A dot in the map

I don't ever remembering suggesting a site but to be honest I rarely fall into sites that not many people know and worth mentioning, also most of the times I do, I am a bit bored on blog about it so I eventually never do ;-)

Today though it's different, I am taking a break from a presentation it was supposed to be ready...Well...Yesterday, but I am still looking for the right kittens photos to complete this presentation(...don't ask...). Anyway normally I would just watch a movie or something but I am a bit in a mood to blog and latelly I had too much on my plate and had no time to do it, so here I am.

Anyway a friend of mine, Efstathios Chatzikyriakidis had this briliant and simple idea, to make a map where people around the world would state their possition in the map and the OS they use. Some of you might find this useless but I find interesting the fact that I could see the preferance of people around me on what Open Source or Free Software they use and some of you might too. The site is called OSHACKERS and it is licenced under the GNU GPLv3 and if you are curious I would suggest to give it a look and why no register...

openSUSE 12.1 RC2 installed

I was expecting RC2 for a week now since this was the deadline I had given myself in order to install 12.1. I am going to be honest, I was expecting problems and usually I wait for at least a month after the actual release date in order to install any distribution, I did that on 11.3 and on 11.4. I still don't consider myself an experienced Linux user but there was something in 12.1 one that made me trust my abilities and go on.

So I made coffee and started a clear installation. After the instalation finished I had a few problems but it was finally proven that all of the problems I had were PEBKAC problems and were solved due to the great patience people at the #opensuse-project and #opensuse-kde IRC channels showed with me.

I really got very impressed by 12.1, it is probably the fastest Linux Distribution I can remember I ever had,that systemd everybody are talking about and I still don't actually understand what it is seems to improved things a lot.
Stability was never really a problem on openSUSE and to be honest it is too soon to speak about that but I found no problems with that. Kernel 3.1 is working fine, nouveau driver worked just fine with my nvidia and there is no need to use a closed driver. KDE 4.7.2 is Great.
Generally I was impressed by 12.1 mostly because I was expecting to face some problems and I did not, either I am getting better, either openSUSE is coming again with another Great distribution made by the community to the community. What do you think?

Freddy Mercury, the King

The greater way to start a morning than listening to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is to listen 'Don't stop me now'. If you haven't seed today's Google doodle, go for it, it is dedicated to the birth of Freddie Mercury.
What to say about this great person-singer-poet-musician?
If Rock was a ship Freddy mercury would be it's Captain.

So long Freddy, you will never be forgotten.

A wonderful thing to be a part of...

Once again today I was reading the openSUSE Strategy community statement and I can get out of my head how wonderful the begging of the statement sounds:

'We are the openSUSE Community - a friendly, welcoming, vibrant, and active community. This includes developers, testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists, promoters and everybody else who wishes to engage with the project.'

The greater of all is that all of the people of openSUSE are making this more than a statement, people around the globe are working hard for this to be a reality. You can come to the openSUSE Conference in Nuremberg and feel that in person. Learn what RWX³ means in action.

You still have time to join us.

Desktop summit 2011: A reason to dislike some of my friends

 Being a firefighter is a work I love. Some of the things I learned to live without are summer vacations, camping, fishing and sailing. I gave up those pleasures of life due to my love and commitment to my work. This of course doesn't make me less jealous when some of my friends are doing things I REALLY love  to do too.

 My friends Stathis, Stella and Theo are going to  Desktop Summit, an event I would really love to go. Also this Summer DS is in Berlin, a city that I always wanted to go and actually planned a trip there for more than 2 times and always on the last minute something happened and the trip was canceled. They are going there and they will be with Jos Poortvliet and Izabele Valverde from openSUSE whom I missed a lot since the marketing Hackfest, also they will meet Andreas Jaeger before me and yes I dislike them for that too. They will also do a lot of things I wanted to do, see a lot of interesting events, participate in workshops and be on those DS party that I heard are amazing.

I just hope that they will bring me back a lot of presents in order to gain my sympathy  again ;-)

Go there and have a great time people as I am sure you will, maybe next year will go together...

Ναι, ήρθε η ώρα να αρχίσετε να ετοιμάζετε το ταξίδι σας στη Νυρεμβέργη!

Σε δύο μήνες από τώρα θα πραγματοποιηθεί το συνέδριο openSUSE και SUSE Labs στη Νυρεμβέργη της Γερμανίας. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι, επειδή τα αεροπορικά εισιτήρια δε φθηναίνουν, πρέπει να αρχίσετε να ετοιμάζεστε! Ζητήστε άδεια από το αφεντικό σας, αρχίστε να ενημερώνετε τους καθηγητές σας ότι δε θα είστε παρόντες στις 11 - 14 Σεπτεμβρίου. Και φυσικά αρχίστε να βρίσκεται φτηνές πτήσεις ή εισιτήρια τρένου. Κάντε κράτηση στο ξενοδοχείο και είστε έτοιμοι να εγγραφείτε για το συνέδριο. Φυσικά μην ξεχάσετε να υποβάλλεται μια συνεδρία αν θέλετε να κάνετε κάποια παρουσίαση, να οργανώσετε ένα BoF (συνάντηση ομάδας), να πραγματοποιήσετε μια συνεδρία hack ή ένα workshop.


