Tumbleweed gets Firefox 42, Machinery ready for Leap

November 12th, 2015 by

Tumbleweed-black-greenTumbleweed

Two releases snapshots in Tumbleweed brought a new Linux kernel and a web browser update for Mozilla.

Firefox updated to version 42 in the 20151110 snapshot and the 20151106 snapshot updated the Linux kernel to 4.3.

Firefox 42 removed some obsolete patches and had some Login Manager improvements.

Wine updated to version 1.7.54 and improved video decoding; major Turkish translations were in the update as well. Btrfs had several updates in the 20151110 snapshot so expect big improvements to the filesystem and its usage.

Tumbleweed has branding that has yet to be implemented, so contributors are more than welcome to work on including it in Tumbleweed.

Leap

For those using openSUSE Leap 42.1 and sysadmins managing several computers, Machinery can now be used with openSUSE’s latest release Leap 42.1. For those who are unfamiliar with the Machinery Project, check it out. It’s a great command line tool that focuses on system analysis, automation and tool integration.

Being able to use Machinery with openSUSE is just one of several reasons for developers, sysadmins and desktop users to use openSUSE’s two distributions Tumbleweed and openSUSE Leap 42.1.

For more information one how to use Machinery, visit the github page.

    Hi

    After reading this news I have just updated machinery from the systemsmanagement repo, and the message is:

    leapserver:~ # machinery export-autoyast leap_base –autoyast-dir=/tmp/my_migration
    Export of operating system ‘openSUSE Leap 42.1 42.1 (x86_64)’ is not supported.

    Eagerly waiting to use it on Leap :-)
