"Проверка... Раз. Раз. Добрый вечер, друзья, говорит ваш Совет openSUSE. Если вы еще не слышали, то Novell согласилась на сделку с Attachmate. Что это означает для проекта openSUSE? Мы точно еще не знаем, потому что наш хрустальный шар в настоящее время в магазине, и гадание не является нашим выдающимся талантом ;-) Однако, у нас есть другие таланты: мы сообщество разработчиков, и мы здесь, чтобы работать на один из лучших GNU/Linux дистрибутивов и другие дистрибутивы программного обеспечения мирового класса, для продвижения свободного и открытого программного обеспечения совместно с мировым сообществом FOSS!

"Community, during our bi-weekly Встреча правленияs on IRC we have a regular agenda topic “Where do we need to improve?”. We’re very much interested in ideas you may have to improve the inner workings of the Community/Project and we also like to provide an opportunity to step up and make us aware of complaints you may have with various aspects of the Community/Project. We’re particular interested in addressing those issues that are both fast and easy to fix while providing a significant advantage to our success and the sake of our community. (...)"

"The old openSUSE:11.3:Contrib signing key got deleted by an accident, so we have to generate the new one and sign all packages in this repo with it. It is safe to accept key with the following fingerprint when yast/zypper ask you to do so:

"Now I can select only 1 or only all packages in YaST package manager.
"I often hear complains from users about the Gnome Environment,not its ability to work but the design of that,people love the 2 bar on Gnome Environment and I was thinking if we could change it on the upcoming 11.4. The currently Gnome menu is not usable enough.At list you can change that and make it more like Mint. I know its really easy for a user to make that change but those are the things that attract users,especially the new ones."
"from https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=648565 (written by Nico Gruber):
"GRUB supports a "fallback" entry that is booted if the default kernel is not available or bootable.
"The package apache2-mod_python is discontinued. Please add apache2-mod_wsgi instead. Please add it to patterns-openSUSE-lamp_server."
"openSUSE DVD has a lot of well selected packages. Currently what we do is offer choices to the consumer by his choices of Desktop. I would like we also offer choices on the basis of their use."
"There should a yast module which support managing and editing of classpaths and environment variables. This makes opensuse more user friendly when an application is extracted from tar files or it is compiled from sources."
"When running cron jobs some of them can increase IO heavily, slowing the system down, like suse-updatedb from findutils-locate, doing a large find on the filesystems. On production servers being used by several users, these scripts have to be started at non working hours.
"will be realy usefull a graphical environment for managing pendrive, where you can format, make partition, etc"
"koffice provides a very useful office suite that seamlessly integrates with kde"
"To be honest with you I just wrote that article for the openSUSE wiki but I liked it so much that I decided to blog it.
"We are planning a new Rubric "In the Community/Why i’m using SUSE / openSUSE."
"I’m going on parental leave from December 14th to February 13th, 2011. My son was born in January and now it’s my time to help a bit more out at home. My wife has many plans for me and I have some myself as well including changing diapers, some work at the house, celebrating christmas, showing off our kids to their grandparents, aunts and uncles, getting my son settled in the daycare, building a snow man…

"If you find yourself doing the same task over and over again in LibreOffice (or OpenOffice.org), you need to learn about macros. Whether it's inserting the same text over and over, formatting text, or any other task where multiple keystrokes or actions are necessary you can save time by creating a macro. LibreOffice (and OpenOffice.org before it) include an outstanding Macro tool that allows you to quickly create and manage macros that will ease the burden of repetitive tasks. (...)"

"Beginners are mostly afraid of command prompt. Whenever they see a command prompt, they immediately say “its very difficult”. But it’s not true. The Command prompt is as friendly as GUI (Graphical User Interface), provided if you use it with proper procedure.