Η ομάδα του συνεδρίου openSUSE έχει φτιάξει μια λίστα με ξενοδοχεία όπου μπορείτε να μείνετε κατά τη διάρκεια του συνεδρίου. Σας συνιστούμε να προτιμήσετε κάποιο από αυτά τα ξενοδοχεία καθώς θα έχουν μόνο συμμετέχοντες του συνεδρίου (fellow geekos), έχουν λογικές τιμές (ειδικές τιμές για τους συμμετέχοντες του συνεδρίου!) και φυσικά δεν είναι πολύ μακρυά από τον χώρο διεξαγωγής, στο Zentrifuge.


Για μερικούς από εσάς ένα ταξίδι στη Νυρεμβέργη δεν είναι κάτι εύκολο από οικονομικής απόψεως. Ίσως είστε φοιτητής ή πρέπει να έρθετε από πολύ μακρυά. Τα γνωρίζουμε όλα αυτά πολύ καλά και είναι ο κύριος λόγος για τον οποίο ψάχνουμε συνεχώς για χορηγούς! Μπορείτε να υπολογίζετε να δείτε σχετική ανακοίνωση σε μία εβδομάδα περίπου, σχετικά με το τι και πώς μπορούμε να σας βοηθήσουμε οικονομικά να ταξιδέψετε και να είστε σίγουροι ότι θα κάνουμε ό,τι μπορούμε ώστε μέλη της κοινότητας από μακρυά ή με οικονομικές δυσκολίες μπορούν να έρθουν και να συμμετέχουν κι αυτοί μαζί μας!


Η εγγραφή σας εξασφαλίζει καρτελάκι για εσάς στο συνέδριο χωρίς να χρειάζεται να περιμένετε στην ουρά μέχρι να σας ετοιμάσουμε ένα εκείνη τη στιγμή. Επίσης σας προσφέρει πρόσβαση στο ασύρματο ίντερνετ και σας εξασφαλίζει μια θέση στο πάρτυ! Και φυσικά μας δίνει τη δυνατότητα να οργανώσουμε καλύτερα τα πάντα, επομένως έχει σημασία να εγγραφείτε το συντομότερο δυνατό αν σκοπεύετε να έρθετε!
Να σημειωθεί ότι για να εγγραφείτε δε χρειάζεται να δημιουργήσετε λογαριασμό. Θα πρέπει να κάνετε κράτηση σε ξενοδοχείο μόνοι σας, ρίξτε μια ματιά σε αυτή τη σελίδα!
Τέλος, υπάρχει η δυνατότητα για 2 διαφορετικά εισιτήρια. Η είσοδος είναι ελεύθερη για όλους αλλά όσοι θέλουν να υποστηρίξουν το συνέδριο και έχουν την οικονομική δυνατότητα μπορούν να αγοράσουν ένα επαγγελματικό εισιτήριο (professional ticket). Κοστίζει 250 ευρώ και σας παρέχει, εκτός από πρόσβαση στο συνέδριο, βραδινό με τους ομιλητές και άλλους κατόχους εισιτηρίων καθώς και με τη διοίκηση του προϊόντος SUSE.


Εν τω μεταξύ, οποιαδήποτε βοήθεια στην ομάδα διοργάνωσης είναι ευπρόσδεκτη. Αν θέλετε να ασχοληθείτε κι εσείς και να βοηθήσετε να κάνουμε το συνέδριο openSUSE το καλύτερο που έγινε ποτέ, εγγραφείτε στη λίστα της ομάδας και δείτε και τη σελίδα οργνάνωσης."

Προς τον Π**στη που με καταραστηκε

Αγαπητέ Π**στη (που με καταράστηκες)
θέλω να ξέρεις ότι οι κατάρες σου έπιασαν τόπο και ότι μετά από 3 χρονάκια σήμερα κάποιος πήγε να με σκοτώσει ενώ πήγαινα κανονικά με το μηχανάκι μου, μιας και το θεώρησε πρέπον να περάσει από πάνω μου για να παρκάρει.Την γλύτωσα με ένα σπασμένο δάχτυλο του ποδιού και κάτι γρατσουνιές. Σε παρακαλώ τώρα που είναι καλοκαίρι σταμάτα τις καταρες γιατί θα ήθελα να κάνω και κάνα μπανάκι μέχρι να τελειώσει το καλοκαίρι.

Ευχαριστώ εκ των προταίρων

TheHackerspace opening: When Great things happen

 I rarely envy people, one of the times I did it was when some guys from Athens announced the creation of a Hackerspace there. I also envied them wen i saw that they started making good work and organizing well. After that I heard about the creation of P-space at Patras and I thought that it was only a mater of time for some people to make something similar to my City.

 A few weeks ago I heard that Efstathios Hatzikyriakidis along with Stavros Kalapothas and Stergios Kalamopoulos where starting a local Hackerspace. I knew Efstathios and he had helped me on the past when I once sent him an e-mail because I wanted some help for Arduino. He was very helpful back then and in a way he had earned my trust.

  So yesterday it was The-Hackerspace opening, and it was an open invitation for everyone to attend and have a talk about our City's Hackerspace. Almost 30 people where there, all curious and all genuine interesting (at least from what I can tell) for it. We had very interesting talks while waiting for the organizers to present us their ideas about the-Hackerspace and you could find all kind of people among us, from hackers to Window users.

