I was having issues with the volume keys on my Linux desktop when using applications like Spotify and Kodi. I found out that this is because the channel that is created by PulseAudio by default is linked to the master channel resulting in all kind of weirdness when adjusting the volume. This can be fixed by disabling the flat-volumes option in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
My complete audio CD collection is ripped in FLAC format on my server. Because I also want to play the songs on MP3 players I was looking for a way to easily convert them all at the same time. This would be very easy with some easy scripting but why invent warm water again? I found this great Python script that does it for you called flac2all. It ignores files that have been converted already so I can just run it again after I ripped a new CD.

If you have a NFS 4 server you need to specify that you want to use version 3 for the root system in your boot parameters.
APPEND ip=dhcp root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=:/path/to/root,nfsvers=3 init=/linuxrc
