Leap 15.1 Beta Pizza Party

February 22nd, 2019 by

Prosciutto, anchovy and onion pizza.

Hunt for bugs & have a lot of fun!

The release manager for openSUSE Leap announced that Leap 15.1 entered its Beta phase this week and that means it’s time for a Beta Pizza Party. Yeah!.

Leap’s Beta phase is a rolling beta until it’s official release. Once released, it will begin its maintenance phase.

To celebrate the Beta phase, why not have a Pizza Party and test the openSUSE Leap 15.1 Beta.

Geeko in Nuremberg will have a Beta Pizza Party on March 1, 2019 during lunch. Any Beta tester in the Nuremberg area are welcome to attend. Just email ddemaio (@) opensuse.org.

If there’s no party near you, organize your own. Be sure to check the wiki page! Pick a local pizza place or get some delivered to your home or office; invite friends and colleagues and put your party on the wiki. A new openSUSE user may show up! If you are unsure of how to do it, read this.

Download the Beta…

Beta’s of Leap 15.1 are available at https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/testing. Install it on a VM, virtualbox or on your hardware. Report or help fix any problems you encounter.

The Prusa i3 is a dream for every Geeko that wants to explore 3D printing. Print your own toys, spareparts or christmas decoration. And best of all the RepRaps not only work well with openSUSE, but they are open source! The 700€ price tag might not come with a red bow, but a RepRap will have a Geeko feeling like a child.

A Kodi Media Center

WeTek could have Geekos vegging on the couch after tweaking with configurations to get the latest entertainment system. WeTek Play support booting of Linux XBMC or OpenELEC directly from Micro SD card. Keep WeTek Android running while Linux XBMC or OpenELEC run directly from Micro SD. Geekos can expand the usability of the system. The price has yet to be announced and the product has yet to be released, but Geekos won’t mind waiting to be the first to get a WeTek when it does come out, which should be next week according to our inside sources.
