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.

merci beaucoup Adrien :)

10/18 - RE: mirroirs (Adrien D)


le make.conf se trouve dans /etc/portage/make.conf/custom si tu veux le personnaliser.

Le miroir le plus rapide est sélectionné à la mise à jour. Si tu veux en fixer un, ça se passe dans le fichier /var/lib/calculate/calculate.env et tu définis le miroir manuellement avec cette ligne

Won t . After all i found out in other forums it s only possible with systemd. Only in Manjaro Forums other ways discussed. Maybye i find out more

10/15 - RE: Ask if someone tested this and if it worked! (Michael Schintler)

Good idea!!! Thank u i give it a try

10/13 - RE: Ask if someone tested this and if it worked! (Tomasz Kaczmarczyk)

Same error's on my side. As I see issues list, it probably won't work under openrc. Or maybe it just requires systemd lib's but I don't know how to do it. On debian like distro's, there is something like sytemd-shim which provides that.

10/13 - RE: [Résolu] Menulibre pour XFCE (liOnux from Earth)

Il n'y a plus de versions 2.x.x dans les dépots Gentoo.
Mais chez moi, seule la dernière version testing 13.04.17 fonctionne.

10/13 - RE: problème mise à jour (liOnux from Earth)


235 paquets à installer ?!
Il semblerait que tu as trop attendu avant de faire les mises à jour : c'est pas terrible pour une rolling release comme Calculate.
Ou alors ton iso est trop vieille, prends plutôt une "Current releases".

10/13 - RE: Des cadenas dans /home/Keko (Keko Taki)

D'accord merci d'avoir répondu à ma question.
Bonne soirée !

Moi aussi j'avais un fichier wget-log dans /home/lionux/, avec comme propriétaire "root" (d'où les cadenas).
Je viens de le supprimer sans problème. C'était sûrement un fichier log, donc pas nécessaire.

Thank you!
