SUSE Security Breach (Again) and Tumbleweed Update

Filed under
SUSE
  • Several openSUSE services disabled due to a security breach

    We have been informed of a security breach of the MF authentication system used by several openSUSE services.

    As a result, the openSUSE services using this authentication method are immediately being set to read-only mode/preventing authentication.

    This includes the openSUSE OBS, wiki, and forums.

    The scope and impact of the breach is not yet fully clear. The disabling of authentication is to ensure the protection of our systems and user data while the situation is fully investigated.

  • Tumbleweed: Review of the weeks 2017/18 & 19

    In the last two weeks, a total of 6 snapshots had been released to the wild (0428, 0429, 0430, 0502, 0503, 0505): all those snapshots were mainly in Week 18 – while we were having some struggles this week due to the way the pattern packages are now laid out. The change was slightly more complex than anticipated and small issues crept in here and there. But the change is well worth the effort, as patterns are now smaller chunks with their own respective maintainer groups assigned. For example, the KDE Team has more, and especially more direct, control over their pattern. The same holds, of course, true for all other desktop related patterns: those now live in the respective desktop environment’s devel projects.

  • Students to Enhance Multiple Open Source Projects

    Five students will spend this summer putting their coding skills into practice for openSUSE and other projects during this year’s Google Summer of Code.

    The international program that matches mentors and students funded 1,315 student projects this year for 201 open source organizations, who will benefit from the active involvement from these new developers.

    “We are excited to be selected as a mentoring organization and to mentor these talented, young GSoC students,” said Christian Bruckmayer, one of the openSUSE mentors. “This year’s projects focus on enhancing the capabilities of our open source tools, so that the benefits are shared amongst the open-source ecosystem.”

  • 3 Developers Explain Why They Attend ApacheCon

    ApacheCon North America is right around the corner. Everyone is looking forward to this year’s event May 16-18 in Miami. There’s plenty new to see, hear, and do this year but that’s not the only attraction for developers.

    The annual conference of The Apache Software Foundation is where users and contributors meet face-to-face to collaborate on the next generation of cloud, Internet, and Big Data tech. The Apache community is huge and has upwards of 4500 committers. There is ample opportunity to meet MVPs and project heroes plus swap war stories with fellow developers in the trenches.

  • Excited about oSC17? Volunteer to experience another aspect of it!

    oSC17 is just around the corner, and if you want to be part of making it awesome you can now sign up to become a volunteer!

    Volunteers are invaluable to conferences, and they play a major role in creating a pleasant conference atmosphere for attendees.

GNOME 3.24.1, Plasma 5.9.5 Arrive in Tumbleweed

Filed under
SUSE

A total of seven openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots were released since last week’s update, which brought several minor version updates and less than a handful of major version updates.

A change on the server that prepares the .diff emails that are generated caused a hiccup for the Tumbleweed announcer, so snapshots 20170428, 20170429, 20170430 and 20170502 were all listed in snapshots 20170503. The change to the server was to create a similar data comparison file to generate emails for Leap 42.3, so it could list packages that are changed during its rolling development process.

If You're Ready for Arch, ArchMerge Eases the Way

Newcomer ArchMerge Linux offers a big change for the better to those switching from the Debian Linux lineage to the Arch Linux infrastructure. ArchMerge Linux is a recent spinoff of ArchLabs Linux. I recently reviewed Archlabs and found it to be a step up from most Arch Linux offerings in terms of installation and usability. Arch Linux distros, in general, are notorious for their challenging installation and software management processes. ArchMerge Linux brings a few extra ingredients that make trying it well worth your while if you want to consider migrating to the Arch Linux platform. Still, no Arch Linux distro is a suitable starting point for Linux newcomers. That reality does not change with ArchMerge, although it helps ease the process considerably for those who are ready for it. Read more

Spaceman Shuttleworth Finds Earthly Riches With Ubuntu Software

He’s best known for being the world’s first “Afronaut,” but since returning to Earth from his 2002 trip on Russia’s Soyuz TM-34 rocket ship, Cape Town native Mark Shuttleworth set about with the conquest of a much more lucrative universe: the internet-of-things. Shuttleworth created Ubuntu, an open-source Linux operating system that helps connect everything from drones to thermostats to the internet. His company, Canonical Group Ltd., makes money from about 800 paying customers, including Netflix Inc., Tesla Inc. and Deutsche Telekom AG, which pay for support services. Its success has helped boost his net worth to $1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. “It’s destructive to be too focused on that,” Shuttleworth said of his wealth in an interview at Bloomberg’s office in Boston. “It’s just a distraction from whether you have your finger on the pulse of what’s next.” Read more Also:

    The Silph Road is the premier grassroots network for Pokémon GO players around the world offering research, tools, and resources to the largest Pokémon GO community worldwide, with up to 400,000 visitors per day Operating a volunteer-run, community network with up to 400,000 daily visitors is no easy task especially in the face of massive and unpredictable demand spikes, and with developers spread all over the world.With massive user demand and with volunteer developers located all over the world, The Silph Road’s operations must be cost-effective, flexible, and scalable. This led the Pokémon GO network first to cloud, and then to containers and in both cases Canonical ’s technology was the answer.
