One-liner to clean DNF package cache but keep latest version of each package

If you’re running Fedora or Red Hat and have turned on the DNF package cache, eventually you’ll start using gigabytes of disk space. Simply running dnf clean packages will erase everything in the package cache.

One-liner to recursively convert flac to mp3
