Rocket.Chat Protocol Plugin for Thunderbird

an idea by mook_work

While SUSE still runs mainly on IRC, we still need to interact with others, some of which occurs on Slack and Rocket.Chat. I'd like to have one chat application with a good overview of all the various channels I'm in, across the different servers. Sadly, Pidgin isn't a choice here because they don't have a built in web browser, which is required for SAML logins with Rocket.Chat.

Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

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.

Automatic rotation film developer for analogue film

an idea by suntorytimed

I would like to build a rotating film developer like the old Ilford Cibachrome by using a stepper motor, Raspberry Pi Zero WH and some additional motor controls. For this a 3D printer might be useful to create some of the parts. All of the work should be open sourced, including the schematics.

Floppy disk controller/drive emulator

an idea by jmoellers

I am into retro-computing and one of my treasures is an SB180FX microcomputer: an HD64180 CPU running at blazing 9.something MHz and having a whopping 512kB RAM! The "machine" has an NCR5380 SCSI host-adapter and a 9266 FDC which supports up to 4 floppy drives.

Port some classic game to Linux

a project by MDoucha

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

Migrate suntorytimed/resourcespace container to an openSUSE base

a project by suntorytimed

Project Description

For quite some time I am providing a ResourceSpace container on Docker Hub. It is meanwhile pulled about 234K times but unfortunately still based on Ubuntu. Meanwhile I have updated the base to Ubuntu 20.04, but I would like to move it to openSUSE instead. With ResourceSpace 9.5 coming out soon I see a possibility of introducing this switch. Enno Gotthold also did a great job of packaging ResourceSpace on OBS, so this could be used as a starting point for the container.

Build kdump initrd without dracut

a project by ptesarik

Project Description

The kdump plumbing is implemented as a dracut module. The original intention was to reuse the logic that dracut uses to deal with storage and network, but it turns out that kdump needs are often very different, so a lot of time is spent on avoiding dracut features that are undesirable.

Performance profile and possibly improve Jitsi web client

an invention by mkoutny

Project Description

I run openSUSE TW and FF with i7-5600U Intel CPU. Calls with ~4 (video) participants work but my CPU load is approaching number of cores. In slightly bigger calls (>=6 participants) the CPU load was insufficient and audio packets were being dropped. I'd like learn more about webrtc video streams in order to reduce the client's CPU work or make it more adaptive when running with limited resources.

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.
