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.

Je rebondis (un peu tard) sur le sujet créé par ivan zo.
Et je pose la même question puisque les réponses données par Julien et franc ne semblent pas avoir résolu le souci du paquet pré-installé puis supprimé et qui repointe le bout de son nez lors de la mise à jour système suivante.

Checking for Mesa / GLU: Checking for Qt4: ** qt4 not working!

I suggest to re-emerge qtcore first or try to update the system:
  1. emerge --sync
  2. emerge -avuND world
  3. eselect python update
  4. python-updater
  5. perl-cleaner --all
  6. emerge -a --depclean
  7. revdep-rebuild -i
  8. etc-update…

I don't understand how you broke your system. Just installed cld, installed kernel 4.0.3 and installed app-emulation/virtualbox-4.3.26. And guess? Everything works.
Please show all what you unmask/mask and use changed. Please, show all changes from /etc/portage

What version of distro you are using? CLD, CLDX, CLS? Have you installed dev-qt/qtopengl?
