The obnoxious ID3v1/ID3v2 Bug and when EasyTAG comes to rescue

Filed under
Software

Since I switched from listening music with Winamp (under Windows) to the plethora of Linux music players, I'm pissed off from time to time by a famous ID3 bug, which says:

If a song has a correct ID3v2 tag, but lacks a correct ID3v1 tag, you will most likely see only garbage in the playlists of most music players under Linux.

For some players, I suspect the bug might be in the taglib, because the id3lib works well without any doubt, but some other players, there is a bug in the minds of the developers:

if right-clicking on the song in the list, then choosing to see the tune's info shows the correct IDv2 tag, then why the displayed one is not the same?!

Full Story.

Understanding The Linux Kernel's BPF In-Kernel Virtual Machine

Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine.
