Aloha openSUSE Users!
Testing-Group-Logo
Now is an excellent time to help openSUSE! If you have openSUSE running on your system, all you have to do is add your hardware to the openSUSE Hardware compatibility List. Add your pheriphials like printers, scanners and webcams. Or add internal stuff like graphics and sound cards, mother boards, wifi cards and every thing else from your netbooks, notebooks, desktops and workstations!

IPv6 Badge

Yesterday was World IPv6 Day and openSUSE participated in it. We hope the experiment was as successful for the other participants as it was for us!

Here is a short status update from the openSUSE infrastructure. openSUSE has currently two major server locations and we tested IPv6 at both separately.  Note that there are more openSUSE infrastructure locations, including the server which runs the popular planet.opensuse.org (which supports IPv6 as well now)!

The openSUSE kernel developers have recently announced that the kernel git trees have moved to kernel.opensuse.org/git, providing better reliability than gitorious. Gitorious had trouble with cloning the nearly 1GB repository sometimes, but the developers will keep syncing to gitorious so nothing should break. Moreover, kernel.opensuse.org offers an easy interface to install openSUSE kernels on a variety of openSUSE releases.

More things are planned for kernel.opensuse.org including the introduction LXR. cgit was already added during the writing of this article! (more…)

Sorry, but we expect our main mailing-lists server (lists.opensuse.org) and our features server (features.opensuse.org) to stay down for some more minutes than expected: the systems reported a file system corruption and running a file system check right now.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
