2024-06-08 How Do Aeon and Kalpa Relate (sfalken.tech)

So I was made aware of a thread on reddit where it’s brought up that folks don’t understand the relationship between openSUSE MicroOS, openSUSE Aeon, and openSUSE Kalpa. This blog post will attempt to clear up some misunderstandings and misconceptions about the relationship between the three “Distributions”.

Gnome version WHAT? Oo #OpenSuse #Gnome #Linux

@Natanox You're running Leap, which is a "stable" release, so yes, you're going to get an "old" version of software.

Holy shit snacks, #openSUSE.

@thelinuxcast This happens a few times a year, when some major dependency down in the guts of the stack gets updated. And everything that links to it gets rebuilt up the stack.

Well. Seems I have to reinstall #OpenSUSE #Tumbleweed. I tried restoring as many of my custom #KDE theme settings as I could remember before retrying to upgrade to #Plasma6. It didn't help. Colors being screwed I get, but why are so many things are straight up missing. Volume widget? BT widget? Whole sections in the Plasma Settings are just gone. ???

Plasma 6. Dark theme broken, widgets and option sections in the Plasma settings are missing.

@macberg Are they still missing, if you create a new user, and login there?

@macberg Well that's certainly less than optimal.

Blog about some various Linux stuff (sfalken.tech)

Just wanted to drop there here, in case anybody finds it useful. I started doing some blogging, mostly with the intention of archiving how in the hell I've done things on Linux, in the past, so I know where to find them the next time I need to do them. There will probably be other stuff there, with time, some of it not linux...

It feels pretty good, as well as looks pretty good. YaST and the YaST installer have been basically in maintenance mode for a long time, without any active development for a number of years now, and it's certainly time to move on.

Well, I can say, with all certainty, that while I appreciate the submissions, and the community making themselves heard, that isn't the new Kalpa logo.

SFaulken avatar

Well, there's already a discussion on the mailing lists, and while I can't speak for the project, (nor am I an attorney, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night), the "Main" openSUSE Project logo is a registered trademark of SUSE Software Solutions Germany GmbH, so it's highly unlikely that it's going to change.
