The ripper he's using is ripoff I assume (source code here:
extraction functionality contained in src/RipOffExtractor.c) . It uses
libparanoia to do its job, like the cdparanoia command. On my system,
ripoff has high CPU usage with a 2.6.16 kernel as well, but it reports a
9.0x rate on average.
Could the fact that it has such high CPU usage be a possible reason I am
experiencing a slower ripping speed (1.2x) when the patch that was git
bisected is applied?
