Michal Hrušecký: openSUSE 搜尋

"During last two week I was among the other things investigating how to implement search through all openSUSE web pages. As part of our Umbrella project, we want to make all our webs look unified and search through all of them is a part of this goal. So what I tried and what are my conclusions? Let's see..."

Boosters Standup 2010-03-16

"This sprint was running from March 2nd to March 16th. Its was a rather quiet sprint. The three milestones progressed nicely but nothing to spectacular. Also it was a rather dull week on the general side of things around our team."

Build Team Meeting

Minutes from the meeting

Will Stephenson: openSUSE Boosters update: improvements

"In January, the Build Service squad of openSUSE Boosters worked to improve the openSUSE Build Service web client experience.
One focus was to make it easier for project maintainers to review and accept package submissions from contributors. As explained in detail in the Collaboration article, when a contributor has made a local change to a package in her branch of a project, she then submits a request to merge the changes back to the original project (‘osc submitrequest’). This request is received by the maintainers of the original project, who review it, and then submit it onwards towards openSUSE:Factory, for example, where it is reviewed again. This distributes the workload of assembling a distribution by using the ‘many eyes’ typical of Free Software development in a structured way."

Wiki / 通訊 / 事件


Jan Weber: 800 DVDs left in Chemnitz :-)

"This weekend, as mentioned in my previous post, I visited the Chemnitzer Linux Days to run the openSUSE booth! It was my first visit to Chemnitzer Linux Days and I really have to say I was impressed, not only by the amount of visitors but also by the organization, everything worked flawlessly, this also had a major downside the catering was very good ;) Of course our booth was also running flawlessly because of the help from Petr, from the openSUSE Boosters team, and Kai-Uwe, he is developing color management applications, a big thank you to both of you for your support."

Sirko Kemter: A few things about last weekend

"I think I have to say a few words about the last weekend. There was an event and I was there. Yeah I was there. That decision wasnt easy for me. But a lot of friends wished to see me there. I decided that really at the last moment and I felt not really lucky there. Yeah I was happy to see many friends and it was a good feeling with the things they said to me. There was e.g. Wobo from MandrivaUser who said to me thx for invite him last year and that he is lucky that they Mandriva Community has now a booth there. There was the “Fedora Gang” with kital and Christoph. There was Unki, Martin, Michael and Roman (juliux was there too but he was on the booth of OTRS) from ubuntu. From Dresden there was Tokoe, Stefan (he was last time here at Launch Party) and Felix for representing the KDE project. This time openSUSE supported KDE with DVDs again but last time I had to carry them a farther way :D (Henne please force Jan next time to take some KDE-CD) There was Matthias and Rainer from the FSF I meet again and a lot of friends more. I can say thats my family because of that I sort this entry in the categorie “Family Affairs”."

Petr Uzel: openSUSE @ Chemnitzer Linux Tage 2010

"Last weekend, I was boosting at Chemnitzer Linux Tage where we ran openSUSE booth with Jan Weber, Kai-Uwe Behrmann and Sirko Kemter. Jan and Sirko already wrote reports at their blogs, so I’ll add just some personal thoughts and remarks."

Alex Barrios: FLISOL 2010 in Venezuela

"The Latin American Festival of Installation of Free Software (Festival Latinoamericano de instalación de Software libre) will be held this year in over 213 cities throughout the region, including at least 19 Venezuelan cities, bringing together much of the community of users and developers of open technologies in the country."



提供 桌面使用者 Popov: Turbocharge Writer with AuthorSupportTool

"Although is a competent productivity suite, you can add some nifty features to it using extensions. There are hundreds of nifty extensions available in the official extension repository. Some of them add a feature or two, while others take to a whole new level. The AuthorSupportTool (AST) extension belongs to the latter category. AST not just adds some random features to Writer, it dramatically enhances the word processor’s functionality, turning it into a powerful tool for working on research papers and complex documents."

ServerWatch/Juliet Kemp: Get the Most Out of Your Open-Source Software With Redirection in Bash

"It took me ages to learn bash redirection properly, and I still have to concentrate sometimes to keep my &s and my >s straight. Here's the lowdown in case you, too, have intermittent brain failure on this one.
Bash has three standard file descriptors: stdin, stdout and stderr, which refer respectively to input, output and error output. By default, all of these are directed to the terminal, so all input comes from the terminal, and all output (regular and error) will go to the terminal."

Ghacks/Jack Wallen: Understanding Samba security modes

"If you have read any of the Samba content here on Ghacks you probably will have noticed that within the smb.conf configuration file a line that begins with security =. This is a very important part of Samba setup and generally the section that gives users the most problems. Although the security mode would seem fairly straight-forward, it is certainly worth explaining."