"strace is a useful little utility – installed by default on most Linux systems – which allows you to find out what a program is doing under the hood by tracing the system calls it's making. strace is a great basic debugging tool; but it's also fascinating to use even when you're not tracing a problem. It can teach you a lot about how a Linux program works. (...)"
"You thought you had it all working, didn't you? And then you find out that your process you thought was running and collecting data hasn't reported anything for two hours. Or maybe it's something on the desktop -- your browser has frozen and isn't responding. Or suddenly everything's gotten really slow and you're not sure why. And this happens every few days, and you're tired of it.
Although the download page at http://opensuse.org contains quite some information on this subject, the question above is asked in the forums from time to time. Read the different suggestions to the OP, who has problems getting a correct download.
"After the breaking news of Mike Galbraith's patch of 233 lines of code to the linux kernel and the confirmation it was working by Linus Torvalds, naturally some threads were opened on the forums. This thread is one of them, where bits and bigger bits of info drop in, also the alternative for the patch."
"This subject was posted in our General Chit-Chat forums, may originally have been intended as no more than just sharing, but the thread evolves into a vibrant one, full of suggestions, advice, do's and don'ts, and sharing of experiences"
"A nice example of integration of various services offered by opensuse.org and it's community: paste,opensuse.org. Lots and lots of times help seekers are asked to post the output of commands invoked in a terminal window. This output can be very long in terms of number of lines, and thus make the post almost unreadable. Pasting the output at paste.opensuse.org gives a link you can copy in your post."
"After months of rumours, yet another big news story develops: Novell, owner of SUSE, gets sold to Attachmate. Read how users react on the news, what they think it's going to mean for the distro. As I am writing this, already three threads have been opened on this issue: one here, and one here also have some replies."

"I'll carry on giving tips on how to make better bug reports but I would like to ask your participation at the bug squashing week which will start tomorrow and will last 7 days.
"In August we delivered the news that Linux was soon to receive a native ZFS Linux kernel module. The Sun (now Oracle) ZFS file-system has long been sought after for Linux, though less now since Btrfs has emerged, but incompatibilities between the CDDL and GPL licenses have barred such support from entering the mainline Linux kernel. There has been ZFS-FUSE to run the ZFS file-system in user-space, but it comes with slow performance. There has also been work by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories in porting ZFS to Linux as a native Linux kernel module. This LLNL ZFS work though is incomplete but still progressing due to a US Department of Energy contract. It is though via this work that developers in India at KQ Infotech have made working a Linux kernel module for ZFS. In this article are some new details on KQ Infotech's ZFS kernel module and our results from testing out the ZFS file-system on Linux. (...)"

Now you can add one more to the list: Electrolux (Frigidaire) in Brazil has just announced the Infinity i-kitchen, a smart appliance running Linux on an embedded 400MHz Freescale i.MX25 processor. With 128MB RAM and a 480×800 touch panel, the i-kitchen provides the user with unparalleled control over his refrigerator operations. (...)"
"Toshiba announced a pair of 2.5-inch hard disk drives it claims offer the industry's widest temperature range for 24/7 operation. Suitable for ATMs, digital surveillance, automation, and other embedded devices, the MK1060GSCX and MK8050GACY spin at 4,200rpm and offer 100GB or 80GB capacities, respectively. (...)"
"When thinking of an open source developer, most us of probably think of a male in his 30’s, overweight, long beard, and socially awkward. While this is just a stereotype and not a true reflection of all open source developers, there is some truth in the weight category. (...)"

"Are menus starting to disappear from the Linux desktop? A survey of the alternatives suggests that, at the very least, menus seem to be evolving out of recognition in response to modern trends, particularly the effort to make workstation and laptop desktops more like mobile interfaces. Ask usability experts, and the unexamined assumption is that the classic menu needs improvement -- although whether users feel that way seems less clear. (...)"
"So I’ve used KDE for about a work week. During that time I’ve pretty much gone to using the KDE versions of all my programs except Konqueror. I’m not sure if the Fedora 14 version of Konqueror is the one with Webkit, but last time I used Konqueror with KHTML it was mucking up a bunch of web pages including my blog. So I stuck with Google Chrome, which is what i use on Gnome, LXDE (Lubuntu on my laptop), and on my Windows 7 install. (Also, I stuck with gPodder for podcasts because that’s working perfectly) So how did it go?"
