Port a fake signal optimization to kGraft

a project by mbenes

We currently work on a consistency model for upstream livepatching infrastructure. We use something called a fake signal to speed up a finalization of the patching process. I'll port the implementation to kGraft in SLES which should allow to remove immediate patching since it has recently proved to be problematic...

Multiqueue ramdisk

a project by hreinecke

There is a ramdisk block device (brd), and there is a null multiqueue device (nullblk). The one can do I/O, but doesn't use multiqueue, and the other does multiqueue but cannot do I/O. So the idea is to have a new multiqueue ramdisk block device (ramblk?), which can do both. Would be most useful for testing multiqueue.

Dive into drbd8.4.x and drbd9

a project by wanghaisu

DRBD refers to block devices designed as a building block to form high availability (HA) clusters.Also possible to combine multiple devices driver for Linux(MD) and the network block device(NBD) to achieve similar functionality. DRBD is done by mirroring a whole block device via an assigned network. DRBD can be understood as network based raid-1. Only two nodes are supported in 8.4.x. For the drbd9(dev in RC phase), multiple nodes can be supported as well. Diving into it and do hacks.

Simplify packaging our books

a project by keichwa

Our books are also available as regular software packages such as 'sles-manuals_en'. There is a semi-private script that I use to generate the requisites (fetch the old version from the BS, tar the XML sources with daps, update .spec and .changes, etc.) and to submit the results to the BS.

Tumbleweed as a Server OS?

a project by RBrownSUSE

My home server, and my other box hosting https://sysrich.co.uk are both in need of a bit of a refresh While I could be nice and conservative and pick an openSUSE regular release, I'm actually considering using openSUSE Tumbleweed, and fully embracing the 'Servers as Cattle' concept

Chromium/Chrome extension for SSL pinning

an idea by thardeck

Most browsers have more than 100 CA certificates (for example Firefox ~176) and everyone of them can sign certificates for any website. So if anyone of them is hacked, forced by law or just corrupt a man-in-the-middle attack is possible on any SSL connection.

Google Hangouts killer: WebRTC-based video conferencing system

a project by ancorgs

We have some internal systems for videoconferencing like Big Blue Button or OpenMeetings. But in my experience none of them can compare to Google Hangouts, which is still the best free (as in free beer) alternative for videoconferencing with integrated screen sharing. While implementing an alternative to Sqwiggle on previous hackweek, I discovered Janus, a lightweight WebRTC gateway that proved to be a quite capable tool to implement video applications.

Simple user interface for head mounted displays

Wireless mesh network

a project by chuller

Using an arduino nano, a rf23b (http://www.hoperf.com/rf/fsk_module/RFM23BP.htm) wireless module (or anything like it) and a solar panel to build a mesh network node that can be used to quickly deploy wireless networks. The connection between the nodes will be serial, a endpoint will have an additional wlan module connected so it will be possible to use the mesh network for normal wlan enabled devices.

LaTeX binary numbering

an idea by bmwiedemann

LaTeX can already do (arabic) decimal and roman numbering for sections/chapters/pages/enums etc, but for proper geekiness of one's papers/presentations, it should be able to do it in binary digits. This mini-hackweek project is about finding out and documenting how to do that in the easiest way.