At a certain point the people that gathered us all there got our attention and started presenting us their way of thinking of how they would like  the-Hackerspace to work. I was amazed. Their ideas were (are) progressive but at the same time doable. I admit that it was far from what I expected to see in a good way. From what I saw and from the talk we had after their short presentation, other people had the same opinion with me. After that we had a cake and a few hours later we left with the best impressions.

If you are from Thesssaloniki or from a city near there is no excuse for not at least make a visit there. You can find more information about the location of the-Hackespace at

In a city that Great things rarely happen, the-Hackerspace is something at least innovating and it surely deserves our attention and support.

openSUSE Summer Camp Greece 2011

Summer in Greece! Is the weather too hot for you to code or contribute to your favorite FOSS project? Do you need some motivation and a refreshing swim? Come to our Summer Camp!
The Greek openSUSE community is organizing its first openSUSE Summer Camp, in central Greece at Grand Platon Hotel at Olympiaki akti. This is is the beach of the city of Katerini. The doors will be open from the 15th to the 17th of July 2011, at the Heart of Summer!

Sounds awesome, I’ll book my tickets.

So, you’ll be there. What can you expect?
Our goal is to bring FOSS communities closer and encourage people to contribute to their favorite projects.
A lot of people, with little to a lot of experience can benefit from the workshops included in our program, during which we will work on things like translation, wiki usage, coding, packaging and much more, showing how to work inside a community and how to collaborate with others!

Hmmm. But I could go swimming…

There will be relaxing and swimming of course! But hey, we have a common passion, don’t we?
We love what we do, we are having fun contributing to FOSS and we hate doing it alone in our rooms during Summer time. Besides coding, translating and all other ‘working stuff’ there will also be plenty of sun and beach, a large swimming pool and plenty of beers – all paid by you since we only sponsor the sun, the fun and all the other free stuff…
We are looking forward to seeing you at the openSUSE Summer Camp Greece!
Please use to contact the team organizing the event.

openSUSE strategy voting close to the finish line!

As we wrote three weeks ago, June 30th is the deadline for voting for the openSUSE Strategy!


2 years ago the subject came up at the openSUSE conference: what do we want? That is not a simple question. We are a large community with wide-ranging diverse backgrounds, goals and interests.
Having a coherent answer matters: it shows potential new contributors what they can (although not limited) contribute to; it helps us make decisions. Do we focus on fancy web stuff? Do we go for a stable or more experimental product? Do we simplify at all costs or cater to more advanced users? These and more are questions brought up in our strategy discussion.


It took a long time – we are an open community and as such, strategic discussions take time. However, we went through the effort. Lots of input came from a variety of people – each iteration had sometimes over a hundred comments. You can view some of the although you should notice that co-ment is just one of the ways we collected feedback (others being the mailing lists, IRC, forums and more).


While the current proposal is not meant to be limiting new directions or will be forever set in stone, it is meant to provide clarity to our community for the time being. So we do want it to be taken seriously. We develop major software products promoting open source and the use of Linux world wide. We’re a major Linux distribution, the second largest by most metrics. We provide a packaging build service that is used by distributions more than just openSUSE.  We have an obligation to deliver a consistent, quality product to our users. And to provide an open and fun place to be around for contributors. We can’t satisfy every need to the fullest, but what we can do is make clear what we are trying to do here.
Providing that clarity to our users and contributors through this strategy is a major step towards our future. So, we need our membership to vote. To make your voice heard and to know if it truly has the support it needs.
So, if you’re an openSUSE Member, go, read the document one more time and cast your vote!

openSUSE releases milestone 2

About 3 weeks after the first milestone for openSUSE 12.1, today the second milestone has been made available. Following the Roadmap, this is the second of 6 milestone until the openSUSE 12.1 release in November.


openSUSE is developed in a repository called Factory. Packages flow from the devel projects into Factory upon OK from the release team following the Factory Development Model. During the development cycle (more detailed model) periodic releases are made available for testing – these are the milestones. Six of them become available. After some several freezes go into effect, the component freeze just before the fourth milestone for instance. And about a couple of weeks after the last milestone the first of two Release Candidates is made ready for testing. The final openSUSE 12.1 release is expected on November 11th.

Progress since the previous milestone

The first milestone had a huge number of changes and improvements on top of the latest openSUSE release. Again, many packages have been updated. You can check the latest package versions on this page. What are the major changes?
  • Firefox 5 RC
  • Horde4 packages (php5-pear-horde)
  • “The Board”
  • rawstudio
  • llvm/clang 3.0 snapshot
  • many smaller updates to KDE and GNOME applications and desktops
Also nspluginwrapper is now updated which will allow a more stable Flash plugin on 64bit platforms. With this change you can now watch two flash videos at the same time. And over 100 new packages have been added, including extensions for Banshee, some small tools like DDS2tar and brainfuck interpreter, Cdecl (turns C/C++ gibberish into English), cint (small C/C++ interpreter) and a number of other devel and language tools.


On the openSUSE project and factory mailing lists a discussion is taking place centered around the new systemd init system. After the introduction of the road to systemd for openSUSE 12.1 by Frederic Crozat, issues, complaints and limitations of systemd are being discussed and dissected. Changing an init system is an invasive change and systemd has ambitions beyond just replacing sysV not everyone always agrees with. Work will be needed to ensure a stable and usable init system for 12.1 and the team welcomes help and bugreports!

