My name Empire. I would like to know how the Factory works. How to install Tumbleweed latest package? I heard he was being tested before he got into Tumbleweed. I am obsessed with constant freshness.
Look forward to their response!
I would like to share some great news with you on behalf of the
openSUSE Release team.
openSUSE Leap 15.3 Build 160.3 was accepted as the Gold Master. So
we're on time for the planned Global Availability next week on the 2nd
of June. Submissions that didn't make it will have be released as
The entire openSUSE release team would like to give a big thanks to all
of you who participated in the release. You all made Leap 15.3 happen!
Talking about dates, I'd like to correct my previous statement about
SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3 GM date as it happened last Thursday,
therefore according to the schedule. There seem to have been some
miscommunication on both sides.
Some changes to the release process that you will most likely notice.
We did adapt the release process to pre-agreed changes from openSUSE
Leap 15.2 retrospective and will no longer explicitly hide images. We
expect to eliminate any issues on the mirror side. We've had a
discussion about this on last year's retrospective review. The outcome
can be found in
We also improved the signing of images as suggested in the
retrospective. This will hopefully show you that we take retrospectives
The official release announcement will be sent on the 2nd of June as
planned in our https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Roadmap
This date is important not only from a marketing point of view but also
for the 0day maintenance part of the release. Some updates that we'd
like to have available with the GA are aiming at that date.
Same as last year, the Release retrospective survey will be open on GA
day. We'd like to kindly you about what went well and what didn't go
too well in this release. We will then review it together on my
Workshop on the upcoming *oSVC2021.
Thank you very much for all the hard work!

I want to advertise PulseAudio 14.99.1 (aka "15.0 RC1"). See https://email@example.com/msg21… for the release announcement.
Maybe this is also interesting to some fellow openSUSErs? Especially the much needed Bluetooth improvements finally made 2 of my headsets usable very good on Linux!
It would probably also get rid of the huge stack of patches that are currently on 14.2 in openSUSE.
Alternative suggestions usually include installing PipeWire, which Fedora has set as default already.
I asked Takashi if it might be nice to have included in Tumbleweed, but in general there is a bit of reluctance (understandably) to include non-final releases.
Note that an update would also require an updated pavucontrol, to enable Codec selection.
In any case I have prepared the Pulseaudio in my home dir on OBS, so if anyone wants to try it you can get it from https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:ailin_nemui:test_pulseaudio (zypper dup --from home_ailin_nemui_test_pulseaudio)
I'm sure the Pulseaudio team will also appreciate feedback on the RC. (It runs very stably for me!)
Dear Package maintainers and hackers.
Below package(s) in openSUSE:Factory have been failing to build for at
least 4 weeks. We tried to send out notifications to the
configured bugowner/maintainers of the package(s), but so far no
fix has been submitted. This probably means that the
maintainer/bugowner did not yet find the time to look into the
matter and he/she would certainly appreciate help to get this
Unless somebody is stepping up and submitting fixes, the listed
package(s) are going to be removed from openSUSE:Factory.

Think then of Usenet instead. A client connects to a server that has a
database of "all" the messages, but the messages are propagated to and
from many other servers. To a user it does not matter what server he
connects to, the "nntp:opensuse" group will be the same everywhere.
Maybe with delays.

Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,
During this week, we have finalized the UsrMerge project in
openSUSE:Factory. Future snapshots will have /bin as a symlink to
/usr/bin, and /lib(64) as symlink to /usr/lib(64). This is also the
reason why the last snapshot tested and published was 0424. After that,
I was keeping OBS busy with a full bootstrap and rebuild of Tumbleweed.
But let’s first focus on the things that have been delivered during the
last week, namely the 4 snapshots 0520, 0521, 0522, and 0524.
Those snapshots contained:
* Mozilla Thunderbird 78.10.2
* NetworkManager-applet 1.22.0 (last week I wrongly announced an
upgrade of NetworkManager, but in fact it was NetworkManager-applet)
* Linux kernel 5.12.4
* Poppler 21.05.0
* sssd 2.5.0: note, a few deprecated command-line arguments have been
removed for good
* zstd 1.5.0
* Mesa 21.1.1
The next snapshot to be published, possibly 0525 in case openQA agrees,
will be built entirely using gcc11 and will have UsrMerge enabled. You
can find some information about this topic at
Besides that, the snapshots in planning, beyond that point, are planned
* python3x packages will no longer provide python symbol. This caused
for some confusion in the past when people expected ‘python’ to be the
legacy python2, but python3x provided it as well.
* Linux kernel 5.12.6
* systemd-experimental should finally land in the repositories
* KDE Plasma 5.22.0: for now we still have 5.22 Beta in staging,
release is planned for week 23
I have package https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:vojtaeus/PhyML-mpi
When I install it (up-to-date TW), it pulls openmpi3, openmpi3-config,
openmpi3-libs and few other libs, but when I run it, I get error
phyml-mpi: error while loading shared libraries: libmpi.so.40: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
Interestingly, manual installation of openmpi4-libs and running "mpi-selector
--set openmpi4" doesn't help. Anyway, it seems that openmpi-macros-devel is
somehow unsure if it wishes openmpi 3 or 4. :-) How to fix it?

Has anyone successfully cross-compiled the Rust compiler on openSUSE?
I'm currently trying to bisect a 32-bit PowerPC bug  in the Rust compiler and I'm
using an openSUSE system for cross-compiling for powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu for the
first time for this purpose now.
I'm normally using Debian in that case where cross-compiling just works thanks to
Multi-Arch. But it seems more tricky in openSUSE.
The first issue I ran into are the vendor-specific GCC prefixes, so I had to tell Rust
to use these:
However, after that I'm still running into the problem that GCC can't find its standard
running: "powerpc64-suse-linux-gcc" "-O3" "-ffunction-sections" "-fdata-sections" "-fPIC" "-ffunction-sections" "-fdata-sections" "-fPIC" "-fno-builtin" "-fvisibility=hidden" "-ffreestanding" "-DVISIBILITY_HIDDEN" "-o" "/data/home/glaubitz/rust/build/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/stage1-std/powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu/release/build/compiler_builtins-b0a5020552cfdf6e/out/int_util.o" "-c" "/data/home/glaubitz/rust/src/llvm-project/compiler-rt/lib/builtins/int_util.c"

Any idea how to pass the proper header search path to the build system for Rust?
