This is an old revision of the document!

an open alternative to the CDDB lock in.

for programms that do no allow you to select a cd metadata server (eg itunes) the following line is helpful in /etc/hosts

<file> ## route cddb → freedb <file>

NOTE: freedb uses the cddb1 protocol, whereas most recent cddb access (eg. itunes versions > 4) is done using cddb2, which is imcompatible, furthering the encroachment…)
