I am an arch user, but recently I installed ubuntu 14.04, just because why not, and I realised something, EVERY THING RUNS BETTER. I can actually play games like garry's mod without my computer dieing, so I ask, why arch, why... :'( My will has been brokensubmitted by XYZAFFA1R

I'm running Debian 7, graphics card is GTX 560 with updated drivers. I was having trouble with audio (couldn't get it to work) earlier, but have since figured it out. Under the sound settings>hardware I had to select the HDMI Audio Controller and then select a profile (off, 4x Digital Surround 5.1 (HDMI) Output options, and 4x Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output options, for 9 total options).
Only on of the surround sound and one of the stereo options actually produce sound when selected, however, whenever a sound starts the screen will flickerl, such as at the beginning of every song when playing Pandora.
I'm sure this is not intended. I've opened up alsamixer to ensure that nothing was muted, and turned all the way up, and tried some other profiles for the sound card that don't flicker, but there's still no sound, only on the 2 that do flicker.
Any ideas?submitted by Sythus
Given a cluster of servers in a development environment, each with a different set of installed RPMs which are often updated via CI server or manual deployment, is there an existing tool (a lightweight webserver or something) out there that I could install on each server in order to easily view information on all of the installed RPMs via HTTP? I could write a script that SSHes into each server to gather that same data, but that's messy.
I could write my own tool for this, but I figured I'd make sure I'm not reinventing the wheel. Googling hasn't really turned up anything promising.
The idea is that when I'm developing or testing, I'd like to be able to easily gather information on the state of the cluster, including what's currently installed on each server.
To clarify, given that rpm can display info like this at the command line, I'd like to get the same data as JSON or XML or something via a simple HTTP GET.# rpm -qpil foo.bar Name : rpm Distribution: Red Hat Linux Vanderbilt Version : 2.3 Vendor: Red Hat Software Release : 1 Build Date: Tue Dec 24 09:07:59 1996 Install date: (none) Build Host: porky.redhat.com Group : Utilities/System Source RPM: rpm-2.3-1.src.rpm Size : 631157 Summary : Red Hat Package Manager Description : RPM is a powerful package manager, which can be used to build, install, query, verify, update, and uninstall individual software packages.
