comment Btrfs Defragmentation Of Files/Folders
This answer is wrong as per the BTRFS wiki: btrfs gotchas. The problem of file fragmentation can easily be reproduced by running systemd-journald on a btrfs volume. Although I have not tested yet inhowfar the autodefrag option solves this problem.

comment Btrfs subvolumes vs folders?
I know this answer is rather old, but I could use a tip right now: You made the statement that one can pick a different replication level per subvolume. Can you give a source or a small howto to that? I was unable to find any and am kinda unable to use this feature (although I'd really like to!) I'm always ending up with the whole system in single or in RAID1 mode.

revised Is there a program that edits audio files to have the same volume?
added hint on metaflac and removed part which was plainly wrong (src: http://sotecware.net/persistent/replaygain.png )

@Oyibo You would not want that, because the offset is scaled so that it plays along with other replaygain files. You would use your volume control for that.

@Oyibo The Option in Banshee afaik only activates support for reading RG-tags from files, it does not do the correction on the fly. So it won't work for files not having any RG tags (which may be why it doesn't work on some files for you).

@Oyibo I filed an edit request for the answer which contains what you have to do for flac files. Replace *ogg with *flac and vorbisgain -r with metaflac --add-replay-gain. mp3gain will calculate the offset in a way similar to what vorbisgain & co. do, so it should not be neccessary to do that by hand.

@izx This is wrong. mp3gain is “lossless” as it uses a gain attribute in each frame of mp3 data. From mp3gain(1): Also, the changes mp3gain makes are completely lossless. There is no quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, without decoding and reencoding.. So while it may be difficult to figure out the initial values, they're just modified by a constant offset, which is perfectly revertible.
