Calculate Linux

What is… Calculate Linux?

slide show

You can learn about Linux ® here.
The Calculate project features several distributions, optimized for two distinct groups of people: home users as well as small and medium businesses that prefer open-source to proprietary solutions.

Calculate Linux Desktop is a complementary solution for the Server and together they provide important features like roaming profiles and centralized software deployment.

Calculate Directory Server can successfully replace a Windows NT ® domain controller (Windows clients supported) and provides additional services that can be deployed in a matter of minutes: LDAP, Mail, Jabber and many others.

Calculate Linux is based on Gentoo that is well known for its stability and great performance on a broad range of hardware: from Pentium Pro to modern CPUs.

Why make another distribution?

Most of the modern Linux distributions are intended for enthusiasts, except Novell SLES/SLED, Ubuntu and RedHat EL. However, even if you use these, setting up a client/server environment could be tricky (especially when you have to manage both Windows and Linux clients). We created our own distribution to help other people who want to use GNU/Linux instead of a proprietary OS for their business needs.

03/21 - RE: Install disc will not boot. (João Filipe)

Very strange problem certainly is a problem on your VB config because I test (my version of calculate is cls not xfce or KDE) and for me works but I also stop on a long boot process mode with the penguin that you can see on image.


03/21 - RE: Install disc will not boot. (Matthew Collinsworth)

Yes. I have the "cldx-14.12.1-x86_64.iso" and am using x64 Gentoo selection under linux in Virtual Box.

The screenshot shows the vm screen and the VB settings summery.

03/20 - Install Qt apps on XFCE (Carlos Hurtado)

I have XFCE. I want to install Qt applications that depend on KDE libraries (like Okular, kfind, k3b, etc). But do not download the portage of CL else Gentoo.
How could download the overlay of CL?
