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.

Hi, Robert,
By analogy with Gentoo, we create checksum files with the extension DIGESTS.

Hello Alexander, and thank you for your prompt reply.

You can see the checksums in Packages. For example:

I looked at that file as you suggested, and I do see checksums for individual packages. However, I don…

02/01 - MD5SUM file? (Robert Storey)

Hello everyone, this is my very first post.

I just downloaded Calculate minutes ago, and I'm enthusiastic about trying it. I'm currently a Debian user, but I dislike systemd, which is getting hard to avoid. I've used Gentoo in the past, but it's time-consuming to compile. I'm hoping that Calculat…

camera protocol maybe? and this permission thing is a bug. still from kde 3.5 :D

As far as I know, the connection provides support package kde-misc/kio-mtp, but it has not yet KDE5 ported. Perhaps there are other ways.

Thank you!
