OpenSUSE Leftovers

  • RubyGems, sudo, libvirt update in Tumbleweed

    Three openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots were released since the last update.

    Several RubyGems were updated in the first two snapshots of the week and an update to sudo came in the most recent 20210127 snapshot.

    A 10-year-old Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures that allowed root-level access was fixed with the update to sudo 1.9.5p2. Patches for CVE-2021-3156 were also backported in maintenance updates for openSUSE Leap. A minor version update of virtualbox to 6.1.18 fixed some nested virtualization hangs when executing symmetric multiprocessing with nested-guests under certain conditions on Intel hosts. An update was made to jhead, which is a command-line tool for displaying and manipulating exif header data in jpeg images; the 3.04 version removed an unnecessary warning with some types of GPS data and fixed a few bugs, including one bug that did not clear exif information when processing images. Some buttons were disabled in the update of yast2-network 4.3.41, which also added basic support for writing the network configuration to the NetworkManager backend.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2021/04 – Dominique a.k.a. DimStar (Dim*)

    This week felt like I was fighting with OBS and openQA, and packages breaking Tumbleweed. This also shows in the number of released snapshots: ‘only’ 3. But there was a huge gap between 0121 (reviewer last week) and 0126 (first published snapshot this week). But I’m sure you all prefer longer gaps, but working snapshots. The longer the gap, the more packages are in there, so the total net change remains the same. This wee, we released 0126, 0127, and 0128.

  • Grab a cool wallpaper for your Linux desktop

    I tweeted about a blog post which I published on, explaining how I configured the GNOME desktop theme Yaru (by the Ubuntu community) on my openSUSE Tumbleweed machine. The tweet got a lot of reaction, not just for the blog post or cool Yaru theme but also for the nice wallpaper showing penguins using a computer.

  • Web Development Sprints To Start Next Week

    The openSUSE Project will begin monthly web development sprints to address feedback provided by attendees of the Jan. 23 meetup regarding the results of the End of the Year Survey.


    The web sprints are open for people to provide feedback to the community about the various websites openSUSE has for on-boarding people who install openSUSE and people who want to learn more about the distributions, tools and technologies. The sprints will focus on several aspects of web development and enhance the structure of the websites to better direct users toward helpful links, resources and communication tools. The web sprints seek participation from new, current and former users to provide feedback to developers with the desire to better understand how people navigate the openSUSE websites.

    Gaining feedback on the best communication channels to help people solve technical issues and better ways to show people how to get involved in the project are desired outcomes from the web development sprints.

    The sprints will provide a useful way for people to voice their feedback and gain knowledge about web development and technologies.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
