from SUSE Linux

I am a Software Engineer based in Australia, I have been working on openSUSE for 6 years maintaining the Enlightenment desktop and several other packages, I have also been active in the community both on IRC and mailing lists, in more recent times I have also become a member of the package review team. I have spent the last year working at SUSE as a packager and outside of this have interests in topics such as desktop design as well as robotics and electronics.

No video of the event yet, sorry!

During hackweek a group of us worked on a project to take the current ALP sources and supplement them with packages from the community via tumbleweed to create a system that is as close to functionally equivalent to Leap without using many of the new ALP features such as containerisation and transactional updates, as there has been alot of community feedback with users suggesting they’d like to see such a system for openSUSE in the future.

This project turned out to be a great success as we were able to create functioning demo systems with XFCE, Enlightenment and Gnome as well as setting up d-installer. This talk will outline the steps taken to create our new custom operating system and the challenges we faced as well as outlining the help we will need from the community to turn this prototype into something worthy of being a Leap 15 successor.
