straight out of the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run grip, don't change default 'cdparanoia'.
2. Try to rip a CD. Just to WAV or to OGG.
3. Watch it instantly get done. But do nothing expect write indeces.
Nothing. That is the problem. ;-)
I want my OGG! I'd expect it to rip to WAV and allow conversion.
Come to think of it, cdparanoia itself might be the problem and not grip. I'll
try to learn it seperatly a bit later and update the bug if you don't get to
it first. 'cdparanoia' as root works but otherwise fails. I honestly have
never ripped anything until 8.0 so I'm not yet familiar how it should work.
I'm not sure if cdparanoia ~should~ require root privs (doesn't make sense is
cdda2wav works). Anyhow.
Setting to low/low since it's trivial in any case.
I agree that it's proper to file this against grip, even if cdparanoia also has
problems. I hope the upstream author(s) of grip can add better nursing to the
Grip should offer a message or explanation that a child process (rip, normalize,
tag, encode, whatever) died unexpectedly, with any info available if possible.
This is behavior found on CDR[W] drives under the ide-scsi emulation that is
enabled by default in the /etc/grub.conf file:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-17.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
You can disable ide-scsi for the CDRW drive- which temporarily prevents you from
using the drive to burn disks, but allows you to use cdparanoia.
I had this problem. I solved it by adding the ordinary users to the "disk" group
in the /etc/group file.
Fixed with kudzu-0.99.92-1.
