openSUSE Landing Page Prototype

a project by hennevogel

www.opensuse.org is the single most accessed page in the SUSE/openSUSE universe. With 1.5 million visits per month it generates 2.5 million page views and has around 500 people on the page at any given time. Yet it's one of the oldest, crufty pages we have! It doesn't concentrate on what it should do: Tell people about the distro so they download it. It's design is 5 years old, it's not mobile, it's not accessible. There is absolutely no interactive, engaging content at all and the technology used goes as far as a shell script/cron to update dynamic content.

Hack the Hack Week tool

an invention by hennevogel

This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing. It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!

Resistance is Futile - Using zypper to "upgrade" CentOS/RHEL to openSUSE/SLES

a project by RBrownSUSE

zypper is magic

A number of experiments suggest that it may be feasible to run zypper from an openSUSE 'live' media against a 'foreign' RPM based OS installation (eg. CentOS) and then 'zypper dup' to openSUSE

crash-python

a project by jeff_mahoney

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

Video presence system for distributed teams

a project by ancorgs

Those working remotely or managing a distributed team know it: face time is invaluable. The former openSUSE team has been using http://sqwiggle.com to keep in touch and Google hangout to hold a stand up meeting every morning. We like the Sqwiggle approach. Although the last updates have made it worse, the concept of having a peep to your colleagues' desks to know if they are there (even if they are working hard or just talking to someone) and the possibility of starting a video conversation just clicking on the face shot can do a lot in reducing distances (and in killing the temptation of working naked for home-officers).

x86 instructions decoder

a project by bpetkov

This is the tool I've been working on since HW11 and it needs more work. Actually, there's always something which could be done on it. It is basically an x86 instruction decoder with special emphasis on the kernel and decoding interesting pieces of it in order to help in the development of low-level patching techniques, among others. git repo: https://gitlab.suse.de/bp/x86d

Experiment with uselessd as a systemd replacement on openSUSE 13.1

an invention by dsterba

The base version for uselessd is systemd-208, which is the version used in 13.1. Let's try if a direct substitution of the binaries works and watch out for the problems. Expected result of the project is to have a working package with "Conflicts: systemd" and "Provides: systemd". The goal is not to fix all problems, a stripped down system with uselessd is considered a good achievement. Anything more complicated could build on top of this.

Hell-O-Kitty

an idea by coolo

HWinterstellar happens a week before halloween, so my project is to create a Hell-o-Kitty.

There are various 3D-Models e.g. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:184363 - and adding some LEDs that blink using a tinyDuino into it should be very possible during hackweek.

openSUSE 13.2 ARM hackathon

a project by algraf

openSUSE 13.2 is taking shape on ARM, but we need to make sure we smoothen its edges to make an actual release out of it. The goal of this project is to make sure all devices we should run on actually work and that the last few packages necessary for productive use of ARM devices work properly on 13.2.

Where has all the power gone ?

a project by bigironman

SUSE currently consumes a lot of electricity for keeping servers up an running as well as workstations at the office rooms, air-conditions and so on. The project is about to collect information where all the power is going to and to find sweet spots for saving power (and money).

Reimplementation of "quilt setup"

an invention by jdelvare

I would like to change the way "quilt setup" is implemented. At the moment, we call rpmbuild and intercept the calls to tar and patch in order to record the location where archives are extracted and the order and options of the patches which apply to them. Then we replay that record to create our own quilt-compatible source tree.

Disk operations should not stale the system

an idea by pmladek

It happens from time to time that my system is less responsible. It is usually caused by extensive disk operations, e.g. searching disk for something, moving a lot of data. A solution would be to run these problematic tasks with ionice. But I think that desktop user should not need to take care of this. Also some of the operations are even caused by system tools and normal user has problems to affect it. I wonder if we could somehow improve the desktop setting or it it would even need some hacks into the scheduler. I have just heard that this should be fined in the last kernels. But I also heard that it still does not work well, for example when copying from/to USB memory stick.

Biofeedback / Neuroscanner / Dreamanalyser

an idea by chuller

This project is based on some hack of a mind flex toy containing a so called "neurosky eeg" chip. Having a sensor connected to your skull this system can meassure several waves emitting from the brain, also called brainwaves. The Idea is to combine this system with some camera based monitoring system that will watch a test subject while sleeping and recording the corresponding brainwaves for later analysis of brainactivity and body movement. Other use cases do exist, this was the only one i could come up with that involves sleeping in the office ;)

bug screening helper