Helping out easier than ever!

As expected from a development release, there is still a lot of work to do, so your input at this early stage will be a huge help in making the final release into the beautifully polished work that we aim for. openSUSE 12.1 Milestone 2 has a list of most annoying bugs here, please add issues you find and help fix them. As Will Stephenson recently blogged, fixing an issue is a matter of BURPing on! Find a how-to here.
So go and see for yourself what the next version of openSUSE has in store for you at our download center.

Ελληνική κοινότητα Mageia

Το Madriva ήταν εξ' απ' ανέκαθεν μια από τις διανομές που μου άρεσαν ιδιαίτερα. Το φόρουμ τους, ήταν πολύ εξυπηρετικό και τα παιδιά εκεί βοηθούσαν αρκετά και ήταν ευγενικότατοι. Χτες μου ήρθε μια ειδοποίηση στο mail μου για την δημιουργία του νέου τους φόρουμ. Είναι ακόμη στην αρχή αλλά είμαι σίγουρος ότι θα πάει το ίδιο καλά. Κατέβασα το iso και το Σ/Κ θα το εγκαταστήσω για να το δοκιμάσω, σε καμία βδομάδα θα σας πω και τις εντυπώσεις μου, αν και είμαι πολύ θετικά προδιατεθειμένος με την συγκεκριμένη διανομή και με την δικτυακή κοινότητα.
Μπορείτε να βρείτε το φόρουμ της κοινότητας εδώ
Να ευχηθώ καλή τύχη στα παιδιά για την προσπάθεια τους και μακάρι να δούμε και κάτι παραπάνω από μια δικτυακή κοινότητα στο μέλλον.

Εξόρμηση ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ

Το ξυπνητήρι χτύπησε 5:45 και σηκώθηκα αμέσως από φόβο μην με πάρει ο ύπνος πάνω στο χουζούρεμα, έφτιαξα καφέ στον φούρνο μικροκυμάτων,έκανα ένα γρήγορο ντουζάκι και ετοίμασα την τσάντα μου. Απάντησα κάποια από τα μέηλ μου και  η ώρα ως δια μαγείας είχε πάει 7:15, πήρα ένα ταξί και πήγα στον σταθμό τον τρένων. Προορισμός: Λάρισα

 Ένα από τα πράγματα που λατρεύω είναι οι μικρές εξορμήσεις, όταν αυτό συνδυάζετε και με κάτι ενδιαφέρον όπως ένα συνέδριο για το ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ με πολλές και ενδιαφέρουσες ομιλίες, τότε μιλάμε για μια πολύ καλή φάση.
 Πολλοί ίσως αναρωτηθείτε για ποιον λόγο δεν έκατσα Θεσσαλονίκη να δω το κομμάτι του συνεδρίου εκεί και αποφάσισα να μπω στην διαδικασία να πάω στην Λάρισα, σας είπα ότι λατρεύω τις εξορμήσεις; Επίσης αποφάσισα να εκμεταλλευτώ στο έπακρο τις 2 μέρες ρεπό που είχα όσο ακόμη το καλοκαίρι δεν είναι στα φόρτε του. Σημαντικός παράγοντας και ότι ήθελα να δω τους φίλους μου εκεί καθώς και να μπω για ακόμα μια φορά στο φανταστικό κλίμα που επικρατεί στο δωματιάκι του Linux Team.

 Παρόλο που είχα αποφασίσει να είμαι τουρίστας αυτή την φορά και να μην μπλεχτώ με booth και τέτοια τελικά με 'έχωσε' ο Diamond_gr στο Gnome3, νιαρφ. Δεν πειράζει, την επόμενη φορά...

 Το τρένο φτάνει σε λίγο και παρόλο τον καφέ που ήπια ακόμα νυστάζω, πράγμα που υπερνικά την θέληση μου να μπλογκάρω, οπότε...

Πως μπορείτε να συνεισφέρετε στο openSUSE και σε άλλα έργα ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ;

Μετά από δυο πολύ καλές παρουσίες, κατά την προσωπική μου άποψη και όχι μόνο, της κοινότητας σε 2 μεγάλα γεγονότα όσων αφορά το ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ της κοινότητας openSUSE, το openFEST 2011 και την Fosscomm στη Πάτρα και κατά τον απολογισμό αυτών προέκυψε ότι ένα από τα ποιο σημαντικά και συχνά ερωτήματα  ήταν:
-Πώς μπορώ να συνεισφέρω στο Project;
Κατά την άποψή μου αυτό το ερώτημα δεν είχε να κάνει μόνο με το δικό μας έργο. Κατάλαβα ότι όλες οι κοινότητες ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ λέμε στον κόσμο τι κάνουμε, καλούμε τον κόσμο να συμμετέχει βοηθώντας στα διάφορα έργα μας αλλά τελικά ίσως δίνουμε λίγες πληροφορίες για το πως κάποιος μπορεί να συνεισφέρει σε αυτά. Με αποτέλεσμα πολλές φορές οι χρήστες να απομακρύνονται από τις κοινότητες νιώθοντας, λανθασμένα φυσικά, ότι δεν μπορούν να συνεισφέρουν κάτι.

