Have you ever wondered how to backup your audio/data cd using linux? Sure you can use a windows machine running Roxio, but why should you pay for something that you can do for free (using Fedora)? Now, you may asked "Why not start XWindows and run the Xcdroast program?". Xcdroast program is a great problem for people who have the luxury of running XWindows. If you are at a pinch and you need to backup your data/audio Disk, then command line is the best solution.
Here is what you will be using...
Available via Fedora (core 1/2)
root@localhost> cat /dev/cdrom > /tmp/FILE.iso
root@localhost> cdrecord -v speed=2 dev=0,0,0 /tmp/FILE.iso
root@localhost> rm /tmp/FILE.iso
root@localhost> cd /tmp root@localhost> cdparanoia -v -B
root@localhost> cdrecord -v useinfo speed=2 dev=0,0,0 fs=4096k -dao -eject -pad -audio "`ls /tmp/*.wav`"
root@localhost> rm /tmp/*.wav
