What's what with openSUSE, ZENworks, YaST

Filed under
SUSE

In late April, SUSE Project Manager Andreas Jaeger announced on the openSUSE list that "Beginning with the next alpha release of openSUSE 10.3, alpha 4, ZENworks will be gone. Instead, openSUSE "will use the native tools only -- Zypper, openSUSE-updater, and YaST."

Now, Bruce Lowry, Novell Inc.'s director of PR, explains in his blog what this means for Novell's enterprise SUSE Linux operating systems.

Lowry opened by writing that, "openSUSE will now be focusing on native software management using YaST and 'zypp,' the package-management library. As a result, openSUSE 10.3 will not include the ZENworks Management Daemon."

Starting with openSUSE 10.1, the openSUSE group, with Novell's support, changed the default package management software from SUSE 9 and 10's YOU (YaST Online Update) to zypp.

Intel Beignet Is Working Out Surprisingly Well For OpenCL On Linux

Beignet is the project out of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center for exposing GPGPU/compute capabilities out of Ivy Bridge hardware and newer when using a fully open-source Linux stack. While Beignet differs greatly from Gallium3D's Clover state tracker, this Intel-specific open-source OpenCL implementation is working out quite well for Ubuntu Linux. While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
