$ jackNow watch it work. It's fun for a while. After having finished, you have the follwing files on your HD: track_01.mp3, track_02.mp3, ..., track_nn.mp3 plus jack.toc, jack.freedb, jack.progress. The last three are used to store the state jack is in so it can resume work when interrupted.
$ jack -k
$ jack -qwhen succesful the files are now renamed to something more readable and have been ID3 tagged accordingly. jack.freedb contains the queried freedb entry, the original file has been backed up to jack.freedb.bak.
$ vi jack.freedbNote: the DTITLE should be set to
Artist / Name Of Albumor
Various Artist / Name Of Compilationwhen adding a compilation, use
Artist - Title Of Trackfor the track titles. Do not delete any lines from the template. Do not change the numbers. Yes the TTITLEs start at 0 and end one track too early. Read the freedb documentation.
$ jack -Rnow the files have been renamed and tagged. Check the names two or three times. Typo made? No problem, you can alway undo the file renaming with
$ jack -uNote that the ID3 tags are not undone. Fix the freedb file and again, use
$ jack -Rto activate your changes. When you are sure the freedb file is suitable for submission, submit it (via eMail as freedb does not support http submissions as of now. Sendmail must be working on your machine!):
$ jack -m
$ jack -Q --remove
