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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

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 Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

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.

rinit

an invention by dspinella

Project Description

rinit is an init written in Rust. It offers a valid alternative to systemd for PID 1 and service management. It uses the supervision to manage long running programs (deamons), log everything to files (no binary log interface) and provides an easy to use command line interface. rinit is already working and able to spawn services and handle their dependencies.

Improve Full-Disk-Encryption support in openSUSE

an idea by ismaell

Project Description

The main goal is to enable the use of plain dm-crypt (as btrfs makes LVM2 unnecessary overhead) and a separate ephemeral key for the swap partition.

Enable full-disk-encryption key sharing for bootloader -> kernel

an idea by ismaell

Project Description

Full disk encryption currently requires each stage to gain knowledge of the keys independently, which means asking the user or bundling the key (in the initramfs).

Add MBR binary format support to the fq command line tool

a project by tobilehman

fq is an open source command tool used for formatting and inspecting binary data. It has a modular architecture that allows for adding support for all sorts of different binary data (e.g. MP4, BZIP2, ELF, etc.) While working on a legacy booting issue for Harvester HCI, I learned about the format of the legacy MBR (master boot record). I started adding support for it in this PR, but I haven't finished it yet. I am interested in better understanding the ways computers boot up so I can better understand what goes wrong when people try to boot Harvester (or relatedly, openSUSE).
