Setup E-Mail notification about new or changed SAP Notes

a project by AngelaBriel

Try to get back an automatic email notification about new or changed SAP Notes. Since SAP has closed down some of their internal servers, which hosted an unofficial database/API to the SAP Notes, the nice email notification service of the SAP LinuxLab is terminated.

netlink interface for ethtool

a project by mkubecek

There seems to be an overall consensus that the ioctl interface used by ethtool is a poor design as it's inflexible, error prone and notoriously hard to extend. It should clearly be replaced by netlink and obsoleted. Unfortunately not much actual work has been done in that direction until this project started. The project started in Hackweek 16 (fall 2017) and has been worked on since, both in Hackweek 17-19 and outside. First two parts of kernel implementation are in mainline since 5.6-rc1, first part of userspace implementation (ethtool utility) has been submitted to upstream at the end of Hackweek 19 (2020-02-16).

openSUSE/SLE/Mainline U-boot for some not-yet-supported ARM64 boards

an idea by ldevulder

The Khadas VIM (http://khadas.com/vim/) is an arm64 DIY Set-Top-Box based on Amlogic P212 reference board that use S905X SoC. As Odroid-C2 (based on S905 SoC) is in the mainline U-boot, it should be possible to adapt it for the Khadas VIM (of course a lot of work are needed!).

grab this: openSUSE beta test program and web application

a project by lnussel

openSUSE Leap 42.3 goes for a rolling release model with automated openQA tests. That covers only so much though. We need manual testing too. In previous releases a google document spread sheet was used to coordinate and track the efforts.That's probably not the best method anymore. Come up with ideas and a prototype of how manual testing could be guided, tracked, visualized for a rolling development distribution with volunteers testing.

Upstreaming of mediatek helios board

an idea by mbrugger

The only Mediatek "hacker" board available is from 96 Boards [1]. Unfortunately up to now there is nearly no mainline support. Idea would be to improve this situation. The idea would be to get the pin-controller merged first and then hopefully most of the other stuff can be just added (fingers crossed...)

fun hardware peripherials

a project by michals

There are many fun peripherials that you can connect to a RPi but PC users are not left out either * attiny85 <a href="http://www.banggood.com/ATTINY85-Mini-Usb-MCU-Development-Board-For-Arduino-p-971122.html&quot;&gt;&lt;img height="48" src="http://img2.banggood.com/thumb/large/2014/xiemeijuan/03/SKU207366/SKU207366-3.jpg&quot;/&gt;&lt;/a> has SPI and i2c interface so could be possibly used as USB<->i2c or USB<->SPI bridge. Unfortunately, the USB support needs some non-standard timings so there is quite a bit of integration and debugging needed.

Another try on minimalistic C widget library

a project by metan

I've attempted this several times already and each attempt had different shortcomings. I'm kind of curious about how exactly will I fail this time. And it looks like I haven't failed this time.

Enlightenment Themes

a project by simotek

I have several themes in progress, they all need lots of work before they could be used with openSUSE. * The gtk people keep changing things so the gtk theme I use to match my enlightenment theme also needs fixing.

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.

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

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.
