Better Boot Screens with BPAEngine (Plymouth)

a project by mdeniz

This project is about hacking and pushing further an engine called BPAEngine written in plymouth that enable people to develop better boot screens without much effort. Having those new boot screens in our distributions would be great. Plymouth is a "basic" scripting language for developing boot screens (See some Fedora examples running). Our openSUSE distributions have their own plymouth themes packaged on the branding-openSUSE package. And in my opinion they are very basic..., just a dot moving in 3 positions with the nice background and a logo.

Create a DRM driver for Matrox desktop cards

an invention by tdz

(was: Create a DRM driver for Matrox G200) Even after 20 years, the Matrox G200 series is still an excellent 2d graphics card. Unfortunately, there's only an fbdev driver and a user-space driver. Both are obsolete, as modern Linux uses the DRM framework for managing graphics cards. There already is a DRM driver for the G200 server series. This driver is under-maintained and doesn't work with desktop chips.

SUSE incarnation of the Party Parrot

an invention by rsimai

The Parrot seems to have many fans meanwhile, in particular since we're running Rocket.chat at SUSE. Some may find these emoticons distracting, some find it just cool and I would certainly love to see something like the Partyparrot but as a "SUSE parrot", probably someone manages to make the SUSE Geeko move in a similar fashion, as party_geeko. Finally I'd love to see this uploaded to the cultofthepartyparrot.com under "Party Guests". Because clearly the Geeko insists! :-) Bonus: do the same with TUX for total ssǝuızɐɹɔ

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.

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.

Learn DaVinci Resolve

an invention by psimons

Project Description

I've been using open-source video editing software like Shotcut before and I used to be pretty happy with it. Nowadays, however, I need more sophisticated workflows that allow me to process n-log video, do color grading, synchronize video and audio from multiple sources, have better looking effects, and so on. I've reached the point where Shotcut just can't do what I would like it to.

Create a DRM driver for VGA video cards

a project by tdz

Yes, those VGA video cards. The goal of this project is to implement a DRM graphics driver for such devices. While actual hardware is hard to obtain or even run today, qemu emulates VGA output. VGA has a number of limitations, which make this project interesting.
