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.

The cause of the error is not found, recompilation is not helpful. We downgrade. We are waiting for when the Portage will update 41.0.1.

10/07 - RE: Live USB Persistence (Michael Holberton)

Hi Alex,

I forgot to mention that it is the XFCE version.

From the Grub menu I chose the 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Which theme do you suggest I try?

Thanks, Michael.

Which distribution do you load a LiveUSB? Can you change the theme and can not see the font from a Calculate Console? Can you make a screenshot?

Section Builder from the Calculate Console works including LiveUSB. In Unetbootin not necessary. Calculate Linux 15 supports booting from a created or c…

Thank you for your timely response. I downloaded the Spec sheet but am unsure about what instructions I need to add to the bootloader in order to obtain a working, visible display.
