a project by mbrugger

Tronsmart has a Rockchip rk3368 based set-top-box [1]. I want to use it as a arm64 based workstation running openSUSE.

Capturing FC frames with wireshark

a project by ptesarik

AFAIK, wireshark is the best Linux tool for analyzing network traffic. Primarily intended for Ethernet networks, there is now also support for very different protocols (e.g. USB). Sadly, there is no support for fibre channel, most likely because there is even no infrastructure in the kernel. I doubt I could write the complete stack within just one week. The result should be a clear plan of what needs to be done on each level and a proof-of-concept implementation of at least some parts.

Make Intel baytrail based device(s) work better with openSUSE

a project by mkubecek

Recently I became a (not very proud) owner of Acer Aspire Switch 10E, a small notebook/tablet convertible based on Intel baytrail platform. Replacing preinstalled (32-bit!) Windows 8.1 with (64-bit) openSUSE proved more challenging than expected, mostly because the device is haunted by a 32-bit UEFI so that it took me a week to make it boot without an external USB flash disk. Even today, a lot of issues persist. As I do not want to waste a (partially) good hardware, I would like to make it as usable as possible. This is much less selfish than it sounds as there are many other devices based on Intel baytrail platform so that the effort is going to help their owners as well (if successful, that is).

update+fix samsung exynos/arndale arm board boot

a project by bmwiedemann

We had old arndale images working, but those were based on openSUSE-12.x which is now long obsolete and bad (e.g. missing security updates). Thus we want to use a more modern u-boot and kernel, but those currently trigger a kernel panic.
