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.

You might want to check the Gentoo Forums also, since Calculate is Gentoo + it's own prebuilt very capable versions and since there are more Gentoo users, Gentoo's Forums are more active.

Thanks for your response farouk rabrab, I was using the sabayon overlay, and it was really wreaking havoc on my system, so much that I just went ahead and did a fresh install. What information does "equery u udev" give me?

"sys-fs/udisks-1.0.5::sabayon" have you calculate-linux or sabayon ?!

post the output of "equery u udev"

09/16 - RE: cpupower vs cpufrequtil (Marek Matej)


after emerging you need to add the service to default runlevel

# rc-update add cpupower default
# rc-update add laptop_mode default

and/or start the services by hand without reset

# /etc/init.d/cpupower
# /etc/init.d/laptop_mode

I don't remember an…

Is there anything you did after emerging cpupower? Did you need to delete or adjust any config files?

Thank you!
