  • Another look at NetworkManager and Tumbleweed

    I last looked at NetworkManager when it was at version 1.0.0. It is now at version 1.0.6, and with some changes that persuaded me to do some more testing.

    To test, I setup a connection and then did some tests. I repeated this for KDE/Plasma 5, for Gnome and for XFCE. It is also possible to run “nm-applet” and a polkit daemon in Icewm, where configuring the network is similar to what happens with XFCE (which also uses “nm-applet”).

  • Highlights of development sprint 13

    As promised in the previous post on this blog, we’ll try to keep you updated about what is happening in the YaST world. Before Christmas we finished an specially short sprint, interrupted by another successful Hackweek. Although we always reserve some time for bug fixing, the last two sprints has been quite focused in looking into the future, implementing new solutions for old problems and trying to prepare replacements for some legacy stuff we have been carrying on for too long. Here you are the highlights.

Solus' Budgie Desktop Gets Updated and Ready for Fedora and OpenSUSE

The Solus team is busy working on improving their recently released operating system, but they are also working on the Budgie desktop, and they’ve just launched a new update for it.

Solus is having great success, but the main reason for that success is the Budgie desktop, which has been developed from scratch, just like the operating systems itself. In fact, Budgie has been stable long before the OS, and it’s already adopted in a couple of other distros.

Budgie is considered stable, but that doesn’t mean that it’s complete. New features are added all the time, and the developers have been quick to add them to Solus. In fact, they have already underlined what’s going to be added in the coming months and the team will have a lot of work ahead of them.

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 1 Now Available
  • UEFI and opensuse Leap 42.1

    A second problem showed up as bug 954126. This bug seems to have only affected Leap, and did not cause a problem with Tumbleweed. This was a bug in the file “grub.efi”, which is part of grub2-efi but installed along with shim. With this bug, attempting to boot Windows with secure-boot enabled gives a message about invalid image. It does not affect booting opensuse.

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 Tumbled Out

    Just in time for Christmas, SUSE today announced the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 1. Part of the goodies awaiting customers includes High Availability Extension, full Docker support, and security updates without full recertification. In related news, Neal Rickert today described a UEFI bug in Leap and Tumbleweed that bit him.

Today SUSE announced the immediate availability of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SPI update. This release brings a new extension that promotes increased uptime.

A Leap of Faith -- Replacing Ubuntu Server with openSUSE Leap

Filed under
SUSE
Ubuntu

I run a local file and media server, which is a very important part of my digital life -- it hosts all of my files. Everything. I have been using an Ubuntu 14.04 server running on a self-assembled PC. But, it’s a big, noisy system and generates too much heat. So, I planned to move to smaller form factor, such as System76's Meerkat.

Because I was moving to a new hardware, I decided to give openSUSE Leap a shot at running my servers. I have nothing against Ubuntu: I love Ubuntu on servers. But, I wanted to try Leap because this is the distro that runs on my main system.

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch review: Android Wear climbs a mountain

Casio deserves a lot of credit for reshaping Android Wear into an original and unique new product, something I wasn’t sure was possible. It overcomes many of the drawbacks of smartwatches while making total sense as a product in its category; if you’re in the market for a hiking watch that also works as a smartwatch, and you use an Android phone, I think you’ll be very happy with what Casio’s produced. If you’re not looking specifically for a hiking smartwatch? Maybe wait and see if Casio ever makes a G-Shock smartwatch, because this one really isn’t the sort of thing you’ll want to wear every day.
