I rip a lot of CD audiobooks to MP3 and it is a pain that ripperX closes down after ripping each disc. I then have to re-open ripprX, re-enter the artist and book info etc.
Is it possible for the application to NOT close down after every disc, or have an option in the config section to override this default behaviour?
Thanks

    RipperX is designed to remain open at the end of the ripping cycle.

    There is a bug in a basic library file from most Linux distributions that ripperX uses to create id3 tags, libid3, that is crashing and causing ripperX to close. The bug either immediately causes a crash after ripping/encoding, or after adding tags to the first 9 songs (actually, whenever the track number becomes double digits).

    Some distributions have repaired the bug. Check your distribution for a fix.
