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.

Project Maxfeld: Cultural Onboarding to counter unknown unknowns

a project by mfeilner

I promised to start this project way earlier, but I think Hackweek will be a great time to make a start. The project once was called $BABELFISH, later "Rumsfeld", to honor the creator of the "Unknown unknowns" meme, now it's name is Maxfeld.

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!

Learn Rust by writing an IRC bouncer

a project by IGonzalezSosa

A good way of getting to know a new programming language is... writing some code. So although there are some good IRC bouncers, like ZNC, we want to write another one just for learning. But why an IRC bouncer? Because it is not rocket science, but it implies network communication (acting as client and as server at the same time), handling concurrent connections... in a few words: it sounds fun.

Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

The motivation for that comes mainly from my need for a simple suse manager that i can easily run at home without the massive overhead involved in suse manager setup. Also since i mainly need to manage opensuse machines most of which are tumbleweed, suse managers repository model does not really work well in that case.

Both are obsolete, as modern Linux uses the DRM framework for managing graphics cards. There already is a DRM driver for the G200 server series. This driver is under-maintained and doesn't work with desktop chips.

Automate fstest runs using SUSE Engineering Cloud

a project by jankara

Currently, each filesystem developer does his fstests runs (a testsuite for regression-testing of filesystems) on his dedicated test machine, on Orthos machine, ... This not only means duplication of efforts to automate this testing but also leads to inefficient use of resources (sometimes the test machine is just idle, sometimes you would need more tests to run in parallel to speed up development). The goal of this effort is to use SUSE Engineering Cloud to implement fire-and-forget fstests runs where you specify kernel to test (fetched from git tree or so), fstests configs to run, and then just pick up test results later on...

Storage War Games

Eventually, we settled with keeping the name and changing the scope.