Άσχετα με τον αν είστε ένας έμπειρος χρήστης ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ, προγραμματιστής ή ένας τελικός χρήστης, αρχάριος που μόλις κάνατε την πρώτη σας εγκατάσταση Gnu/Linux μπορείτε να προσφέρετε πολύτιμη βοήθεια σε οποιοδήποτε έργο ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ θα θέλατε.
 Παρακάτω θα σας παρουσιάσω κάποιους μόνο από τους πολλούς τρόπους που μπορείτε να το κάνετε αυτό.

Αρχάριοι χρήστες

Μόλις κάνατε την πρώτη σας εγκατάσταση κάποιας διανομής, έχετε ενθουσιαστεί με το γραφικό σας περιβάλλον και με τις δυνατότητες τις οποίες σας προσφέρει το καινούργιο σας σύστημα. Είστε πολύ χαρούμενοι που δεν χρειάζεται να σπαταλήσετε χρήματα για εφαρμογές αλλά παρόλα αυτά αντιμετωπίζετε κάποια προβλήματα που δεν σας αφήνουν να χαρείτε όσο θα θέλατε και καμία φορά σας βγάζουν έξω από τα ρούχα σας και σας κάνουν να σκέφτεστε το παλιό σας λειτουργικό.

Πως όλη αυτή η κατάσταση μπορεί να σας κάνει να προσφέρετε πραγματικά σε ένα έργο ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ;

Γραφτείτε σε ένα από τα πολλά φόρουμ και λίστες ταχυδρομείου που υπάρχουν και αρχίστε να κάνετε ερωτήσεις ψάχνοντας τις λύσεις για τα προβλήματα σας. Αυτό δείχνει στους προγραμματιστές που υπάρχουν προβλήματα και στην κοινότητα που υστερεί η τεκμηρίωση τους.
Με τον καιρό θα μάθετε κάποια πράγματα με τα οποία θα μπορείτε αργότερα να βοηθήσετε με την σειρά σας άλλους χρήστες. Το ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ πέρα από μια μεγάλη γκάμα προγραμμάτων και λειτουργικών συστημάτων είναι και στάση ζωής μέσα στην οποία η αλληλοβοήθεια μεταξύ των χρηστών παίζει πολύ σημαντικό ρόλο. Η αίσθηση ότι κάποιος σας βοηθάει χωρίς να έχει να κερδίσει κάτι από εσάς καθώς και το να βοηθάτε κάποιους χωρίς να θέλετε να κερδίσετε κάτι από αυτούς είναι με μια λέξη:Φανταστική

Όχι τόσο αρχάριοι χρήστες

Η γραμμή του πότε κάποιος χρήστης θεωρείτε αρχάριος και πότε όχι είναι κάτι που δύσκολα διακρίνετε. Συνήθως ένας χρήστης θεωρείτε όχι και τόσο αρχάριος (κατά την γνώμη μου), όταν χρησιμοποιεί το λειτουργικό του σύστημα ή τα όποια προγράμματα ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ τα οποία έχει, έχοντας λύσει όλα τα προβλήματα του και έχει κατανοήσει σε μεγάλο βαθμό πως αυτά λειτουργούν. Τότε είναι σε θέση να βοηθήσει και αυτός με την σειρά του κάποιους άλλους χρήστες και να κάνει αναφορές σφαλμάτων (Bug reports) για τα σφάλματα που πιθανών να προκύψουν σε αυτά που χρησιμοποιεί, μεταξύ άλλων.

Έμπειροι χρήστες

Η εμπειρία έρχεται με την εξοικείωση του χρήστη με το ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ. Ένας έμπειρος χρήστης μπορεί να προσφέρει σχεδον σε όλες τις πτυχές του οποιουδήποτε έργου αυτός θέλει.
 Μπορεί να κάνει αναφορές σφαλμάτων (Bug reports), να βοηθάει άλλους χρήστες και να γράφει τεκμηρίωση γύρω από τα προγράμματα τα οποία χρησιμοποιεί αν πιστεύει ότι αυτή υστερεί.

Όλοι οι χρήστες ανεξάρτητα από τον βαθμό εμπειρίας τους μπορούν να βοηθήσουν με πολλούς τρόπους.
-Μπορείτε να λέτε στον κόσμο τις εμπειρίες σας από το ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ
-Μπορείτε να διαβάζετε τεκμηρίωση και να κάνετε διορθώσεις αρχίζοντας από την ορθογραφία ;-)
-Μπορείτε να βοηθήσετε στην μετάφραση της τεκμηρίωσης
-Μπορείτε να βοηθάτε στις διάφορες εκδηλώσεις σαν προσωπικό του booth
Τα παραπάνω είναι μόνο μερικά από τα πράγματα τα οποία μπορείτε να κάνετε για να βοηθήσετε το openSUSE και τα άλλα έργα ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ, το μόνο που χρειάζεστε είναι θέληση και διάθεση για δουλειά.
Να περνάτε καλά

Why you should not be afraid to mingle with the openSUSE Project

I see many people coming to the openSUSE project but only a few of them (the new people) actually participate in the mailing list talks and on IRC channels talks.
I kept asking myself why? Why is this happening? Is there something wrong or what?
Recently I spotted a new openSUSE ambassador that was too 'tight' when we were talking about community matters and I took the opportunity to open a conversation with him about all of the above and what I got from that is that people are often don't say their opinion because they fear of saying something wrong, also they fear on saying their different opinion when they disagree with an older community member and other similar situations.
come play with us

If you are one of those guys and you have similar fears FORGET THEM.
Community needs you to have a different opinion.
Community needs you to speak up.
Don't be afraid to expose yourself, you are among friends here.
This is free software baby, you cannot actually be wrong. Thinking differently is what started Free Software after all.
Saying out  what you think is what makes openSUSE Project and community great.
Disagree with ANYONE if you think you have a point.
Do not leave other people guide you to places you don't want to go.
There are no Rockstars in our community.
Together we are stronger

If I haven't convinced you yet, I failed.

openSUSE happy to welcome 16 GSOC students!

