GSoC introduction – openSUSE@ARM

May 4th, 2009 by

Hi openSUSE community!

I’m glad my proposal was accepted and today I want to introduce myself and my GSoC project.

/me , thats Jan-Simon Möller and I’m just finishing my Diploma in electrical engineering at the Leibniz Universität Hannover. I’m coordinator of the openSUSE Weekly Newsletter and contribute also to the hamradio repository, the iFolder project and the openSUSE Build Service. See also my “People of openSUSE” interview.

My Project in short:  openSUSE@ARM
My aim during GSoC 2009 is to port first the base to the ARM platform. Then KIWI needs also some attention when it comes to imaging and after that the tools, Kernel and X11.

I’ll heavily use the capabilities of the openSUSE Build Service, which is now ready for ARM.

During the last few days, I’ve done many little preparations to get it all flying when GSoC coding period starts.

Stay tuned !
