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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.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

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.

Image generation AI in container using Radeon GPU

Uyuni test suite improvements

a project by dgedon

Project Description

Uyuni is the upstream community project from which the very popular SUSE Manager is derived. It uses its own QE test suite wirtten in Cucumber and Ruby. Currently the Uyuni test suite runs with Ruby 2.5.9 which is EOL since 2021. This is because the most current Ruby version for openSUSE Leap 15.4, which the test suite controller runs on, is still Ruby 2.5.9. Updating the Ruby version allows us to modernize the test suite code base and to use more recent Ruby gems that do not support the old Ruby version anymore.

How software creation process can save energy and CO2 emissions

Everything we do in SUSE requires a certain amount of energy. This energy has a cost and it causes also a certain amount of CO2 emissions. In particular, as Kernel QA team, we run Kernel testing pretty often causing energy consumption that could be saved by introducing optimizations inside the LTP testing.
