Compatibilux (Game launcher for old and new games and applications)

a project by fos

There are several game launchers for Linux already (like Lutris or GR-lida), but none of them is focused on compatibility with old Linux games or other ancient native applications. At the same time it is getting more and more difficult to get those old applications to run on modern Linux distributions. This is a learning project for me, so the goal is not to extend any existing GUI frontend, but get familiar with various techniques and see how far I can get without any previous knowledge.

Rewrite transactional-update in C++

a project by fos

transactional-update, the application to update read-only systems such as openSUSE MicroOS and openSUSE Kubic and the Transactional Server installations of openSUSE Leap, openSUSE Tumbleweed and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, evolved from a POC to a fully fledged solution - and is currently completely written in Bash. This has been working really well in the past, but is gradually reaching its limits, especially when thinking about supporting additional file systems or ports to other Linux distributions - yes, we have a huge interest in other distributions adopting our technology. A C++ version would simplify those abstractions, but would it also make maintenance of the complete application easier? Check that as part of a POC and refresh C++ knowledge on the way there.

Preserve SUSE's history

a project by fos

Project Description

SUSE dissolved an old warehouse, containing lots and lots of boxes with old SUSE / SuSE / S.u.S.E software. All of those boxes were originally going to be dumped in March 2021, which could be prevented.

Develop a better frontend for the virtual SUSE Museum

an invention by fos

Project Description

Last year's project Preserve SUSE's history revealed a huge amount of old SUSE boxes and other stock. Together with the SUSE Museum (currently still boxed while there are still construction works going on in the new office) the idea was to present all of these treasures also in digital form.

Offline GPS navigation for Bangle.js 2 watch

a project by fos

Project Description

The Open Source watch Bangle.js 2 has built in GPS, so let's try to use that for offline navigation (i.e. generate a list of waypoints in the Bangle.js App Loader and show the next event (e.g. "Turn left into Example St. in 80 meters").
