GNU Compiler Collection 6 Removed from Tumbleweed

October 19th, 2017 by

Two openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots were released this week and the Open Build Service is warming up after last weekend’s scheduled power outage.

Since the power interruption, OBS has been running a little slower, but that didn’t stop the developers from getting out snapshots of new software.

The latest snapshot, 20171017, made a significant change regarding the GNU Compiler Collection; GCC 6 is no longer available in Tumbleweed. A patch for the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures deemed KRACK or CVE-2017-15361 also made its way into Tumbleweed. The cross-platform library Simple DirectMedia Layer, which is designed to make it easy to write multimedia software, such as games and emulators, added support for many game controllers, including the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller with the update to SDL2 2.0.6. The update for gutenprint 5.2.13 added support for two Epson Inkjet printers and corrected a mis-defined paper type that collided with standard A4 paper. (more…)

Tumbleweed Snapshots Bring Users New Vulkan, 4.9.7 Kernel

February 9th, 2017 by

Six Tumbleweed snapshots this week brought users newer versions of GStreamer, Wine, Vulkan, and a new Linux Kernel.

The new 4.9.7 kernel arrived over the weekend with the 20170204 snapshot.

The new kernel sources updated config files and fixed a build failure specific to DWARF (Debugging with Attributed Records Format). The snapshot added support for the Perl client ddclient to version 3.8.3 and yast2-installation 3.2.20 added an all-in-one installation overview for SUSE’s new Container as a Service Platform product. More information about CaaSP and transactional updates can be found in a video presented by Thorsten Kukuk at FOSDEM.

GNU Compiler Collection 6.3.1 passed testing in openQA and made it into the 20170205 snapshot and so did python-cryptography 1.7.2 and getdata 0.10.0, which is a library that provides an Application Programming Interface (API) to interface with Dirfile databases.

The 20170206 snapshot gave users Wine 2.1, which provided fixes that were deferred during the code freeze and Direct2D rendering improvements. Mercurial 4.1 reduced server-side PCU usage with a new compression engine.
