+Grip is a gtk-based cd-player and cd-ripper. It has the ripping
+capabilities of cdparanoia builtin, but can also use external rippers
+(such as cdda2wav).
+This is an older version of Grip that does not require GNOME. If you're
+looking for a modern version of Grip, see the package "grip".
+By default, it is safe to install grip2 and grip at the same time,
+although not particularly useful. If you don't plan to install both, pass
+SMYLINKS=yes to the build script. This will allow you to run "grip" and/or
+"gcd" (instead of having to say "grip2" and "gcd2"). Note that with
+SMYLINKS=yes, this package will conflict with the regular grip package.
+Before running grip2 for the first time, you may want to copy the file
+"/usr/doc/grip2-2.96/dot.grip.sample" to "$HOME/.grip". This sets the
+default encoder to oggenc, and puts the track number at the front of
+each output filename.
