Porting SHA1 codes to EFI stub environment

a project by joeyli

For Hibernate Signature Verification - HMAC version, I need a hash algorithm in EFI stub environment before ExitBootServices() to mix / mess random seed from different sources (rdtsc, rdrand...) for generating the HMAC key to sign the hibernate image in runtime environment. There have no any hash functions provides by EFI services, so need implement it in EFI stub. I choice SHA1 to be the target algorithm because currently I choice HMAC-SHA1 to be the algorithm to generate signature of hibernate image.

kGraft (SLE Live Patching) Testing Repository Setup

an idea by Jeffreycheung

Per talk with Libor, there is another interesting task connected with Live Patching, and that's testing of the repository setup. As there is no one used the update mechanism in the way we are going to. Building a proof of concept ahead of time will likely save us headaches later on.

Port debtags to SUSE

an idea by dmuhamedagic

The Debian debtags package and database are a flexible scheme to assign tags (properties) to packages of a distribution. It would be of benefit to SUSE to port debtags.

What are these tags good for?

a project by bchou

I had presented the "Wicked Network Manager" talk at openSUSE Asia summit @Beijing. I would like to keep studying the topic continuously. Getting involve the source code and study the operating style and components. I also met some problem after discussing and testing issues while my research , I want to keep it as a record and writing the technical document on wiki too.

filesystem checking using symbolic execution

an idea by jirislaby

I already wrote a description and this shit ate it after I clicked create project (because "go home" overlapped). I won't write the long story second time, sorry. In short: symbolic execution on btrfs and input of death, that is.

kGraft: allow to handle more patches in parallel

a project by pmladek

Current kGraft implementation allows to apply new patch only when the previous one is applied to the whole system. Every task is handled separately and it needs to wait for a safe place to switch. It might take a while, especially when the task is sleeping. Therefore it would be great to allow to apply more patches in parallel. It is not trivial because different tasks might be in different world, so the slow stub has to be clever and choose the right one without taking any lock...

make FF use ntlm_auth for NTLMv2

a project by jmcdough

Firefox dropped its built-in ntlm auth as it only handled ntlmv1 (insecure). On windows it uses SSPI to handle the ntlm cases, and on other platforms it simply does not support NTLM at all (and then only v1) without a manual flag change. Let's get it recognizing /usr/bin/ntlm_auth as the system tool for doing this.

Bring up Linux on Optimus Board (Allwinner A80)

a project by a_faerber

The Allwinner Tech Optimus Board by Merrii is the evaluation board for the Allwinner A80 SoC with big.LITTLE Cortex-A15/-A7 configuration (32-bit ARMv7). The sources leaked from Allwinner contain GPL violations in U-Boot and Linux kernel and therefore won't easily build with openSUSE's armhf gcc (binaries seem to be softfp).

KVM for Nvidia Jetson TK1

a project by a_faerber

The Nvidia Jetson TK1 is an SBC with Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC (quad-core Cortex-A15, 32-bit ARMv7). I have openSUSE running on the Jetson TK1, but KVM is currently not usable as the CPUs are not booted in HYP mode. Thierry Reding of Nvidia has some work-in-progress for U-Boot and upstream kernel that I would like to test.

openSUSE for IFC6540

a project by a_faerber

The Inforce Computing IFC6540 is an SBC with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC (32-bit ARMv7). I had previously brought up openSUSE on the IFC6410. A week before Hackweek Interstellar I got the IFC6540 to boot on serial console using the upstream-based Linaro integration branch, up to searching for the rootfs. Since USB and SATA support were still missing, my goal will be to prepare a MicroSD based rootfs to complete the bringup.

openSUSE for Firefly-RK3288

a project by a_faerber

The Firefly-RK3288 is the first SBC with the Rockchip RK3288 SoC, the first available chip with Cortex-A17 cores (32-bit ARMv7). I received such a board just in time for Hackweek Interstellar and will be looking into booting an upstream kernel with openSUSE 13.2/Factory rootfs.

open-iscsi use of multi-queue to implement MCS

a project by lee_duncan

The open-iscsi package is the de facto standard Linux iSCSI initiator, but it does not support iSCSI MCS. MCS stands for multiple connections per session, and it means that the iSCSI initiator and target communicate over multiple connections to increase throughput. It is sometimes written as "MC/S".

GRUB menu for QA PXE boot environment

an idea by zluo

At moment PowerKVM client needs to be shutdown after installation. A manual changes for boot orders in configuration file is needed for booting up SLES 12. The idea is to create GRUB menu which can be handed over from DNS Server to client when it starts up. The GRUB menu should contains normal installation option and entry which is able to boot SLES 12 from hard disk.

Proof of Concept Support for SUSE Cloud, best practice

a project by rsimai

With many Proof of Concepts (PoCs) going on for SUSE Cloud, the development team has observed that we have no clear path on how Sales Engineers (SEs) and sometimes dedicated support engineers (xSE) can receive technical support to successfully complete the projects, often leading to escalation calls and even firefighting on-site visits by developers. Goal of that project is to come up with a best practice guide and to eventually set expectations on what's possible from a development point of view. Results should be documented in a central internal location and announced to all relevant parties.

one-click distribution from web page

an idea by mhocko

Maybe this is something we already know but I haven't found it. But found it really cool how Debian can be installed easily from Windows machines. Just have a look at I have learned that our installation CD already can install OpenSUSE from Windows based systems so I think this shouldn't that hard to move this to we based installation.