April 28th, 2011 by News Team

We’ve got excellent news! We’ve received many excellent submissions for our Google Summer of Code application and Google has given us 16 slots. This means that 16 eager students have been selected and will start working with their mentors on an awesome openSUSE project!
According to the GSOC timeline the students will now start with the Community Bonding period in which they have time to set up their development stuff, get acquainted with their mentors and get to know the openSUSE community. This means we’ll see those students on our communication channels, be it IRC, forums or mailing lists! Give them a warm welcome!
In a little over three weeks, the coding will start. I’m sure you’re all excited to find out what projects these students will be working on! Well, we were too, so we’ve compiled a nice list of the accepted proposals and asked a few students a quick quote on IRC!


A project which will probably draw much praise is ‘SAX3′ which indeed, as the name suggests, aims to write a successor for the popular SAX tool. Manu Gupta, an Indian openSUSE contributor who has been around as openSUSE WIKI and marketing contributor will be mentored by Michal Hrusecky. Manu was jumping with joy following the “you’ve been accepted into GSOC” email on Monday, happy to have a chance to bring back
“one thing old openSUSE users were missing :)”
While Manu has been around openSUSE and might not have to introduce himself over the coming 3 weeks, he is still extremely happy with this opportunity. Promoting openSUSE and Free Software in general is not easy in India and having had the opportunity to work for an international community sponsored by such a well-known entity as Google will surely help him convince others of the value of Free Software!


Christos “mpounta” Bountalis is a fresh Greek contributor from Salamis, an island near Athens. On the obvious question what Salamis has to do with the famous meat product he answered that they just sound similar… He got involved with openSUSE because he
“found many helpful and fun people, and that made me wanna be involved with openSUSE specifically”
So he found a cool GSOC idea on the wiki and sent in a proposal.
by cpt<HUN> on flickr
Christos wants to develop what he has temporarily named “fillup-ng”. In his own words:
“Fillup is a tool for merging sysconfig files which is widely used in openSUSE. fillup-ng, the tool that i will write will offer similar functionality with new features like support for other configuration files like xml, .ini maybe etc. fillup-ng will be implemented following a modular architecture that will support plugins and will make the process of maintaining and further improving the application a lot easier for everyone”
. For end users, fillup is sometimes useful to merge configuration files but mostly it is a tool ‘under the hood’ making the life of openSUSE developers easier.
And as our former board member Pascal “Yaloki” Bleser commented,
“it has to merge existing settings with your changes or defaults that come from the package, etc… hence not necessarily as trivial as it might sound :)”

OBS Plasmoid

We have to give a big Kudos! to Saurabh Sood. His GSOC project did not make it in the 16 slots but we heard from his mentor Will “Bille” Stephenson that he has decided to do it anyway! According to Bille:
“the preparatory work he has done in learning about javascript Plasmoids and OBS has inspired him to do the project voluntarily”


But those are just a few of the projects. You can find a list on the Google Summer of Code site here but we’ll include a short overview below.

Create a testsuite for btrfs features

Aditya wants to extend the XFS testsuite to test btrfs-specific functions like snapshot creation/deletion, balancing and relocation.

PackageKit backend and AppStream integration for Software Center

Alex Eftimie will be part of the AppStream initiative, porting Ubuntu’s Software Center to PackageKit and integrating OCS based metadata to provide a GNOME based software installer for openSUSE.

Heroku like solution for SUSE Studio

Bjørn Arild Mæland wants to work on the Dister command line tool. He aims to add support for Rack (Ruby) and WSGI (Python) compliant web frameworks. The goal is to improve the user experience so people and make for example the use of direct Amazon EC2 deployment easy.

openSUSE Build Service (OBS) for Android

Justine Leng wants to improve and add to the interface, not only making the Android OBS interface more powerful but also more stable by writing a test suite.
by [mementosis] on flickr

new python obs library (osc code cleanup)

Marcus Hüwe will cleanup the osc (command line tool for OBS) code and refactor it into a new python OBS library and make sure osc uses it.

SUSE bug reporter

Mihnea Dobrescu-Balaur aims to write a SUSE bug reporter to help users submit bugreports more easily while at the same time ensuring better quality.

Separating and Porting YUI library to other operating systems (Linux Based)

N.B.Prashanth wants to separate the YUI library from YaST. In YaST, YUI is responsible for allowing to have separate GUI frontends for one backend code. YUI supports GTK, Qt as well as ncurses but currently only works on (open)SUSE due to its dependency on YaST. Having a separated YUI will allow other projects to use it to write toolkit-independent applications.

Add ext4 snapshots support to snapper

Piyush will add Ext4 support to Snapper, the btrfs snapshot management tool in openSUSE.

