Hack Week is the time SUSE employees experiment, innovate & learn interruption-free for a whole week! Across teams or alone, but always without limits.

A SUSE tradition since 2007, Hack Week has brought together hundreds of hackers around the globe to collaborate on open source. Learn more about Hack Week.

Port some classic game to Linux

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

Preserve SUSE's history

Project Description

SUSE dissolved an old warehouse, containing lots and lots of boxes with old SUSE / SuSE / S.u.S.E software. All of those boxes were originally going to be dumped in March 2021, which could be prevented.

Create an ALP based Leap replacement. (Grassy Knoll)

Hackweek 23

Since Hackweek 22 this project has been made much easier with the introduction of "ALP Granite" however that project is not in a state where it is ready for us to do significant work without it as such my goals for this hackweek atleast are somewhat less then last Hackweek, hopefully by next hackweek Granite will be in a better place to build on.

early stage kdump support

Project Description

When we experience a early boot crash, we are not able to analyze the kernel dump, as user-space wasn't able to load the crash system. The idea is to make the crash system compiled into the host kernel (think of initramfs) so that we can create a kernel dump really early in the boot process.
