Remote access to Viessmann Trimatik MC

a project by tsbogend

Trimatik MC is an older heating control from Viessmann. It has no supported digital interface for remote access, but I found at least two ways to get access to sensor data like various temperatures and state of relay contacts. One way is to use the so called remote control the other use the clock timer. This project will use the latter way, because the hardware adaption is much easier and and all four timer channels could be controlled as well. Remote access will be done via an ESP32, which emulates the clock timer and gets/pushes data via WIFI. Current prototype is able is able to monitor traffic between the original clock timer and the heating control.

Improved mhvtl package: fix the out-of-stream kernel driver

an idea by lee_duncan

The mhvtl tape library emulation package was originally based on the scsi_debug kernel driver, but has long since grown more complicated, with the mhvtl,ko kernel module now passing almost all SCSI commands to user-level daemons via a clunky device interface. It does this with an out-of-band driver, since the design is so bad it would never be accepted upstream. And with the 4.20 kernel release, it has broken yet again, which is par for the course with out of band drivers.

Out-of-the-box SPD support

an invention by jdelvare

In order to see the SPD (detailed memory information) data, the user currently has to manually load the needed kernel driver. Which driver to load depends on the memory type. Depending on the driver user, the devices may even have to be instantiated manually and this is a non-trivial multi-step task. Plus you need to be root to do it. I would like to attempt to automatize all this at least in the most common and simple cases like Intel x86 desktop. The idea would be to figure out the memory type and the I2C address of the SPD EEPROMs based on DMI data. If the DMI data is of good quality then it should be possible to automatically figure out which driver to use and to instantiate the devices at boot time.

Differentiate Microsoft virtualization types (WSL1/WSL2/Azure/Hyper-V) in SUSEConnect

People are interested in Linux on Windows via WSL, especially given the new fully virtualized Linux kernel in WSL 2. It's interesting to know whether registered SUSE installations might be running in WSL as opposed to other Microsoft virtualization platforms, but the current approach taken by SUSEConnect (the client for SUSE Customer Center) does not permit this.
By inspecting the contents of /proc/, it is possible to tell these platforms apart. This project aims to enhance SUSEConnect to do so.

At SUSE Manager and Uyuni we use right now a set of bash scripts called sumaform-test-runner to run terraform and cucumber, send notifications and store cucumber results.

Besides it forces us to have credentials hardcoded at the main.tf files, which is a huge problem for making a public CI for Uyuni.