Command line client for Suse Studio Abstract

Ratan aims to develop a command-line tool to build appliances.

ICC Device Profile Repository

Sebastian Oliva will create a a color database to allow clients to request or submit color profiles for color managed devices. Color profiles are critical to ensure accurate color reproduction on print and screen content.

Creating a browser-based user interface test-suite

Stoyan Dimkov will design and implement an automated browser-based test-suite for the web interface of OpenSUSE Build Service.

Porting Wubi to OpenSUSE

weijie yang wants to simplify OpenSUSE’s installation for new users. He will do this by taking Ubuntu’s Wubi tool and porting it to openSUSE.

Yes, it is an impressive list of projects. While usually not all GSOC projects succeed, these proposals were pretty solid and we have high expectations of the students. Of course, it will depend not only on them. Mentors will need to be available and for the rest of us – we also need to help out! Not only by being welcoming, giving advice and answering their questions but also by keeping them engaged and asking questions, showing interest in what is going on!
We wish the Google Summer of Code students as well as anyone else who’s using this opportunity to get involved with Free Software the very, very best the coming 4 months!

openSUSE Tumbleweed status for the week of April 22, 2011

Here's a short note as to the status of some recent activity in the
openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo:

- new kernel updates tracking the upstream stable 2.6.38 releases.
- lxde (and its sub-packages) was added
- calibre was added
- other smaller packages were added
- KDE update seems stable and working.  It's in the
  openSUSE:Tumbleweed:KDE repo if anyone wants to test it out now.  I'll
  be working next few weeks to merge this into the main
  openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo as my bandwidth allows.
- There is a GNOME 3.0 Tumbleweed repo at openSUSE:Tumbleweed:GNOME.
  It's properly building right now, but the same caveats remain for the
  main GNOME 3.0 repo (i.e. network manager issues with KDE, and other
  minor stuff), so I can't merge it to the main openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo
  just yet.  I'll wait for these changes to settle down, but if you
  want, feel free to try out the repo for your GNOME 3.0 systems running
  Tumbleweed.  I'll keep it up to date as the changes merge into the
  main GNOME 3.0 repo.
- artwork questions were raised with one proposed logo already sent in.
  More to come in this area hopefully soon.
- There were a few "version downgrades" that happened as the upstream
  project release number was changed to reflect the basesystem release
  number correctly.  This will probably continue to happen as this
  change is propagated throughout the openSUSE build system to fix up
  these errors by the various developers.  You can safely ignore them
  when they happen.

As always, if anyone knows of any packages they wish to see added to
Tumbleweed, please let me know.

GSoC - DOs and DON'Ts

Soon we'll all hear the news on the students accepted to Google Summer of Code. I'm excited and I'm sure so are a lot of students!

Once the news is in, it is time to start getting to know your mentor, getting your development environment up and starting to code. To help students, mentors and admins, let me echo a post by Lydia Pintscher to Planet openSUSE pointing to three blogs about DOs and DON'Ts she wrote with two other experienced GSoC mentors:

Donnie Berkholz from and Gentoo, Kevin Smith from XMPP and I have written a series of blog posts for Google’s Open Source blog about the dos and don’ts of Google Summer of Code. Check them out. They have useful tips no matter your role in GSoC. There is a post for students, admins and mentors.

I think I can summarize many of the tips for students as: take a GSoC project serious, it a real job! There is a serious commitment on the side of the organization (mentoring!) as well as the side of Google (payment!). And there is a lot in it for you, not just the money but also the learning opportunity. And a successful GSoC looks good on your resume as well!


Don't underestimate the value of GSoC and work in a FOSS community in general on your resume. As you know, all employers want 18 year old employees with 20 years experience. So having done some work in a FOSS community counts!

And as Boudewijn said in the first comment on the tips for students, taking your summer job for Google & your project serious also means you don't disappear at the end of the summer. It looks BAD to an employer as it signals little commitment to what you do. Especially if you have delivered "almost-ready code" which you never finish. You're basically saying that you are not very reliable!


Don't think potential employers won't see your GSoC work. Most, and especially the better employers, will do a search on your name and have a good look at the results. It is very likely that, once you've finished your GSoC, googling your name finds your project in the top-3 results. Moreover, if you hang around and keep doing some work, you'll learn more, build up an even more valuable resume and you'll more likely to be able to give your mentor up as a reference to a future employer.


There's no guarantee, but maybe your GSoC one day leads to a job at a Free Software company. And a job in a Free Software company is more fun, really. You often get not only more pay (frankly not that important once you make enough to live OK) but also more responsibility and respect. Even if you get a job which isn't Free Software related, if you have the experience of working in a community, you will have a better position in your first job. You'll know better how to interact with people. How to write readable, maintainable code. When to ask questions. Who to ask. Such skills are useful so you're a more valuable employee - one who gets more choice, freedom and responsibility!

Taking your GSoC serious also means more fun on a personal level. At least I'd argue that having your code finished, shipped to a few million users and having your name on it as developer or maintainer is not just cool on your resume but pretty awesome in general!

Even without Google

Last but not least, as Boudewijn blogged, GSoC is not the only way to get most of the benefits of becoming part of a Free Software community! Even if your GSoC project was not accepted, you can ask if you can do it anyway. Mentors often have no problem mentoring you without a GSoC and while you don't get the money, meaning you'll probably have to find another summer job, you'll still get to code, learn & become part of the team.


