Package proper cross-compilers

a project by rguenther

openSUSE lacks useable cross-compilers to glibc systems. This is the attempt to provide those, most important a cross-compiler for arm/aarch64.

ALSA Pure Digital Power Amplifier

a project by duwe

Building on top of <a href=",%20Rev2&quot;&gt;Rouslan Dimitrov's Microcontroller Class D Amplifier</a>, I developed the idea to feed the power amplifier with PCM data directly. Rouslan does some dithering and noise shaping, but I'm convinced that proper interpolation would sound better. The ATtiny is too slow to do even cubic interpolation so I'll move that into the host.

make openSUSE working on Sony Xperia Tablet Z

a project by sleep_walker

Look once again on Xperia Tablet Z and try to have there openSUSE running natively as alternative operating system. I'm able to work on that only during my vacations or hackweeks so

openSUSE 13.2 ARM hackathon

a project by algraf

openSUSE 13.2 is taking shape on ARM, but we need to make sure we smoothen its edges to make an actual release out of it. The goal of this project is to make sure all devices we should run on actually work and that the last few packages necessary for productive use of ARM devices work properly on 13.2.

openSUSE for Firefly-RK3288

a project by a_faerber

The Firefly-RK3288 is the first SBC with the Rockchip RK3288 SoC, the first available chip with Cortex-A17 cores (32-bit ARMv7). I received such a board just in time for Hackweek Interstellar and will be looking into booting an upstream kernel with openSUSE 13.2/Factory rootfs.

openSUSE for IFC6540

a project by a_faerber

The Inforce Computing IFC6540 is an SBC with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC (32-bit ARMv7). I had previously brought up openSUSE on the IFC6410. A week before Hackweek Interstellar I got the IFC6540 to boot on serial console using the upstream-based Linaro integration branch, up to searching for the rootfs. Since USB and SATA support were still missing, my goal will be to prepare a MicroSD based rootfs to complete the bringup.

KVM for Nvidia Jetson TK1

a project by a_faerber

The Nvidia Jetson TK1 is an SBC with Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC (quad-core Cortex-A15, 32-bit ARMv7). I have openSUSE running on the Jetson TK1, but KVM is currently not usable as the CPUs are not booted in HYP mode. Thierry Reding of Nvidia has some work-in-progress for U-Boot and upstream kernel that I would like to test.

Bring up Linux on Optimus Board (Allwinner A80)

a project by a_faerber

The Allwinner Tech Optimus Board by Merrii is the evaluation board for the Allwinner A80 SoC with big.LITTLE Cortex-A15/-A7 configuration (32-bit ARMv7). The sources leaked from Allwinner contain GPL violations in U-Boot and Linux kernel and therefore won't easily build with openSUSE's armhf gcc (binaries seem to be softfp).

Experiment with no-mmu Linux (STM32F429I-DISCO)

an invention by a_faerber

A broad range of ARMv7-A boards have been enabled in openSUSE already. I would like to complement my experiences by bringing up Linux on an ARMv7-M board, the STM32F429I discovery board, featuring a Cortex-M4 and 8 MB SDRAM. As first step I would build and deploy an image based on instructions from the Internet, using downstream U-Boot and kernel and known-working binary arm-uclinuxeabi compiler toolchain. As preparation I have already packaged the genromfs tool.

Bare Metal OpenQA

a project by algraf

Today OpenQA mostly runs on virtual machines, but it can get really tricky to find bugs triggered by real hardware. There are only few interfaces required to interact with a machine though: 1) HDMI<br>

[ARM] Ceph on AArch64

an idea by algraf

Octopuses have many ARMs, so we should definitely allow them to run on them too! Today, we don't have working Ceph packages for AArch64, but already solid interest from customers asking us about it. It would be great to be able to give them something to play with.

[ARM] Bootstrap ILP32 on AArch64

a project by algraf

Some customers are still stuck in a world of 32bit. On ARM64, we have two options for those poor folks: 1) Run applications in the legacy ARMv7 instruction set

ARM64 fastmodel

a project by gqjiang

ARM64 is become more popular on different markets, but obviously lots of pepople didn't have the hardware platform, and fastmodel is helpful for people to play with ARM64 environment, furthermore, we can run different software platform on it, such as Cloud, HA, Virt and OpenStack.

update+fix samsung exynos/arndale arm board boot

a project by bmwiedemann

We had old arndale images working, but those were based on openSUSE-12.x which is now long obsolete and bad (e.g. missing security updates). Thus we want to use a more modern u-boot and kernel, but those currently trigger a kernel panic.

Improve the Firebird Emu Experience on android

a project by favogt

Firebird Emu is a third-party multi-platform emulator of the ARM-based TI-Nspire™ calculators. Currently it does not run that well on Android and iOS, which I want to change during this hackweek.

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

an idea by ldevulder

The Khadas 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!).

Improving the Security of OpenPGP USB Token with a Secure Chip

a project by biergaizi

OpenPGP Card is an ISO/IEC 7816-4 compatible smartcard that is integrated with many OpenPGP functions, including signature, encryption, and authentication. It provides an trustful computing environment isolated from the host computer, to guard one's private keys from attacks and exposures. ZetiControl in Germany is the first manufacturer of OpenPGP Card based on BasicCard platform. Since then, compatible USB tokens have also been manufactured, such as Yubikey and Nitrokey. Currently for compatible USB tokens, there are two approaches of OpenPGP Card implementation:

Add u-boot support for banana-pi r2

a project by mbrugger

Banana-pi R2 has quite a good upstream support in the kernel, but lacks a u-boot support. The idea is to sit down at get working on that. This would be a good starting point to get u-boot support for other Mediatek SoCs as well.

work on sunxi a64 cpufreq driver (for teres-1, pine64)

an idea by mbrugger

With the teres-1 [1] laptop we have a first arm64 device we could use as end-users. Much work to run mainline kernel + u-boot was done already. But power consumption of the laptop is not optimal (~2 hours of battery life time). The idea is to support cpufreq for the A64 SoC upstream, which would enable the teres-1, pine64 and pinebook to run more power efficient. up to now it seems nobody is working on the driver [2].

Port MicroOS to the Gameshell from Clockwork Pi

a project by aplanas

The Gameshell is a small game console based on AllWinner R16 (Cortex-A7, IIRC the same CPU that the RPi2). Currently is supporting Debian, and some community member ported ArchLinux on it. The goal of the project is to port the openSUSE MicroOS distribution into the device, providing a transactional upgrade process for a canonical IoT architecture. In the process I expect to learn about ARM7, uBoot and some kernel hacking.

Mainline Sunplus Plus1 SP7021 kernel for Banana Pi F2S

a project by a_faerber

The recent Banana Pi BPI-F2S board features a new Arm SoC SP7021 by Sunplus, which is not yet supported in mainline Linux. Prior to Hackweek I had prepared UART and interrupt controller drivers and Device Tree for Sunplus SP7021's Arm Cortex-A7 cores: GitHub branch f2s-next
