What is… Calculate Linux?¶
You can learn about Linux ®
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.

How may i check thos…
08/22 - RE: KDE Framework 5? (Iurii Blokhin)
The steps to install KDE Framework 5 are the same as Gentoo. At you own risk. Calculate Linux at now does not have any special settings for Plasma 5
08/22 - RE: kernel name with no extension (Sylvain Bonnemaison)
I still have the same name after unmerge, removing the source directory and emerge again.
cl-kernel is not yet installed on the system. Is it the problem?
How can I reinstall cl-kernel?
08/21 - KDE Framework 5? (sergio ruppel)
Hi, im new to Calculate, been using about a week as main OS, actually its my only OS installed atm...
08/21 - RE: fat codepage problems (Iurii Blokhin)
This is precompiled in kernel.
In CLS is already precompiled xorg, openbox, etc... If you want to build EVERYTHING on your pc - you need to change make.conf
and something optimization flags you want.
And then rebuild the system.
08/21 - RE: systemd renamed network eth0 (Iurii Blokhin)
No network interfaces available on the system or no daemons in /etc/init.d?
08/21 - RE: kernel name with no extension (Iurii Blokhin)
Try to build kernel again. This error was fixed.
08/20 - kernel name with no extension (Sylvain Bonnemaison)
When the kernel is built, the name does not contain calculate or CLD extension. What's wrong in the system configuration?
# eselect kernel list Available kernel symlink targets:  linux-3.14.16- *
I'm using distros (layman) for system profile configuration.
