Brainstorming about Continuous Delivery in SLE

a project by pgeorgiadis

Hackweek is here! I think this is the best week of the year to sit down altogether and exchange ideas and suggestions. The main topic is Automation. The goal is that many of these ideas might help various teams within SUSE to engage their business reasons better in defining key expectations and improve the quality of our software products. No fear of change -- the aim is to propose a modern pipeline in a less-invasive manner. Everybody has an idea, everybody has a voice! Brainstorming together can be useful to many different roles, including testers, analysts and developers. Let's have a chit-chat and write down some of those; Hopefully we will come up with plenty of tips on how to organise testing activities better. > Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is a success. - Henry Ford

DRM driver for USB-based SiS graphics cards

a project by tdz

Back in the late 90s to early 2000s, SiS graphics chips were fairly common and found in many low-end devices. Today, the chips are still capable enough for simple graphics needs, but the graphics cards were on PCI and AGP buses. They are not usable in modern computers. However, there exist USB-based graphics cards with a SiS 315 graphics chip. Those are around on Ebay et al [1] and easily usable with current computers. I already do have a driver for the old PCI-based SiS drivers and have long been struggling to find something useful to do with it. Converting it to serve USB devices would finally make it useful.

Get to know SMP on x86 systems better

an idea by alix82

Project Description

In order to learn how operating systems work on a x86 chip, I had written (long ago) a toy OS based on code found on osdev wiki [1]. It allowed me to understand the interaction between the OS and the x86 hardware, and to some extent how the OS handles userspace (I used newlib for some userspace programs). The single-processor OS code later served me well as a base for a course about operating systems I taught at the university.

Welcome to SUSE (Quiz game)

a project by oscar-barrios

This hack week project is an Unity3D app, available in Android, IOS and HTML5 platforms. The idea is to welcome new joiners inviting them to play this game. The game will have questions about SUSE, the new joiners will need to ask other SUSE employees for the correct answer, socializing and learning SUSE culture at the same time. When they win the game an e-mail will be sent to a concrete e-mail address (it might be someone from facilities) and they will receive a small gift as Welcome Pack. For instance, they could receive the small chameleon or a t-shirt.

SUSE Manager salt minion Provisioning/Upgrade

a project by dvosburg

Provisioning works with Autoyast/Cobbler for traditional clients, with profiles to enable major version upgrades. The goal is to offer that in a predictable way that can be scheduled and automated for salt minions. Salt minions pose a different challenge, and we would like to enable a reboot into the upgrade without needing PXE not traditional client to enable it.

Support for DRM platform drivers

an invention by tdz

This project could get us rid of the last fbdev drivers we're stil shipping: efifb and vesafb. Platform drivers handle hardware that is not auto-detected, but somehow there. For graphics this would be VGA, VESA, or UEFI framebuffers. In SUSE Linux, we currently support VESA and UEFI with fbdev drivers. Those load early in the boot process and maintain graphics hardware until the actual driver takes over.

Btrfs OSD for Lustre

an idea by jeff_mahoney

Modern Lustre supports compelling features like snapshots but it requires OSDs to use ZFS in order to implement it. Since ZFS and Linux licensing is incompatible, it's not really a supportable solution. This project has an aim to implement Lustre OSDs using Btrfs underneath them, leveraging the btrfs feature set to enable the features that ZFS-based OSDs provide now in a supportable way.

dmidecode: no more open-coded printfs

a project by jdelvare

There's a long standing request to extend the output of dmidecode to something that would be machine-readable. Something like an XML or JSON-based format. Unfortunately this can't be implemented right now because the output of dmidecode is generated by open-coded printfs as the DMI table is being parsed, with no intermediate structures nor temporary buffers. While implementing a machine-parseable output is out of scope for a single hack week, let's remember that even the longest journey starts with a single footstep. I would like to try and rewrite the 5200 lines of code of dmidecode in such a way that printing the output would be somewhat separated from parsing the DMI table and done by a limited set of dedicated functions. Alternative output formats could later hook into such functions.

Neutron driver for Cilium

Build a minetest server inside SUSE network

An introduction from minetest website: " Minetest is a near-infinite-world block sandbox game and a game engine, inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft, and the like. Minetest is available natively for Windows, OS X, GNU/Linux, Android, and FreeBSD. It is Free/Libre and Open Source Software, released under the LGPL 2.1 or later. " In short, MineTest is a Free and Open Source re-implementation of MineCraft, but it provide many flexible features compare MineCraft. It's not only a game but also a framework for developers to extend so to make their own worlds.

File system block allocation algorithms comparison and analysis

In the past, some customers ever complained that OCFS2 file system performance went down when listing a big directory (e.g. include 400k files).

Then, I want to look at the current mainstream file systems (e.g. EXT4, XFS, etc) block allocation algorithms in this hack week, compare and analysis these algorithms advantages/disadvantages.

k3s is a lightweight distribution of Kubernetes designed for IoT and Edge Computing. It works like k8s and it has a smaller package size ( < 40M) so it can be easily deployed. k3s is also optimized for arm64 and armv7 so it can work on ARM machines such as Raspberry Pi or AWS A1 server. In this project I am going to study basic concepts of k3s and understand how it works on ARM platforms.
