Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client. There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.

Work on my OBS packages

Updated 9 months ago. 4 hacker ♥️.


an invention by e_bischoff

Twopence is (will be) a remote execution engine for tests, able to run tests in virtual machines and real hardware through various means of communication : virtio for KVM / QEmu, ssh on top of libssh, serial lines. This library can be called from shell and ruby wrappers. While it is already functional (and used), it still needs polishing, stabilizing, and extending. It is also planned to integrate it with Pennyworth (project Machinery) and let it go fully Open Source.

Resistance is Futile - Using zypper to "upgrade" CentOS/RHEL to openSUSE/SLES

a project by RBrownSUSE

zypper is magic

A number of experiments suggest that it may be feasible to run zypper from an openSUSE 'live' media against a 'foreign' RPM based OS installation (eg. CentOS) and then 'zypper dup' to openSUSE

Crowbar on openSUSE

a project by tboerger

In order to build a community around crowbar, our cloud installer, we need to get this running on openSUSE as well. So let's find some time to move the packaging of crowbar from the ibs to the obs! In the end, there should be working packages in

"emerge" for rpm/SUSE

Sonic Pi on SUSE

an invention by wstephenson

Sonic Pi is a live-coded software synthesiser for teaching computing via music. It originates on the Raspberry Pi but should be on mainstream Linux too. This project is to clean it up by removing Raspbian hacks, package it and its dependencies and get it running nicely on openSUSE. Sonic Pi uses Ruby to control the synthesiser, and the frontend is written in Qt.

Bootstrap Maven in OBS

a project by a_faerber

Apache Maven is a build tool used by many Java projects, which is incompatible with OBS in that it tries to download binary dependencies from the Internet. Several people have in the past years tried to somehow bootstrap Maven and failed. My new proposed approach is a Maven, patched to obtain packages from a filesystem location, and packages with .jar based -bootstrap.spec variant plus source-based build for properly modeling dependencies in OBS. Unlike the SUSE Manager team's work I am trying to rebuild those .jars from sources. Where necessary I am patching dependency versions to the latest sources/jars packaged.

Parallella: Epiphany packaging for openSUSE

an invention by a_faerber

The Parallella is an SBC with Xilinx Zynq SoC and 16-core Epiphany-III co-processor. I had contributed a device tree for the Parallella to v3.17 (with a network/clock issue just reported by Olof Johansson to be investigated).