So. Take your GSoC project serious. It means more fun and better results. Both for yourself now as well as for your future!

Have fun!

Payback is a bitch

Setting priorities is really important to our existence. One of the mistakes many people do, myself among them, is to set stuff above our-self's and personal health. Most times we suppose that our mind and body forgets and forgives but this is just a shitty illusion. Payback is a bitch and this week I got it all in my face.

Cracking under pressure

Every now and then you pressure yourself to finish various things you started.If Those days are not combined  by waking up in good mood, there are simply one of those days in your life that sucked.
Today I had one of those days.
Today I am sick and tired of sick and tired.
Today I dislike the world.
Today only a few things can make me happy.
Today grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hard Rock and Free Software: part one

Some days ago I was reading again a book about Terminal command line and at some point I felt like listening to music and especially some good old 80's Rock so I picked one of my favorite play-lists and BANG, Skid Row Poetry right in to my face...

Since I was born they couldn't hold me down
Another misfit kid, another burned-out town

Never played by the rules I never really cared
My nasty reputation takes me everywhere

I look and see it's not only me
So many others have stood where I stand
We are the young so raise your hands

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're the one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

So listening to those lyrics of 'Youth Gone Wild'  I started thinking what are the similarities when I was starting my life as a Rocker and my life as a Free Software supporter. I found many similarities that I hadn't noticed until that day. I was shocked to be honest, so I thought why not blog about it? And here we are, as always continue reading at your own risk ;-)

1) Family affairs 

Well when I was a young boy and started to listen to rock my father wanted to send me to an exorcist because he thought I was possessed, to be honest I felt possessed my self with all that energy that music had that I never experienced before.

When I grew up (?!?) and discovered Free Software, my father though I was possessed for a second time in my life since he suddenly saw me standing in front of a screen reading for hours, standing still, I also felt a bit strange since the power of knowledge of that new stuff filled me with energy once again.

2)Surrounding Community

Back then, when I started listening to Rock and I went to my friends with a tape filled with Aerosmith, Twisted Sister, Deep purple and Scorpions they thought I was becoming something else that they don't like so we split and I was alone until I found some other Rockers and started crush in to places where we spent all of our time listening to Rock, some of us tried to learn to play guitar and drums. We were part of a community.

When I started using Free Software and I tried to talk to my friends about it and shared them some live Cd's I had made for them, they said that I was loosing my mind, so I was alone until I found others like me and a LUG where we crushed all of our free time and running various Linux distro's, some of us tried to learn Python, Java and Pearl. We were part of a community.

3)Freedom of doing whatever you want, freedom to fail.

As Rockers we started playing guitars and drums and we didn't have to be good, we didn't wanted to be professionals, we just cared to play. We organized gigs and we were drinking beers. Many times we were having gigs with just our friends, some times even without them, we are talking about epic fails but we didn't actually care because we did what we wanted just because we liked the whole situation, we didn't want to make money out of it, we did it for ourselves and that is why we had great fun with it.( Although we all dreamed at least once to become RockStars)

As Free Software users we started writing code(not me :-p ) testing various distributions and also building custom distributions based on other distributions or playing with various GUI's, we don't care if what we are making actually works most of the times and we enjoy failing, since we liked the road better than the actual destination. We tried to convince people test what we do. Sometimes some of our friends did that,sometimes not even our friends accepted to try it. We didn't actually get bothered by it(at least for a long time). We didn't care about making money out of it, we had our jobs. We did it(and still do it) for ourselves and that is why we have great fun with it.(Although we all dreamed ourselves at least once as the next Linus Torvalds).

That's it for now. Part one ends here.

Do what you Love
Love what you do
Love thy guitar as you Love thy desktop
Because those will guide you to the path of ...

Hardware Hacking: Το μεγάλο κάψιμο

Πολλά πράγματα μου έκαναν εντύπωση κατά την επίσκεψη μου στην SCaLE. Ένα από τα πράγματα αυτά ήταν το hardware hacking και η ενασχόληση του κόσμου με το λεγόμενο Free Hardware.
Στην Ελλάδα το ποιο γνωστό από όλα αυτά είναι φυσικά το arduino για το οποίο πρόσφατα έλαβα πολλές χρήσιμες πληροφορίες από τον Ευστάθιο Χατζηκυριακίδη ο οποίος είναι και από τους Έλληνες που 'το έχουν' σε αυτόν τον τομέα και τον οποίο επί της ευκαιρίας ευχαριστώ πολύ για την βοήθεια.
Γνώρισα τα παιδιά του Crashspace και έπαθα την πλάκα μου, Κολλητήρια  μοβ μονόκεροι, τρισδιάστατους εκτυπωτές και arduino για να τους ράψεις στα ρούχα σου η για να φτιάξεις καπέλα που δείχνουν τον μαγνητικό βορρά  Κάψιμο μεν ως ενός σημείου, απίστευτες κατασκευές από την άλλη και πάνω από όλα απίστευτο γέλιο και εποικοδομητική σκέψη. ότι μπορούσες να σκεφτείς, αυτοί μπορούσαν να το κάνουν κατασκευή...

openSUSE 11.4 Release Party

With over 100.000 downloads the first 24 hours of the release we believe we have every right to celebrate.
