    Default Tumbleweed - Move to x86-64-v2 (plus mitigation plan and call for help)

    Hi All
    Just a heads up for all the old systems in use (eg V1 cpu's and x86 [32bit])

    https://lists.opensuse.org/archives/...PHMVSPXRRQVSB/

    Things will be changing.

    You can check via;

    Code:
    /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 --help
    
    or
    
    inxi -aC

    Thanks for the heads-up.
    That's probably bad news if you use a Brother printer/scanner, a lot of them require some 32bit packages.

    Hi,
    I am one of those.But I found this workaround might help when it happens.
    I am going to put the link here for future reference.

    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    Thanks. After checking the mailing list, I was able to get my printer working via IPP. So I should be covered.

    This is a bad idea. Actively maintained 32-bit packages should remain in the main repository for those who use bleeding edge computers with peripherals that only have 32-bit drivers. When it comes to Linux, this is most desktop Linux users and this proposed change would likely break most of those user's computers.

    Please read the announcement again:
    To become Old Factory* for users of legacy systems, we will introduceopenSUSE:Factory:Intel, the same setup we have for ports like ARM,PowerPC, zSystems, RISCV.This repo will build packages for x86-64 (v1) plus i586, so basicallywhat the current openSUSE:Factory repository does.
    Users who can't migrate to V2 and i586 users: The repository list will need to be updated away from download o.o/tumbleweed/repo/oss to something like download.o.o/ports/intel/tumblewed/repo/oss
    That means all the people with their ancient machines (from a museum) only need to change their repo and all is good for the next years...
