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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

Port some classic game to Linux

a project by MDoucha

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

early stage kdump support

a project by mbrugger

Project Description

When we experience a early boot crash, we are not able to analyze the kernel dump, as user-space wasn't able to load the crash system. The idea is to make the crash system compiled into the host kernel (think of initramfs) so that we can create a kernel dump really early in the boot process.

zypper plugin for discovering reverse dependencies

a project by bzoltan1

Often when we test maintenance updates or when we decide to push an update for a package we want to know what that change may cause. Right now it is really difficult to figure out what package depends on a given package.

Typo-forgiving zypper search plugin

a project by cdywan

Sometimes you search for a package, and you don't find it because you're not typing it right. Of course there's regex support behind the scenes but it requires conscious effort to make use of.

openSUSE 12.1 DVD Art

I have three hundred and eighty four openSUSE 12.1 DVDs. Given 12.1 went end of life almost ten years ago, it seems likely these DVDs are useless. Rather than toss them out I've decided to try to turn them into some form of art.

Use a container storage to store the OS system root

a project by dcassany

Project Description

Store the OS root-tree on a container storage. The idea is to build a minimal golang tool capable to init a container storage to a custom location, store remote OCI images in there and mount them into a custom mountpoint. Next step is to craft a dracut based initrd including such a tool to mount the OS at boot. Finally, craft a disk with an EFI partition including the kernel, initrd and systemd-boot.
