can't seem to start grip in KDE.  hasn't been working since i installed it, so i tried changing the cdrom device option in config, and now it won't even start.  rebooting computer & uninstalling/reinstalling the RPM did nothing.  is there a text file i can change somewhere to possibly remedy this?  appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

What version of linux are you running this on?  If it is Redhat 8.0 I can try it out on my install and see how it behaves for me.

man it sucks when stuff won't even start.  well, for any of you that use grip (and for those of you who don't, it rips cds great), my problem was a quick fix.  you just have to specify the device by running grip from the command line.

$grip --device=/dev/cdrom1
