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.

02/14 - RE: How to upgrade EAPI 6 to a higher version (dragan legic)

I know you do not adore a layman, but I need to use a couple of added repositories because these programs do not exist in Calculate and Gentoo. The most important one I use is radeon-profiles for my graphic card and I'm hoping to better cooling the graphic card through t…

What are you use version of sys-apps/portage?

You are right, it is better to keep zz-files under control in order not to catch the lock in the future when updating.

02/14 - RE: How to upgrade EAPI 6 to a higher version (dragan legic)

I know what it's for, but I've lost my nerves, but for many days I've been fighting for IPV6, EAPI7. I contacted the author chaoslbab because that layman began to suck. The author told me that CLD was not fit to receive EAPI7 (whatever it was) and set up its chaoslab. A couple of days of shutdown an…

From my experience, this file has an impact because Porthole offers writing in zz-files, plus there are written versions of programs that are old, parameters that are no longer visible, programs that do not already have.

02/14 - RE: zz-autounmask (Alexander Tratsevskiy)

I do not think that these files are somehow affected, but of course you can delete them.

Emerge is a package manager, portage - the package that installs it )

I would suggest installing the latest version of CL from the image, because upgrading the system two years ago will not be easy.

Thank you!