全新/已更新的 應用程式 @ openSUSE


Packman: sockso 1.2.3

"Sockso is a free, open-source, personal music server for everyone!
It's designed to be as simple as possible so that anyone with a mouse and some mp3's can get their friends listening to their music across the internet in seconds! Available in Packman Repository."

Packman: kmediafactory 0.7.5

"KMediafactory is easy to use template based dvd authoring tool.
You can quickly create DVD menus for home videos and TV recordings in three simple steps."

OBS/Petr Mladek: OpenOffice_org 3.2.1 beta1 available for openSUSE

"I’m happy to announce 3.2.1 beta1 個套件 for openSUSE. They are available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project, are based on the upstream 3.2 sources and include many Go-oo fixes and improvements. Please, look for more details about the openSUSE OOo build on the wiki page."

OBS/Klaas Freitag (dragotin): Kraft 0.40 Beta 2 available

"Last night the Kraft team was releasing the second beta for Kraft 0.40. A second beta is needed because meanwhile KDE 4.4 was released which comes with the Akonadi based addressbook. That is a big change compared to the old addressbook with a large impact on Kraft. Parts of Krafts addressbook integration had to be rewritten. The Akonadi addressbook interface in the KDE Pimlibs feels like not really being complete yet. With large address books for example, this version of Kraft might show performance gaps."

"Meeting Minutes"



Andrew Wafaa: Bugging Bugs - A Call For Help

"個人認為,我發現在 Linux or 其它的作業系統中, 一直保持著追蹤和應付臭蟲,可說是一個真的PITA . 這也許是一部分原因,我不是一位頂尖的使用者,(他們不知道明顯的充分使用它們的服務); 同時有很多種不同的臭蟲追蹤程式,Bugzilla, trac, matis 等等; 它們是擊倒對許多不同的專案使用它們自己的追蹤程式; 好處在於擁有自己的代碼或項目如 SourceForge ,Gna, Launchpad ,BerliOS 等等.因此, 所有的專案使用了相同的工具跟介面. 是的. Bugzilla 可能是最常見的,但是, 也是最常要修改的, 沒有兩個專案看起來是相同的,然而工作流程是不同的."

Klaas Freitag (dragotin): The KDE Plasma Reference

"兩天以前, KDE Plasma 社群宣布他們正在提供著一種實際映像(image) 的 Plasma Netbook 平台. 他們提供映像檔能夠容易地為所有感興趣的發展者,使用者,記者,愛好者檢查出來,工作,討論和改進. 參考映像檔是由 KDE社群努力,利用著 openSUSE 上面的 BuildServer 和在 openSUSE 版本的基礎上."

openSUSE 論壇


Can't Install Thunderbird

"Can it really be this difficult? Apparently it can! zypper in <package_name> seems to be a fairly basic, easy to perform task. I wonder if this will be solved by the time it's published in the news next week."

Numpad Issue

"A little help in the right direction and we are working toward a satisfied user. But it's another on going thread at the time of entry. Let us see how it works out."

Wireless Problem

"Another satisfied customer gets the right kind of help and now has working wireless. Happy days."

Virtual Box USB Issue

"I think this one might go forever. Some clear and simple instructions exist in the forum and there are more than a few well experienced users in on this thread."

Frank Karlitschek (karli): ownCloud - development started

"I committed ownCloud 1.0 beta 1 to yesterday
So what is ownCloud ?
I announced the ownCloud project during my Camp KDE presentation in January in San Diego. Here is a short overview what we want to achieve with ownCloud."

Advances in audio

"... This week, we took another big step. We’ve published the source code for SILK in an Internet Draft that we submitted to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). This means that anyone and everyone can now see, download, use and improve upon the software*. More importantly, this represents a key step in the development of an international standard for a wideband codec for use on the Internet."

Eclipse 3.6 M6 (Helios) available for download

"Just in time for EclipseCon, Eclipse 3.6 M6 is now available for download. I’m pretty excited about some of the new features in this milestone, especially some of the things from PDE.
Feature based launches (and feature based targets) should make bundle management a lot easier."

Gustavo Noronha: WebKitGTK+ 1.1.90 is out!

"We’re coming close to GNOME 2.30 release date, and we are getting ready to branch a stable release off of WebKit’s svn trunk in preparation for that. The idea of the stable branch is to try to maintain, and improve stability, with no additional features going in. Speaking of features, though, if you’ve been paying attention you will have noticed WebKitGTK+ has come a long way, now.
We came from not having basic features such as download support or openning links in new tabs, a more-or-less working HTML5 media implementation, and very few or missing in action developers to a thriving project, that gets more, and more attention, and contributors every day, with advanced features available, and rocking HTML5 media support that leaves little to be desired. It’s been just over one year since we started rolling mostly bi-weekly releases, each adding more awesome features."

