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…)

SUSE Studio online + Open Build Service = SUSE Studio Express

Merging SUSE Studio and Open Build Service

Written by Andreas Jaeger

SUSE Studio was launched in 2009 to make building images really easy. Nowadays, images are used everywhere – for public cloud you need images; container images are used to have small and movable workloads, and data center operators use golden images to start their workloads.

As you may be aware, we have an Open Build Service (OBS) tool that helps you to build packages to deliver complete distributions. In the last few years, we have been updating this tool and it now can handle any kind of image.

Additionally, the default engine for building images at SUSE is kiwi and is used in both SUSE Studio and OBS.

Reviewing these offerings and the way the image build situation has evolved, we have decided to merge the two online services, OBS and SUSE Studio, into a common solution.

Looking at the feature requests for SUSE Studio on image building and looking at our technologies, we decided to use OBS as the base for our image building service. Since OBS already builds images for various environments, we will first add a new image building GUI to OBS. This combined solution will now be delivered as “SUSE Studio Express”.

KDevelop and the openSUSE Build Service

June 4th, 2008 by

Building packages for multiple distros can be a major pain — which is why we provide the openSUSE Build Service. One of the Build Service’s many features is the ability to create packages for many distros — including openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, and Ubuntu. One of the projects making the most of the Build Service is KDevelop. We talked with KDevelop developer Amilcar do Carmo Lucas about how the KDevelop project is using the build service.
