comment Do I need swap space if I have more than enough amount of RAM?
"your swap space gives you a little time and cushion to address the problem" -- It also means I have to sit that much longer in front of an unresponsive machine until a memory leak "solves" itself.

comment Copy FLAC tags to MP3 files?
Happy tinkering then; from my reading, there's no clean method but "read all tags with tool A and write them with tool B" since the tag formats are incompatible. See here, for instance. (Note that avconv uses flac and lame internally.)

comment Copy FLAC tags to MP3 files?
You can use avconv for the conversion and have it copy the metadata. ("Trivial answer converted to comment" -- why, thank you SE!)

You can, kind of; the edit will be reviewed by high-reps. Given that you fixed an actual bug, I assume they would have accepted it! (You get +2 rep for accepted edits, too.)

Good catch, thanks! You could just have edited that into my answer, though.

comment How to change height and width of each page of a pdf
Ghostscript may have to rasterize stuff PS does not support. For simple PDFs, this works nicely. Still looking for a solution that is PDF-only.
