does anyone know of any players for linux that support flac disk images with cuesheets (imbedded or external)?I want to setup a linux box as my media player, but if I can't find the proper support for cuesheets, then I'm either gonna have to resort to windows, or change my method of music storage
When burning a FLAC image to CD and reripping, should I be getting the same checksums as the original CD?
If gaps are appended to the previous track, cue sheets are not necessary to get the same checksums. Offset correction and overreading/overwriting are all that matter.

Yeah. I don't think my drive does overreading and overwriting since it's an NEC, not a Plextor.
How important are the checksums anyway?
Oh yeah, is there anyway to setup EAC so it can decode FLAC on-the-fly when burning CD-Rs, instead of decoding FLAC manually?
If EAC reports "Caching: Yes" your drive caches audio data, every sector read will be read from cache and is identical, this will increase the probability of errors & cause a speed decrease.
Tip: EAC may misinform about audio caching, as an alternative you can use Feurio's audio caching test found in Feurio.exe\Ctrl+Alt+P\Test device\Cache test.
Tip: Some drives disable audio caching at low speeds; if your drive is set to DMA transfer mode, try changing it to PIO only transfer mode, then re-test for caching and set back to DMA mode.