Call for participation Cloer: One Year Later: What Do You Think of

" This month marks the one-year anniversary of in its newest form. A year ago, we built the site based on your rankings of features on IdeaForge. Today, we want to hear how you’re using and what is most useful. And perhaps even more importantly – what isn’t useful. We also want to better understand who is using the site so we can provide resources that specifically meet your needs.
So, we’re launching a short survey today to gather important input on where we go from here. We will review the results at our annual Planning Meeting at the Collaboration Summit in April where the 2010 Linux Gurus (to be announced shortly) will review the findings and help us determine what’s next for the site. Please take five minutes to fill out the 8-question Community Survey."


Aaron Reichman (areichman): ownCloud features + screenshots

"A couple of days ago Frank released the first beta of ownCloud and I've been playing with it almost continually since then. For those who haven't read Franks blog entry (which is well worth reading) ownCloud is a set of server scripts for personal storage (among other things) and hopes to implement an open source cloud for everybody to take advantage of. If that doesn't make sense, wait for the screenshots :-) New features are planned (and you can see exactly what those features are at"

Aaron Seigo: Plasma 小筆電參考平台

"Plasma 小筆電參考平台是一個基於Linux的軟體發行套件, 它可以讓你快速的使用KDE is a Linux-based software distribution that gives you quick access to the KDE Plasma Netbook experience.
It's designed to be easy to get: If you have a 2 GB (or larger) USB memory stick and a device (laptop, netbook, tablet) that can boot from a USB stick, you are one download, two (copy and paste) commands and a few minutes away from having the latest build of Plasma Netbook up and running."

Mario Carrion: Comparing Ruby and C#: Equality

"While reading The Ruby Programming Language I wrote a couple of notes about the language comparing it to C#. This is the first post of the series talking about those notes.
C# and Ruby share a similar syntax to compare equality in objects. Both use the operator equals (==) and, at least, one method to compare. Ruby uses equal? and eql?, C# uses Equals. Also, both support overriding the equals (==) operator to provide a different logic in case that’s required. The methods’ name are different but they work pretty much the same.
Understanding the difference between both languages is really simple. If you already know the difference between reference types and values types you are pretty much all set." Hales: Linux powers 9 out of 10 top supercomputers

"According to the Top 500 Supercomputer sites, Linux is powering nine of the ten largest supercomputers in the world.
Six of these are running Suse Linux Enterprise Server, Novell is pleased to point out."

ZDNet/Zack Whittaker: Top 100 sites in 2010: Search giants, shopping, Facebook and a bit of porn

"Courtesy of Neilsen data and info-graphics at the BBC, a new visualisation has been created to explain the interactivity of users and the sites they visit in the main browsing areas of the world, including the US, Australia, Brazil and a half-dozen European countries."

Computerworld/Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: Linux on the cloud: IBM, Novell & Red Hat

"Today, Mar. 16, has been filled with Linux and cloud news — which is great, I guess, if you're ready to trust your data to the cloud.
In case you don't follow Linux as closely as I do, here's the short version: Red Hat and Novell have joined up with IBM to provide a new open cloud environment that goes by the unwieldy name Smart Business Development and Test on the IBM Cloud. "

The Register/Timothy Prickett Morgan: Novell, Ingres partner for appliances

"In January, Novell released its SUSE Appliance Toolkit after nearly a year of alpha and beta testing. Now begins the difficult task of getting systems, middleware, and database software makers to rejigger their code and make it available through the online tool so companies can spin up and spit out software appliances.
Today at the Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco, Novell and open source database maker Ingres are touting the fact that the latter company's eponymous database is now available through the SUSE Appliance Toolkit."

Techworld/Paul Krill: Novell Mono project bringing Silverlight to Apple iPhone

"MonoDroid, which will enable deployment of .Net-based applications on Google Android phones, is in development at Novell, with a preview release planned for August, the head of the project said.
The runtime project is part of Novell's Mono effort, which has been responsbile for putting Microsoft .Net-based technologies on Linux and other non-Microsoft platforms."

Reviews and Essays

TuxRadar: Reviewed: 3.2

"There's a new version of Linux's grandest office suite, but is it a major step forward or just another humdrum release with little to show? And most importantly, does it finally get the startup time down to an acceptable level? Read on for all the gory details...
Office suites lack glamour. They're perfunctory, practical and prosaic. They remind us of real work, mundane chores and things that need to be done. But that's also why they're essential and why is a vital part of the free software ecosystem, whether it innovates or not."

Ars Technica/Ryan Paul: 非常出色的5個最佳開放式原始碼復活節彩蛋

"在一些開放式原始碼應用軟體中隱藏了不少幽默的特徵. 雖然這類的復活節彩蛋當你去檢視程式的原始碼時容易被發現,但是還是有不少尚未廣為人知的."
